English Football League Cup quarterfinals took place yesterday but the results could shape the outcome of Premier League.
First the shocking result but deserving performance by championship side Brentford who beat Newcastle by a goal which was scored by Da Silva which would be blessing for Steve Bruce side now as they can focus on the Premier League.
On the other hand Mikel Arteta’s job is under more pressure when he got a masterclass by his master Pep Guardiola. Jose Mourinho had easy run by beating Stoke easily and have a great chance to go to final as they will face Brentford in semifinals where as Manchester City will face Manchester united again just like last year where Manchester United left it late to win against Everton.
This will change Premier League because club like Tottenham would now eye this silverware who have not won any cup since 2008. Jose would take this as a launch pad of silverware just like he did in Chelsea 2004 and 2015 and Manchester united in 2016.
Brentford 1(Dasilva 66) – 0 Newcastle
Arsenal (A. Lacazette 31) – 4 Man City (G. Jesus 3, R.Mahrez , P.Foden 59, A.Laporte 73)
Everton 0 – 2 Manchester United (E.Cavani 88, A. Martial 90+6)
Stoke 1 (J. Thompson 53) – 3 Tottenham (G. Bale 22, B.Davies 70, H.Kane 81)
