|Romelu Lukaku (ew)||First Goalscorer||7/1||Sky Bet|
|Sergio Aguero (ew)||First Goalscorer||3/1||Paddy Power|
|Man City 2-1||Correct Score||8/1||BetVictor|
|Everton 2-1||Correct Score||20/1||Coral|
Everton take a one goal lead (2-1) from the first leg to the Etihad, but arrive in poor form having won just one of their last ten league games (D6, L3).
However, all three of those defeats were at home and their only away defeat this season was at Arsenal, while they’ve also won three away games in this competition.
As well as beating City 2-1 in the first leg, they also drew 0-0 here recently in the league and they are a tempting 5/4 with Coral to qualify for the final at Wembley.
City drew 2-2 at West Ham on Sunday, once again demonstrating defensive fragility without injured captain Vincent Kompany. We can certainly see Everton scoring on Wednesday and Romelu Lukaku appeals each-way at 7/1 with Sky Bet to score first.
The Belgian has scored four goals in five Capital One Cup appearances this season.
But we also want to be with Sergio Aguero in this market – he has scored a brace in consecutive games for City and is 14/5 with William Hill to score two or more goals.
