All four teams are expected to rest key players, which could open the door for Leicester and West Ham to make the semifinals.

City last won the League Cup in the 2015-16 season, beating Liverpool on penalty kicks in the final, but this trophy is unlikely to be high on Pep Guardiola‘s wish list with Premier League and UEFA Champions League domination front and center.

Arsenal’s policy of playing their youngsters saw them reach the quarterfinal stage last season where they were dumped out of the competition by Southampton, a side then managed by Leicester boss Claude Puel. The Frenchman took Saints to the final last season and will fancy his chances of repeating that feat with his in-form Leicester side.

The Foxes won the trophy in 1997 and 2000, while West Ham have never won the competition and Arsenal last won this trophy in 1993.
