With Chelsea and Arsenal going out of the competition on Tuesday night The Capital One Cup has been typically unpredictable again this week.
This gives the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool a great incentive to march on to the quarter finals.
We look at the possible outcomes of the Wednesday fixtures.
Liverpool v Bournemouth 19:45
3 games for Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool manager and three draws so far. But there are signs of a style forming and Liverpool will surely be expected to see off struggling Bournemouth tonight.
Man City v Crystal Palace 19:45
Manchester City look like they mean business and, despite a tame draw at Old Trafford in the derby, we think that they are the best side in England right now.
Crystal Palace are playing well too and we wouldn’t completely rule out an upset.
But the safe money has to go on the home side.
Southampton v Aston Villa 19:45
Aston Villa have sacked their manager yet again as they fail to find the right formula at Villa Park.
You would hope for a rousing performance from them tonight but, again, the safe money is on the impressive home side.
Man Utd v Middlesbrough 20:00
Manchester United will be focusing on their next Premier League game but the raft of upsets in this competition may give United the feeling that they can cruise to the final with a decent draw.
We expect a another home win to make it 4 out of 4.
