The last time that these two clubs met was back in September 2009, when Liverpool won 1-0 at Elland Road in this very competition courtesy of a David Ngog goal.

And as you would expect, the Reds are strong favourites here – at best odds of 6/19 with Unibet, while Leeds are available at 11/1 and the draw at 5/1, both with Betfair.

Liverpool have lifted this trophy eight times, three more than any other club, and they also reached the final last season, going down on penalties to Manchester City.

But Leeds are on a good run of form with 3 consecutive away wins, and we feel that they’re worthy of a bet on the Asian Handicap with a 2 goal start at 3/5 with Unibet.

With this bet you only lose if Liverpool win by 3 clear goals and they’ve won none of their last 22 League Cup games at Anfield by that margin (inc. 9 lower division sides).

With Liverpool’s Brazilian pair of Coutinho and Firmino injured, we also recommend backing Under 2.5 Goals at 6/4 and Under 3.5 Goals at 8/13 – both with Stan James.

The absence of the Brazilians also gives Divock Origi a further opportunity to shine following his goal against Sunderland on Saturday – back him to score first at 15/4.

Finally, Sky Bet offer Price Boosts on Liverpool to win 2-0, enhanced from 11/2 to 7/1, and on Leeds’ top scorer Chris Wood to score first – enhanced from 9/1 to 12/1.
