LUFC Warnock predicting good cup tie

LUFC Warnock predicting good cup tie

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock is predicting a good game when Everton visit Elland Road this evening in the Capital One League cup.

Everton have started the Premier League season in fine form and they are currently in third place. They have lost just one of their opening five games and have already beaten Manchester United.

Speaking ahead of the game at the pre-match press conference, Warnock said, "It sounds a fabulous tie. I wasn`t surprised that it was picked for the TV. I think the players they have now and the atmosphere at Elland Road, it all points to a great game for the TV.

"They are quite capable of inflicting a heavy defeat on us but at the same time we are quite capable of beating them."


The game sees two teams who have a long history of games against each other meeting for the first time since the 2003/04 season.

Leeds have a great home record against Everton, losing just five of the previous 57 meetings.

Everton do go into this game as firm favourites for the tie having made a good start to the season whilst Warnock`s squad has already been beset by injuries.

Warnock has a good history in the competition and he led one of his former clubs Sheffield United to the semi-finals in the 2002/03 season, where they went out in extra time over two legs to Liverpool.

The Leeds boss wants his current crop of players to go out and enjoy the game as all the pressure is on the visitors. "There is no pressure on us and we can go out and enjoy it." added Warnock.

Leeds will be looking to reach round four for the first time since the 2008/09 season, where they eventually went out at Derby County.

The tie at Derby County in 2008 is the only time Leeds have reached the fourth round in the past ten seasons.

The only time they have got past the fourth round in the past twenty seasons is when they reached the final in 1996.

Leeds won the competition in 1968 and are one of only twenty-two sides to win the competition since it was first played in the 1960/61 season.

Surprisingly, Everton have never won the competition in their long history.

They have twice been beaten finalists with both games going to a replay in the days before penalties decided the winners.

They lost to Aston Villa in 1977 in a replay at Old Trafford 3-2 and seven years later, they lost 1-0 to Liverpool in a replay at Maine Road.

Everton are one of only three teams to have appeared in two finals without winning the competition, with West Ham United and Bolton Wanderers also losing two finals.
