And looking further down the English football pyramid it looks like being a tough punting weekend, so much so I've even taken a trip over to France (not literally, sadly) to pick out Nice as hopeful home bankers.
Before I watched the Carabao Cup semi-final with Arsenal I would have said Chelsea would win this 3-0, but I'm not so sure now.
