There’s an all-Premier League affair on Thursday when Sheffield United heads to Turf Moor to meet Burnley in a match where Chris Wilder and Sean Dyche may do a tactical “two Spidermen” meme.

Tuesday sees a London match-up of struggling West Ham and Championship side Charlton Athletic, while Newcastle is tested by Blackburn.

Wednesday’s highlights begin with League Two side Salford City, owned in part by Gary Neville, going up against his old club Everton. Also, newly-promoted Marcelo Bielsa and Leeds faces a Hull side that fell out of the Championship last season while Southampton and Brentford could really entertain at St. Mary’s.

Also Tuesday: Relegated side Bournemouth meets a former Premier League foe in Crystal Palace on Tuesday at the Vitality Stadium while Watford is off to Oxford United and Norwich City is already out of the competition after losing to Luton Town.
