PL giants Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur both head away to fourth-tier opponents in Yeovil Town and Newport County respectively in the next few days, while Leicester City, West Ham and Swansea City will all look to avoid being kicked out of the competition by lower-tier opponents with tricky trips away from home lined up.

There are only three all-Premier League clashes with Chelsea and Newcastle clashing at Stamford Bridge, Southampton hosting Watford and Liverpool welcoming West Brom to Anfield.

Below is a look at the full schedule (all games kick off at 10 a.m. ET unless otherwise stated) as I make my score predictions for all 16 games.
