Red card! Manchester City down to 10 menPremier League: Manchester City’s Joao Cancelo has been sent off for a foul on Harry Wilson that seems to have prevented a clear goalscoring opportunity without making an effort to play the ball. Fulham have a penalty.

Wolves v Brighton: Diego Costa is suspended for Wolves, which means a rare start for Hwang Hee-Chan. Matheus Nunes, who injured his shoulder against Brentford last weekend, is not in the Wolves matchday squad, while Adama Traore starts on the bench. Goncalo Guedes and Joao Moutinho start. Brighton are understandably unchanged from the side that hammered Chelsea last weekend.

Thomas Frank makes two changes to the side that drew with Wolves last time out. Keane Lewis-Potter and Mads Roerslev are in for Kristoffer Ajer and the suspended Ivan Toney.

Leeds v Bournemouth: Jesse Marsch has understandably resisted the urge to tinker with the side that beat Liverpool last weekend. Ryan Fredericks returns to Bournemouth’s starting line-up, with Jordan Zemura having to settle for a place on the subs’ bench.

They go second, three points behind the league leaders with a game in hand and a superior goal difference.

Manchester City v Fulham: Erling Haaland starts on the bench alongside Phil Foden, among others. In total, Pep Guardiola has made eight changes to the side that beat Seville on Wednesday. Only Ilkay Gundogan, Jack Grealish and Julian Alvarez remain in his starting line-up.

Aleksandar Mitrovic is not in Fulham’s matchday squad and is replaced by Carlos Vinicius. Harry Wilson is in for Neeskans Kebano, who suffered a long-term achilles injury in midweek. Kenny Tete comes in for Bobby Decordova-Reid, who is suspended.

From the halfway line!FA Cup: Connor Wickham closed out Forest Green’s win over South Shields with a Puskas Award contender from near the halfway line. Spotting the South Shields goalkeeper Myles Boney a few yards out of his goal, the well-travelled striker tried his luck and sent a sensational chip into the top corner, the only place the frantically back-pedalling Boney couldn’t reach it. It was Wickham’s second of the game and almost certainly the best goal he’s ever scored. Have that!

GOAL! Sheffield United 5-2 Burnley (McBurnie 74)Championship: Unbeaten in 16 games, Vincent Kompany’s side are currently getting monstered by Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. Oli McBurnie has just taken advantage of a catalogue of defensive errors to score his second of the game.

FA Cup first round: Northern Premier League side South Shields are out. Kevin Phillips’ side has lost 2-0 at League One side Forest Green.

GOAL! Sheffield United 4-2 Burnley (Ahmedhozdic 68)Championship: Anel Ahmedhozdic extends Sheffield United’s lead with his fourth goal of the season, reacting quickly to hook the ball home from the edge of the six-yard box after Burnley had failed to clear a corner properly.

GOAL! Sheffield United 3-2 Burnley (Robinson 65)Championship: It’s been quite the game of two halves for Jack Robinson, who was directly responsible for two Burnley goals in the first half, but has since atoned. After helping to set up Sheffield United’s second goal against the league leaders, he’s just scored their third. Burnley are serioously under the cosh and struggling to deal with United’s set pieces.

Yellow card watch: There are 11 Premier League footballers who are just one booking away from a Premier League suspension and also harbouring hopes of going to the World Cup.

Only a cynic would suggest that some of them might deliberately try to pick one up today or tomorrow in order to give themselves next weekend off and hugely reduce their chances of picking up an dream-ending injury ahead of Qatar, but for curiosity’s sake, they might be worth keeping an eye on.

Those to watch: Chris Mepham (Bournemouth), Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham), Alexis Mac Allister (Brighton), Amadou Onana (Everton), Diego Dalot (Manchester United), Thilo Kehrer (West Ham), Fabian Schar (Newcastle), Gabriel Jesus (Arsenal), William Saliba (Arsenal), Rodrigo Bentancur (Tottenham) and Harry Kane (Tottenham).

Earlier this afternoon, South Shields, managed by Kevin Phillips, kicked-off earlier against League One side Forest Green, who sit four divisions above the former Sunderland legend’s side.

Currently 17th in the Southern Premier Central, Alvechurch are the lowest ranked side left in the competition and face a trip to League One side Cheltenham Town, while Coalville Town, in fifth place in the same division as Coalville, head to The Valley to face Charlton Athletic.

Photograph: Will Matthews/PAChampionshipSheffield United and Burnley got the day’s Championship action early doors at a packed Bramall Lane. It’s currently 2-2 in a thriller, with Sheffield United coming from behind twice despite a first-half horror show from Jack Robinson.

Not content with turning a Manuel Benson cross into his own net with a bullet header, the Sheffield United defender subsequently dawdled on the ball just outside his own penalty area, allowing Benson to rob him of possession and fire past Wes Foderingham. Iliman Ndiaye scored for Sheffield United in the first half, while Robinson was instrumental in creating United’s second, which was just scored by Oli McBurnie.
