February Preview

Take a look at our top Xclusive Event for February.


Our Xclusive pick for February is the EFL Cup Final fixture between Southampton and Manchester United. Fans of both teams will descend onto Wembley Stadium once again as the country's national stadium gets ready to play host to the final game of the 2016-17 EFL Cup.

Southampton booked their place in the final with a 2-0 aggregate win over Liverpool in the semi-final, thanks to goals from Nathan Redmond in the first leg  and Shane Long in the second leg at Anfield. Claude Puels' men go into the final with the best defensive record after keeping clean sheets in all five games played in this seasons competition. Southampton have the chance to win only the second major title of their 131-year history, and will be looking for a repeat of the 1976 FA Cup Final when they beat Manchester United 1-0.

Meanwhile, Manchester United go into the game off the back of a 3-2 aggregate victory over Hull in the semi-final. A convincing 2-0 victory at Old Trafford, followed by a narrow 2-1 defeat at the KCOM Stadium, saw José Mourinho's men reach the final for the first time since their 2010 victory over Aston Villa. Manchester United are bidding for their fifth League Cup title, after successfully winning the competition in 1992, 2006, 2009 & 2010.

The team victorious will receive an entry into the third qualifying round of the 2017-18 UEFA Europa League as well as £100,000 prize money, with the runner-up taking home £50,000.
