Manchester City are 9/2 (5.50) favourites to retain their EFL Cup crown ahead of this season’s competition kicking off on Tuesday night.
The Citizens beat Arsenal 3-0 in February to lift the three-handled trophy for the fifth time in their history and, given how dominant Pep Guardiola’s side were last term, it is no surprise they are bet365’s market principals here.
No side has won the trophy in consecutive seasons since Manchester United back in 2010, and City may prioritise the Premier League and the Champions League over the EFL Cup but have a formidable squad.
Anyone looking to back City to win all three domestic competitions plus the Champions League can do so at 100/1 (101.0) with bet365. This selection is available in the outright area of the Soccer menu under Team Outright Wins.
The Reds are yet to win silverware under Jurgen Klopp and lost the 2016 final to City, which should make them hungry for success especially if their highly-anticipated title challenge fails to materialise.
Chelsea and Tottenham can be found at 8/1 (9.0) in bet365’s market, with Spurs searching for their first EFL Cup in over a decade.
Arsenal are priced at 9/1 (10.0) to win the trophy in Unai Emery’s first season in charge, before the prices jump up as the market heads outside of the top six.
Cardiff City reached the final in 2012 before losing on penalties to Liverpool and can be backed at 80/1 (81.0) to go one step further this time, whilst fellow Welsh outfit and 2013 winners Swansea are 100/1 (101.0).
