Five first goal scorers you should back in the EFL Cup fourth round

The EFL Cup provides clubs who are seemingly uninterested in winning silverware the chance to give fringe players and youngsters the chance to taste a bit of first team football.

For years this competition has been an afterthought for fans and clubs alike, despite there being a number of reasons why winning it isn’t as embarrassing as many will have you believe.

One of those reasons is that it can give clubs the chance to secure silverware midway through the season, which then gives them more of a chance to concentrate on their league or European commitments, which you don’t necessarily get if you’re trying to win the FA Cup.

The FA Cup is the more superior competition but it’s much harder to win and the business end of the FA Cup coincides with the business end of other important competitions. Why don’t clubs ever see it that way?

But regardless of that very obvious reality, several clubs are still expected to rest key players in this week’s EFL Cup fourth round.

This means picking a first goalscorer to lump on with Winner Sports is a much harder task, but we’re going to have a go anyway.
