Leeds have already accounted for Premier League opposition in the shape of Everton and Southampton in the Capital One Cup this term while their form in the Championship has also been decent of late, Neil Warnock’s men having won four out of the last five.
Moreover, the Whites come into their League Cup quarter final clash with Chelsea on the back of three consecutive home successes and the Blues head north having lost out to Corinthians in the Club World Cup final on Sunday, so it’s fair to assume that one or two punters will be keen to back Leeds at 7/2 with bet365 to book their place in the last four at the expense of Rafa Benitez’s men.
However, Chelsea are strongly favoured by bookmakers at 17/20 via William Hill and they can make their Premier League class tell by carding a narrow triumph at Elland Road.
However, the best bet in West Yorkshire could be bet365′s 9/2 for Fernando Torres to open the scoring. The Spaniard has enjoyed something of a return to form in recent weeks, notching five times in four outings across all competitions and with Benitez a man that knows how to get the best out of the former Liverpool striker, Torres’ hot streak could continue.
