Carabao Cup: Carragher predicts West Ham vs Arsenal, Man Utd vs Newcastle


Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has made some interesting predictions ahead of Wednesday’s Carabao Cup round of 16 fixtures involving Arsenal and Manchester United.

The two sides are considered favourites to win the competition, with Manchester City and Tottenham already eliminated.

Arsenal are away to West Ham on Wednesday night, while United welcome Newcastle United.

Carragher, speaking on the Gunners clash, said: “This one’s a big one. I think it’ll be a really tight game, and Arsenal will make a few changes.

“It depends on what teams get put out because I’m not sure the changes West Ham will make with them being in the Europa League as well, so I’m going to go for West Ham on penalties.”


On United versus Newcastle, he added: “I’m going to go for Manchester United. I know United have got a lot of injuries at the moment, but I think if they can get a few back for that, they’ve still got a deeper squad than Newcastle.

“I think both teams will make changes, but I think home advantage, and I think Manchester United will just get through. Prediction: Man Utd 1-0 Newcastle.”
