QPR vs. Everton (Tuesday, 7.45pm)
Two sides seeking to bounce back from disappointing league defeats at the weekend prepare for battle in round three of the EFL Cup as Queens Park Rangers welcome Everton to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium on Tuesday night.
Mark Warburton's men went down 2-1 to Bristol City at the weekend, whereas the Toffees suffered their first defeat of the Rafael Benitez era in humbling fashion at Aston Villa.
We say: Queens Park Rangers 2-3 Everton
Everton have certainly lost some bite on the attacking front - although Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin would most likely have been rested anyway - and QPR need no lessons of their own in finding the back of the net.
With both sides seeking to give their fans something to cheer after disappointing weekend results, an entertaining affair could be in store, and we are backing the Toffees to come out on top in a game where the goals ought to be flowing in.
Preston vs. Cheltenham (Tuesday, 7.45pm)
The Robins have defeated Bristol Rovers and Gillingham to reach this stage, while Preston have so far seen off Mansfield Town and Morecambe.
We say: Preston North End 2-0 Cheltenham Town
Cheltenham have hit a good patch of form thanks to a couple of wins on the spin, but this trip to Deepdale is a far bigger challenge than what they have faced so far in the cup.
Preston may well name a strong side on the back of three straight league draws and we are backing them to come out on top in this first ever encounter between the teams.
Fulham vs. Leeds (Tuesday, 7.45pm)
The visitors are still waiting for their first win of the 2021-22 Premier League season, but Fulham are second in the Championship table, having picked up 16 points from their opening eight fixtures.
We say: Fulham 1-2 Leeds United
Leeds are still waiting for their first league win of the season, but they were impressive in the previous round against Crewe, and we fancy the Whites to emerge victorious on Tuesday evening, with Bielsa expected to name a stronger lineup than Silva.
Brentford vs. Oldham (Tuesday, 7.45pm)
While all is well at the Bees, Oldham make the trip to the capital currently sitting at the bottom of the League Two standings.
We say: Brentford 3-0 Oldham Athletic
Even with Brentford making widespread changes, this will likely prove to be a long evening for the visitors. While Oldham may threaten in short bursts, we expect the Bees to cruise to victory and keep a clean sheet in the process.
Watford vs. Stoke (Tuesday, 7.45pm)
While the Hornets currently occupy a spot in mid-table, the Potters sit in fifth position in the Championship standings.
We say: Watford 2-1 Stoke City
With both teams making an array of alterations, this is a difficult match to predict. No-one would be surprised with a penalty shootout, but we are going to back the Hornets to prevail by the odd goal in three.
Wigan vs. Sunderland (Tuesday, 7.45pm)
Wigan will enter the contest off the back of an impressive 4-1 victory at Accrington Stanley in the league on Saturday, while Sunderland played out a 2-2 draw with Fleetwood Town on the same afternoon.
We say: Wigan Athletic 2-1 Sunderland
This is an incredibly difficult game to call, as both managers will make a number of changes to their strongest starting teams. Wigan's XI might just be a little bit stronger, though, and we are tipping the home side to edge what should be a very close contest at the DW Stadium.
Norwich vs. Liverpool (Tuesday, 7.45pm)
We say: Norwich City 1-3 Liverpool
A raft of expected changes from Liverpool may have Norwich feeling optimistic about their prospects of a giant killing, but the confidence levels in the two camps could not be more contrasting.
Klopp may have been dealt further blows with absentees at a less-than-ideal time, but we still expect a second-string Liverpool XI to book their spot in round four with minimal difficulty.
Burnley vs. Rochdale (Tuesday, 7.45pm)
The home side will enter the contest off the back of a 1-0 loss to Arsenal in the Premier League on Saturday, while Rochdale played out a 1-1 draw with Mansfield Town in League Two on the same afternoon.
We say: Burnley 2-0 Rochdale
Burnley have found it difficult to pick up results in the Premier League this season, but the Clarets should have too much for Rochdale on Tuesday, and we are expecting the hosts to progress without any real drama.
Sheff Utd vs. Southampton (Tuesday, 7.45pm)
Meanwhile, Slavisa Jokanovic's Blades overcame Carlisle United before dumping Derby County out of the tournament to book their place in this stage.
We say: Sheffield United 0-1 Southampton
In spite of their winless start to the new Premier League season, Southampton have certainly posted some respectable results, although they are highly unlikely to have as much luck in front of goal as they did against Newport here.
Sheffield United are not to be taken lightly as they begin to gather momentum under Jokanovic, but as heavy rotation on both ends takes effect, we expect Southampton's winning streak against the Blades to continue with a narrow success en route to round four.
Man City vs. Wycombe (Tuesday, 7.45pm)
Manchester City will be bidding to become the most successful team in the history of the League Cup this season, and the Citizens will start their 2021-22 journey at home to Wycombe Wanderers on Tuesday night.
Pep Guardiola's side have won this competition on eight occasions - level with Premier League rivals Liverpool - while they have lifted the trophy in each of the last four campaigns.
We say: Manchester City 2-0 Wycombe Wanderers
Guardiola is expected to make a number of changes for the clash with Wycombe, who will be looking to record one of the biggest shocks in the history of the competition. Saturday's draw with Southampton should mean that the home side are fired-up, though, and we cannot see anything other than a routine success for the Citizens.
