What will happen in this one though? Cast your vote so we know if you think it’ll be all smiles or disappointment when this tie is done.

Arsenal, Bournemouth, Crystal Palace, Leicester, Manchester City would be favourites to advance as Premier League sides against Championship opposition in the form of Norwich, Middlesbrough, Bristol City, Leeds and Wolves, respectively. However, given Palace’s struggles the Robins could quite conceivably be favourites at Ashton Gate.

All-Premier League encounters will see Swansea host Manchester United, on Tuesday, and Wednesday’s meetings between Chelsea and Everton – who sacked Ronald Koeman on Monday – and Tottenham welcoming West Ham to Wembley.
