Call me mad but I wouldn't write us off in the Carabao cup just yet, if we really do get our act together during this break and if Koeman gets a game plan together (that's the biggest if) then we could nick it. Morata and Kante both out, they play Roma away 6 days later after a Saturday game in the PL, Conte will certainly prioritise the PL and CL over the Caraboa Cup and might not risk Batushey picking up a knock, probably wishful thinking but we can but hope.
Their second string have more fire in their belly than our first team. Sad but true. They will be first to every 50/50, they'll know what to do with the ball when they get it and they'll actually try and score a goal instead of playing a safe ball.
