Rotherham: Iversen; Olosunde, Ihiekwe, Wood, Robertson; Wiles, Barlaser, Crooks, Ladapo; Smith, Vassell
Sheffield Wednesday: Dawson; Iorfa, Thorniley, Bates, Fox, Murphy, Pelupessy, Luongo, Winnall, Rhodes, Nuhiu
Danny Drinkwater a notable inclusion in a much-changed Burnley lineup.
Burnley: Hart; Bardsley, Long, Gibson, Taylor; Lennon, Hendrick, Drinkwater, McNeil; Rodriguez, Vydra
Sunderland: Burge; McLaughlin, Flanagan, Baldwin, Hume; Dobson, McGeouch, O’Nien, Embleton; Gooch, Grigg
Eddie Howe had made nine changes to his team, including bringing in Irish youth internationals Gavin Kilkenny and goalkeeper Mark Travers. Full-back Jack Stacey also makes his first starting since joining this summer from Luton. Forest Green makes severn changes.
Bournemouth: Travers; Stacey, Mepham, Simpson, Rico; Wilson, Kilkenny, Surman, Ibe; Solanke, C Wilson
Forest Green: Wollacott; Bernard, Rawson, Grubb, Stevens, Morton, Dawson, McGinley, Kitching, Godwin-Malife, Mondal
Swansea have changed their entire starting lineup from their last Championship game.
Swansea City: Nordfeldt, Naughton (c), Cabango, Wilmot, John, Byers, Carroll, Garrick, Routledge, Peterson, Surridge.
Cambridge boss Colin Calderwood also shuffled his pack in the previous round and, like Cooper, he does the same again.
Sidibe, Delph, Iwobi and Kean all make their first starts for Everton. After making a big difference when they came on in the pitiful defeat to Aston Villa, Iwobi and Keane have a strong chance to stake a claim for regular action.
Lincoln: Smith; Lewis, Bolger, Shackell, Toffold; O’Connell, Morrell, Payne, Andersson, Andrade; Akinde
Everton: Pickford; Sidibe, Keane, Holgate, Digne; Schneiderlin, Delph; Richarlison, Sigurdsson, Iwobi; Kean
Newcastle v Leicester
The team news is starting to tumble in. First up, Brendan Rodgers wasn’t messing when he said he would take this tournament seriously: that’s a fine team he’s sending out at Newcastle, who’ve made seven alterations but look pretty strong themselves.
Newcastle: Darlow; Schär, Clark, Fernandez, Ritchie; Krafth, Shelvey, Willems Longstaff, Hayden; Ritchie; Muto
Leicester: Schmeichel; Pereira, Morgan, Soyuncu, Fuchs; Choudhury, Tielemans; Perez, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy
Just the seven ties to follow today but there’s no lack of intrigue in prospect. Lincoln City gave Everton a fright at Goodison Park in last season’s FA Cup so, despite an iffy run in League One, they’ll fancy their chances of toppling the Premier Leaguers at a sold-out Sincil Bank today. That would leave Marco Silva in a heap of bother after Everton’s unconvincing start to the season. And how about Forest Green at Bournemouth, or Sunderland at Burnley? Could Cambridge upset the odds at Swansea? Can Portsmouth do any better at QPR than they did in the FA Cup last season even though QPR are playing even better now?
And who will prevail in the Yorkshire derby between Rotherham and Sheffield Wednesday, who drew 2-2 in each of their meetings last season before Rotherham were relegated from the Championship? Meanwhile in today’s only all-Premier League encounter, Brendan Rodgers, who says he is trying to establish a winning culture at Leicester, will be hoping his team dispose of Newcastle, who could do Steve Bruce a power of good by following up their victory at Tottenham by winning at St James’ Park – but how many will be there to see it?
The answers to those and other questions are about to be revealed. Stay tuned!
