Burnley vs Tottenham

Tottenham defender Eric Dier feels criticism of his performances ‘a bit unfair’

A fascinating clash at Turf Moor pits a Burnley side creeping back into form against a Spurs outfit struggling to find any consistency this season.

Sean Dyche's men are still winless but have at least climbed above Norwich and Newcastle at the foot of the Premier League after three draws in their last four games.

Last time out the Clarets drew 2-2 draw at Southampton, with Ivorian winger Maxwel Cornet scoring both goals to make it three in his last four starts, and Cornet looks set to be unleashed once again against a side he was heavily linked with a few years back.

Burnley's home form is a cause for concern as the hosts have not scored in their last two league outings at Turf Moor, but Spurs are not much better on the road, winning just one of their last seven games away from north London in all competitions.

Last time out Tottenham fell to a bitterly disappointing defeat at West Ham, a result made even worse by the fact Nuno Espirito Santo had essentially sacrificed their Europa Conference League match at Vitesse to keep his first teamers fresh.

We're expecting a far stronger team selection from Nuno at Turf Moor in a game that has assumed great importance for a manager starting to look nervously over his shoulder, and while a win would do wonders for Burnley's confidence you have to think Sean Dyche will have one eye on their home game against Brentford next weekend.

So we're backing Spurs to win in 90 minutes and reach the quarter-finals for the third time in four seasons.

Preston vs Liverpool

The Reds' 5-0 demolition of Man United last weekend was a superb statement victory but the Liverpool side that steps out at Deepdale will be a very different one from that memorable afternoon at Old Trafford.

However, if their 3-0 win at Norwich in the last round is anything to go by then Jurgen Klopp's men are worthy favourites against a Preston side lying 19th in the Championship.

Divock Origi and Takumi Minamoto were the match winners against the Canaries and both look set to start here alongside Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Konstantinos Tsimikas, the latter of whom would walk into most Premier League teams but is just a squad player for the Reds.

Curtis Jones should also get the chance to add to his growing reputation while exciting prospects Kaide Gordon and Conor Bradley may also get the opportunity to impress at Deepdale.

All of which adds up to a real headache for Lilywhites boss Frankie McAvoy, but one plus point is that his side have won four and drawn three of their last seven games on their own patch.

That's not to say we're ready to lump on Preston, but with 13 goals in eight home games and the pressure off against the Reds we reckon they can at least find the net, with Liverpool to win and both sides to score an acca-boosting addition.

Leicester City vs Brighton

Everything is rosier in the garden for Brendan Rodgers and his Leicester side as the Foxes' season finally seems to have taken off after three straight wins in all competitions.

And a visit from a bruised Brighton side trending in the wrong direction is an outstanding opportunity for the hosts to continue that run and advance to the quarter-finals.

Since beating Leicester at the Amex Stadium in September Graham Potter's men have drawn three and lost one of their Premier League outings, scoring just twice and looking a pale imitation of the side that briefly occupied fourth spot just a few weeks ago.

If their last EFL Cup match is anything to go by then it looks like Neal Maupay and Leandro Trossard may have the night off with next weekend's clash with Liverpool in mind, and while Jamie Vardy will be missing for the hosts, they have far more strength in depth.

Harvey Barnes, Ayoze Perez and Ademola Lookman should all add to their limited Premier League minutes in recent weeks, while in-form Patson Daka may also have earned a starting berth after a stunning four-goal performance in Warsaw and an assist against Brentford last time out.

It all means that the hosts look a cracking price to win in 90 minutes and are a worthy addition to our acca.

Stoke City vs Brentford

Brentford may have taken to life in the Premier League like a duck to water but we're about to find out if they can do it on a cold Wednesday evening in Stoke as they head north for a clash with the Potters.

The Bees look set to give this competition their full attention after reaching the semi-finals last year, and Brentford have shown in previous rounds that they have the strength in depth to cope with the usual EFL Cup squad rotation.

Marcus Forss is the competition's top scorer with five goals to his name already and he is no stranger to scoring at the bet365 Stadium either having notched two goals there last season, so he should be a more than able deputy if Ivan Toney drops to the bench.

The visitors have lost their last two, but those games were at home and on the road it has been a different story with Thomas Frank's side winning their last two on their travels.

Stoke are reeling after three straight defeats but only Bournemouth have defeated them on their own patch during a remarkable run of seven home wins out of nine in all competitions this season.

However, even a rotated Brentford line-up will represent a similar test to the Championship leaders, and with Stoke struggling and set to make changes themselves, we can't see anything other than an away win here.

Hibernian vs Celtic

The match of the night in the Scottish Premiership sees fourth play fifth as Hibernian host Celtic at Easter Road, but the two sides have been heading in opposite directions in the last few weeks.

Celtic have won four in a row in all competitions by an aggregate score of 8-1 and they have not conceded a goal in their last three games, while Hibs have lost three straight Premiership encounters and scored just one goal in the process.

Jack Ross' side have lost just one match at Easter Road all season but it was their previous one, a 3-0 reverse against Dundee United that does not bode well ahead of a visit from Celtic, who have won their last two away from home.

The Bhoys are also unbeaten in their last six games at Easter Road and we're backing that run to continue with a routine win which could take them into second place in the Premiership table.

Rangers vs Aberdeen

The Glasgow double should come in tomorrow as we reckon leaders Rangers will see off Aberdeen and earn a third home win in four league matches.

A 1-0 home victory over Hibernian last time out was as much-needed as it gets for the Dons, as Stephen Glass' side had lost five in a row prior to that match.

However, their away form still makes for grim reading as Aberdeen have lost four and drawn one of their last five Premiership games and currently lie a disappointing eighth in the table.

With Celtic's recent resurgence and Hearts and Dundee United also breathing down their necks, keeping their momentum going is vital for Steven Gerrard's men, and we reckon they will get it done with something to spare, with Rangers -1 our final acca selection.
