Tough test for United at Old Trafford

Bet 1: Back BTTS in Man United v Derby @ 11/10 - KO 20:00 BST

Frank Lampard takes on his former boss at Old Trafford in the EFL Cup this evening and I am every confidence that his Derby side will be able to score at least once.

The Rams got back to winning ways on Saturday as they beat Brentford 3-1 and those three points put them back in the Play-off places.

United on the other hand were held to a 1-1 draw by Wolves, a result which ended a run of three straight wins in all competitions.

I fully expect Jose Mourinho to rotate his squad tonight given that they have a lunchtime kick off on Saturday, and with Derby playing some nice football under Lampard, they should get plenty of attacking opportunities.

Sociedad to seal the three points

Bet 2: Back Real Sociedad @ 6/10 - KO 20:00 BST

The hosts put two consecutive defeats behind them on Friday as they won 1-0 at Huesca, and given the difficult nature of their fixtures to date, seven points from their opening five games is more than respectable.

This is only their second appearance in front of their own fans this term, and the other one was against Barcelona. They will certainly fancy their chances this evening, as not only are they historically strong at home, they are also facing Rayo Vallecano.

The visitors are back in La Liga following their promotion last season, and they have lost three of their four matches. They too won 1-0 at Huesca recently, but they followed that up with a 5-1 defeat at home to Alaves at the weekend.

Fiorentina to continue their good start

Bet 3: Back The Draw in Inter v Fiorentina @ 14/5 - KO 20:00 BST

Inter followed up their 2-1 comeback win over Spurs in the Champions League by earning a really good 1-0 win at Sampdoria on Saturday. They hadn't made the strongest start to their season, but those two results have got them back on track.

Fiorentina are in third place and their only defeat this season came at Napoli - a narrow 1-0 loss. They thumped SPAL by a 3-0 scoreline at the weekend, and Stefano Pioli's men are looking like a formidable outfit at present.

There really isn't much to choose between this pair, and while Inter have home advantage, the visitors are playing well enough to get a draw.
