Several Algerian footballers are set to take part in the third round of the English League Cup this week as the Carabao Cup returns to action in the UK. Not a single Algerian has been eliminated from the tournament so far.
On Tuesday, Riyad Mahrez will be looking to add to his two goals at the weekend when Man City travel to Oxford United. Wolves also host Rachid Ghezzal’s Leicester City in an all Premier League tie. Ghezzal scored for the Foxes in the previous round.
The following day, Nottingham Forest host Stoke City where Hilal Soudani and Adlene Guedioura will be looking to make in into the last 16. Said Benrahma is set for one of the biggest games of his career as Brentford meet Arsenal in a London derby.
Extra-time in the Carabao Cup has been scrapped, with games now going straight to penalties as part of new rules. Keep on top of Algerian footballers in England with DZ Football.
Manchester City were the winners of the trophy last season, lifting it at Wembley after beating Arsenal in the final. Teams often rotate their squads in these midweek competitions so we could see a lot of changes in the line-ups.
