Swansea City will be looking to put their Premier League woes behind them tonight, although things do not get tougher than facing Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side. The Swans are struggling domestically and have only won once all season in the League. The latest team news can be found by visiting the official Man City website here.
The pressure is really on manager Francesco Guidolin after a string of poor performances and although they are not expected to win tonight fans will be hopeful of an improved display. At the other end of the scale Manchester City are really setting a formidable pace and Guardiola’s side already look like potential Champions.
The Spaniard is sure to make the changes tonight but with a squad of so much quality its difficult to see past the Manchester City away win.
Tottenham will have been rocked this week with the news that Harry Kane is out for a lengthy period with ankle ligament trouble, picked up in the closing stages of their match with Sunderland on the weekend.
Spurs welcome former player Justin Edinburgh, who is currently boss at Gillingham. Once again, Mauricio Pochettino is likely to ring the changes, and could give a debut to 17 yrs wonder kid Marcus Edwards, who has been compared to the Lionel Messi, although this looks like a great opportunity for new signing Vincent Janssen to get amongst the goals.
West Ham will be looking for a boost in confidence as they face Accrington at their new London Stadium. There have been plenty of critics of the Hammers new home, including former player and manager Billy Bonds, and with results not going the way of the Hammers recently, a win tonight would definitely calm the nerves.
Accrington have already seen off Bradford and Premier League Burnley in the previous rounds, so will be relishing the challenge against Slaven Bilic’s side.
Elsewhere Sunderland face a tricky visit to London to take on QPR. Both sides are going through something of a sticky patch and the pressure is once again mounting on the Black Cats. What sort of side will David Moyes put out?
Southampton and Crystal Palace lock horns at St Marys Stadium and we could be set for a cracker. Charlie Austin has returned to his form of old, and with Crystal Palace finding their scoring touch there could be plenty of goals.
Manchester United will be looking to get back to winning ways as Jose Mourinho takes his side to lowly Northampton Town. Anything less than a comfortable win would be seen a disaster, and with United in a no win situation they will be looking for a smooth passage into the next round with a clean bill of health.
The third all Premier League tie sees high flying Hull travel to the Bet365 stadium to take on out of sorts Stoke. The Potters lost to Liverpool in last season’s semi-finals, going out on penalties and they would love to one better this season.
The night’s final game sees Championship rivals Fulham and Bristol City go head to head at Craven Cottage.
