Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
Everton play host to Salford in the opening match of their Carabao Cup campaign. The Toffees made a promising start to the season as they defeated Tottenham 1-0 on the road, but they do not want to stop now. Even though Carlo Ancelotti is likely to mix the squad for the EFL Cup clash, we believe that the Premier League side will advance to round 4 without any difficulties.
Salford, on the other hand, played out a 2-2 draw with Exeter in the opening match of their League Two campaign. The Lions have been struggling at the back of late, and seeing that they suffered an embarrassing 6-0 loss to Man Utd U21 in the EFL Trophy, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. The two teams meet for the first time ever in the Carabao Cup.
