Carling Cup betting preview: Arsenal v Man City
Arsenal take on Manchester City tonight in arguably the pick of Tuesday’s Carling Cup quarter-finals.
The home side are expected to rest the likes of Robin van Persie, Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey and Abou Diaby, while Park Ju-young and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could be in line for starting spots.
Manchester City will be without the suspended Mario Balotelli and Gareth Barry, while Owen Hargreaves, Kolo Toure and Stefan Savic could all play a part.
Bet365 make Man City 13/10 favourites to win the match within 90 minutes, with Arsenal offered at 15/8. The draw is priced at 5/2.
With no replays in the Carling Cup the game could go to extra time or even penalties. City are 4/6 to progress to the semi-final by any means, with Arsenal priced at 11/10 to reach the last four.
Chelsea meet Liverpool in another stand-out quarter-final tonight, while Cardiff host Blackburn.
The fourth quarter-final sees Manchester United meet Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.
