Burnley vs Leicester City live: How to watch, stream link, odds, prediction

  Burnley vs Leicester City live: How to watch, stream link, odds, prediction Burnley needs attacking heroes to step up if it wants to pull out of the Premier League's bottom three with a win over Leicester City at Turf Moor.They’re also without Maxwel Cornet, who’s off at the Africa Cup of Nations, and Chris Wood, who looks destined for Newcastle United. Ashley Barnes is also out and when you’re thinking how welcome his return would be, you see the depth of worry at Turf Moor.

USMNT host El Salvador on Thursday in Columbus, Ohio (live, 7pm ET) as Gregg Berhalter’s side are huge favorites to move one step closer to qualification for the 2022 World Cup.

A big win is expected for the USMNT as they aim to set themselves up for a key qualifier at Canada. Anything less and there will be big questions asked of this young, talented squad.

The USMNT sit in second place in the table heading into the final six games of qualifying, as they have three games over the next week which will have a huge say in whether or not the finish in the top three of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying and qualify automatically for the World Cup in Qatar in December.

League Cup: Liverpool vs Arsenal open semifinal tie (prediction, odds, link)

  League Cup: Liverpool vs Arsenal open semifinal tie (prediction, odds, link) Last week's postponed League Cup first leg between Arsenal and Liverpool means the Reds and Gunners kick off their tie knowing who they'd meet in the final.Chelsea beat Tottenham 3-0 on aggregate to seal their spot in next month’s final at Wembley, and Thomas Tuchel’s latest bid for silverware will run up against Mikel Arteta or Jurgen Klopp.

With games against El Salvador, Canada and Honduras in this window, a nine point haul could be enough to seal their spot at their first World Cup since 2014. Anything less than that and it could be tough as they have Mexico, Panama and Costa Rica to play in their final three qualifiers in March. The USMNT have lost just once in 25 games (18-1-6) against El Salvador and have never lost in World Cup qualifying to La Selecta. Sergino Dest, Weston McKennie and Jordan Morris are all back in the mix in this MLS-heavy roster and Berhalter has so many options in midfield and attack. Perhaps he will rest a few stars ahead of the game at Canada? That could be risky as the U.S. drew 0-0 at El Salvador in the reverse game…

Speaking of El Salvador, they currently sit second from bottom in the table but they held the USMNT to a draw in San Salvador right at the start of qualifying and they’ve been so close to causing plenty of other upsets too. Seattle Sounders defender Alex Roldan (his brother Christian is on the USMNT roster) is a player to watch out for and El Salvador head coach Hugo Perez is well known to USMNT fans. Perez played 73 times for the Stars and Stripes from 1984 to 1994 and featured for the USMNT at the 1994 World Cup. He helped the USA qualify for the 1990 World Cup and was inducted into the U.S. Soccer Hall of Fame in 2008. Simply put, Perez was a superb central midfielder but now he’s focused on trying to keep his home country in with a chance of qualifying for the World Cup and upsetting the USMNT. Houston Dynamo midfielder Darwin Ceren, former Toronto center back Eriq Zavaleta and striker Nelson Bonilla are three other players to keep an eye on.

USMNT team news, injuries, lineup options

It looks like Matt Turner is set to start in goal for the USMNT as Zack Steffen has suffered a back injury and is yet to travel to Columbus for this qualifier. The back four will likely be Dest, Zimmerman, Miles Robinson and Antonee Robinson. Midfield will likely see Adams, McKennie and Musah link up in a three, while three from Aaronson, Pulisic, Pepi and Weah will start in attack.

El Salvador team news, injuries, lineup options

Hugo Perez will try to use very similar tactics to the home game against the USMNT and if it is level with 30 minutes to go, we will surely see El Salvador take plenty more risks this time. They need to win all three games in this cycle to give themselves a chance of finishing fourth and securing a playoff spot. They have only conceded 10 goals across their eight games so far, so La Selecta will be tough to break down and the USMNT have to be patient.
