Chelsea 6/1 (7.0) to beat Leicester City (was 6/5)

Antonio Conte suffered his first competitive defeat as Chelsea boss when the Blues went down 2-1 to Liverpool on Friday night.

The London club have a chance to bounce back to winning ways when they visit the King Power though and punters are getting stuck into odds-against quotes on the visitors.

Claudio Ranieri has suggested wholesale changes are likely for the Foxes after a hectic early schedule and the hosts could field a significantly weakened line-up at the King Power Stadium as many, if not all of the usual starting XI, given the evening off.

With no European commitment Chelsea are likely to take the domestic cup competitions much more seriously and the chance to back them at 6/1 (7.0) will surely appeal given the team who beat Bristol Rovers in the last round included Michy Batshuayi, Cesc Fabregas and Gary Cahill.

Liverpool 4/1 to beat Derby County (was 2/5)

Jurgen Klopp's men have showed no sign of slowing down since their shock defeat at Burnley, the Reds have since negotiated every obstacle in their way and in some style, too.

Having beaten Leicester City, Chelsea and Arsenal already in the Premier League, the visitors should have few problems securing victory at the iPro Stadium and justifying their usual odds of 2/5 (1.40)let alone the 4/1 (5.0) on offer here.

With Derby scoring only twice in eight Championship games thus far, the Rams will surely struggle against even a rotated Liverpool line-up.

Klopp named an extremely strong team for the 5-0 win over Burton Albion - who have since beaten Derby - in the last round. Given that the visitors reached two cup finals last season, the former Borussia Dortmund boss could well be targeting another serious cup tilt to supplement their Premier League campaign.
