Here, SunSport previews tonight’s second-round clashes involving top-flight clubs are most at risk of crashing out.
Stoke vs Huddersfield
Bookies rate struggling Huddersfield as the most likely Prem side to crash out with Stoke 7-5 with Betfair.
Spokesperson Katie Baylis said: “Huddersfield are likely to make changes, considering Premier League survival is their main objective and while Stoke’s league form has been mixed, they are always a tough prospect at home.
“So the Potters, at 7/5 for the win, seem the most likely of any of the non PL teams to knock out a top flight side.”
The Terriers have conceded nine goals in three matches, scoring just once.
Relegated Stoke are not likely to pose the same problems as Manchester City and Chelsea but are a good shout at home.
