  • Football League Cup Third Round Results

    Here are the list of results that happened on yesterday's game on the English Football league cup 

    1) Nottingham Forest 0 Arsenal 4: 

    With an amazing flow of passess and goals Arsenal beats the Nottingham forest by four goals to nil. The new comers Granit Xhaka and Lucas Perez shows their value with out hesitations and arsene wenger was delgihted. 

     

     

    The Gunners won their last league fixture in convincing fashion, dismantling newly-promoted Hull City 4-1 at the KCOM Stadium. However, few of the players who started and starred in that win are likely to feature against Nottingham Forest, with Wenger traditionally using the EFL Cup to rotate his squad and give youth a chance. 

    Lucas Perez scored his first Arsenal goals as they reached the fourth round of the EFL Cup with a comfortable win at Championship side Nottingham Forest.

    Granit Xhaka's stunning 30-yard strike gave the Gunners the lead. Former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner shot wide for Forest before Lucas doubled Arsenal's lead from the penalty spot after Chuba Akpom was fouled.

     

    Lucas then rounded the goalkeeper for his second before Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain drove in a late fourth.

     

     

    Nottingham Forest boss Philippe Montanier: "Like the team, Niklas Bendtner started very well at the beginning and then after it was very difficult for him because Arsenal had the ball and he did not have a lot of opportunity to play.

    "But physically I am surprised he is so fit because he had not a big pre-season with Copenhagen.

    "It was a good experience not only for Nicklas but for all the players because Arsenal have great technique, better than us, and it was difficult for us but my players, they gave everything."

    Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said: "Lucas did well. He's quick, he's determined. He uses well his left foot - a bit too much in my taste. He doesn't use his right enough. Overall he's like all the left-footed players, you know.

    "But I like his second goal because he has shown not only technique but determination and fight for the ball and finishing and I like that. The part he played in the goal of Oxlade-Chamberlain shows his awareness of other people and it is intelligent play.

    "But the most important thing for me is that we win the game. Who scores is not so important but for the player individually it's good because he can convince people he can play for us. It will help himself as well to grow in belief."

     2) Leicester CIty Vs Chelsea 

    The defending champions (Red Foxes) had a big dream to get in the top of the Football League Cup in order to increase their chance of getting a cup in the competition year but it didn't happen as they expected. 

    Leicester City thrashed Burnley 3-0 in the weekend Premier League fixture after the to earn their second competitive win in a row after the 4-1 thrashing at Liverpool a week ago. However, the defending English Champions sit 11th in the league table and there is a lot of catching to do with the league leaders Manchester City.

    Chelsea suffered their first Premier League defeat of the season and they were beaten 2-1 by Liverpool at home on Saturday. Antonio Conte’s men sit fifth in the league, 5 points below Manchester City. The Blues were held to a 2-2 draw in the previous week and there is plenty of concerns with a sloppy defense.

    Leicester City vs Chelsea: Head-to-Head Stats

    Leicester City defeated Chelsea 2-0 when they meet for the Premier League clash at the King Power Stadium last season. The win ended the Foxes’ terrible run of 8 consecutive losses against Chelsea in all competitions. The teams drew 1-1 at Stamford Bridge in the reverse leg on May 2016.

     

     

    Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri: "I am happy with our performance until 2-0. We started very well and we were in control of the match. Chelsea had more possession but we were very smart and clever to score twice.

    "The key was when we conceded a goal on the last corner of the half - we lost two dangerous men, Luiz and Cahill.

    "In extra time I said stay together and close the space, but Fabregas scored and it was very difficult for us."

    Chelsea boss Antonio Conte: "It's important when I call someone to play and they show me my choice is not wrong.

    "I am pleased for Cesc because he played a good game, he showed me great commitment in the training sessions. I am satisfied when I see this behaviour.

    "This is the right way and I want my players to create good competition and, game by game, give me the opportunity to choose the best line-up."
