Watford have made a flying start to the new season and can build on their momentum in tonight’s Carabao Cup trip to Reading.
The EFL Cup gives Javi Gracia a chance to look at some of his fringe players and he will rest a number of the stars who have guided them to victories in their opening three top-flight games for the first time in the club’s history.
Reading are still to win in the Championship and, with Sheffield Wednesday visiting on Saturday, Paul Clement may have his eye on the weekend.
The Hornets could field the likes of Nathaniel Chalobah, Gerard Deulofeu and Stefano Okaka if they are deemed fit enough, and their quality should be enough to overhaul the Royals.
The City Ground plays host to what could be one of the ties of the round as Nottingham Forest welcome Newcastle.
Forest have had a makeover under Aitor Karanka this summer and this game could feature some of the club’s exciting youngsters who continue to push for a first-team spot.
Rafael Benitez is unlikely to see this competition as a priority and will also shuffle his pack.
This game promises goals and over 3.5 looks a very handy price.
