EFL Cup accumulator tips: Predictions, kick-off times & how to watch

The EFL Cup has reached the quarter-final stage with two non-Premier League sides still involved.

There are three all-Premier League ties including a fascinating fixture at Stamford Bridge between Chelsea and Newcastle.

Port Vale of League One have reached the final eight for the first time in their history and will strive to go a step further when taking on Championship side Middlesbrough in the Potteries.

There are three EFL Cup fixtures on Tuesday and we have come up with a treble which pays more than 11/2.

EFL Cup Tuesday treble:

Everton to beat Fulham @ 1/1
Middlesbrough to beat Port Vale @ 17/20
Chelsea to beat Newcastle @ 4/5

Treble pays 11/2

Everton v Fulham Information

  • Where is Everton v Fulham? Goodison Park, Liverpool
  • When is Everton v Fulham? 19:45, Tuesday 19th December
  • What are the odds for Everton v Fulham? Everton 1/1, Draw 11/4, Fulham 13/5

Everton v Fulham prediction

Everton to beat Fulham - 1/1

Everton have won four of five matches since news broke of their 10-point Premier League deduction and they look solid favourites to advance to the EFL Cup semi-finals with a home win over Fulham.

Without the points deduction, Everton would be sitting in the Premier League's top half. They have reeled off four successive December victories, including Saturday's impressive 2-0 success at Burnley when they shrugged off the absences of suspended duo Idrissa Gueye and Jarrad Branthwaite.

Both are available to take on the Cottagers, who were brought back down to earth at the weekend after their 3-0 loss at Newcastle.

Marco Silva's side have not won away to Premier League opposition since a 1-0 victory over Everton on the opening weekend of the season.

Fulham must return to Goodison Park without suspended striker Raul Jimenez and they are unlikely to achieve a similar result.

Port Vale v Middlesbrough Information

  • Where is Port Vale v Middlesbrough? Vale Park, Burslem
  • When is Port Vale v Middlesbrough? 19:45, Tuesday 19th December
  • What are the odds for Port Vale v Middlesbrough? Port Vale 14/5, Draw 3/1, Middlesbrough 17/20

Port Vale v Middlesbrough prediction

Middlesbrough to beat Port Vale - 17/20

Middlesbrough have not contested the EFL Cup final since a team featuring Juninho, Gareth Southgate and Gaizka Mendieta triumphed 2-1 over Bolton in the 2004 showpiece.

They are on the glory trail once again and can advance to the semi-finals by defeating Port Vale at Vale Park.

Michael Carrick’s side are 13th in the Championship, which constitutes a reasonable recovery considering they were rock-bottom after seven games.

They have reached this stage without having to play a top-flight side and must fancy their chances against Vale, who are 15th in League One.

Vale have won their last two league fixtures but they have not had to face any higher division opponents in the EFL Cup and the step up in class may find them out.

Chelsea v Newcastle Information

  • Where is Chelsea v Newcastle? Stamford Bridge, London
  • When is Chelsea v Newcastle? 20:00, Tuesday 19th December
  • Where can I watch Chelsea v Newcastle? Sky Sports Football and Sky Sports Main Event
  • What are the odds for Chelsea v Newcastle? Chelsea 4/5, Draw 3/1, Newcastle 3/1

Chelsea v Newcastle prediction

Chelsea to beat Newcastle - 4/5

Chelsea have had a tough 18 months in the Premier League but they are five-times EFL Cup winners and can advance a step further by defeating Newcastle at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues were 1-0 winners at home to Brighton in the third round and can raise their game against another team which sits above them in the table.

Newcastle have already accounted for Manchester City and Manchester United but they are going through an injury crisis and are approaching the quarter-finals without at least 10 senior players.

Eddie Howe's side have tasted defeat in four of their last five away games and given their demanding schedule, they may struggle to cope in the capital.

EFL Cup Tuesday treble:

Everton to beat Fulham @ 1/1
Middlesbrough to beat Port Vale @ 17/20
Chelsea to beat Newcastle @ 4/5

Treble pays 11/2
