The other end of the spectrum sees clubs use the EFL Cup to field their youngsters and their are wary of getting to the latter rounds and seeing the fixtures pile up on their players. Still, nine of the last eleven EFL Cups have been won by a member of the current top four in the Premier League. That shows how seriously it can be taken.
