Capital One Cup returns after a month and this time it is during the fourth round of the competition. Already few Premier League teams have been eliminated and more clubs from the top flight club competition in England could see their dream of lifting the Cup end during this midweek.
The 2015-16 season’s Capital One Cup has already seen Arsenal knock their arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur out of the competition. Mathieu Flamini was the star player for Arsene Wenger’s side during their victory at White Hart Lane last month.

Stoke City v Chelsea
The Premier League champions have continuously struggled this season and their misery continued when they lost 2-1 to West Ham United. Jose Mourinho’s future at Stamford Bridge is at risk and if the reports are to be believed, the clash against Stoke and Liverpool will decide his fate.
The Potters always play a physical game and it will be very difficult to beat them in their own backyard. Mark Hughes must be delighted to face the Blues during their struggling period and the result could go either ways on Tuesday evening.
Liverpool v Bournemouth
The clash between the two Premier League sides will be exciting one as the newcomers will take on Liverpool, who are breathing a fresh air under their new manager Jurgen Klopp. It will be the German manager’s third consecutive home match in all competitions.
The former Borussia Dortmund manager has now managed to win in all three matches he has managed as the Merseyside club settled for a 1-1 draw. A Capital One Cup tie against the Premier League outfit will be a perfect way to start his first win as Liverpool manager.
