This Week's Sport

The sporting action comes thick and fast over the next week, with football, rugby league, cricket and snooker just some of the sports to get stuck into.

As always, there is plenty of horse racing to look forward to across the week and Cheltenham's November meeting, which runs from Friday 11th to Sunday 13th, is set to garner much attention. You can follow the action at Prestbury Park and across the UK and Ireland via bet365's Sports Live Streaming.

OddsBracknell Town 12/1, Draw 7/1, Ipswich 1/6

Bracknell Town and Ipswich contest the final first-round FA Cup tie on Monday at Bottom Meadow, with the home side winning their last four matches across all competitions and a 12/1 chance to extend that run to five. 

The Robins are unbeaten in their last 10 games - winning seven and drawing three - and you have to go back to August for the last time they suffered a home loss. 

Visitors Ipswich are second in League One and they have avoided defeat in their last three outings, beating Derby and Port Vale before drawing 4-4 at Charlton last time out. 

With the main focus being earning promotion to the Championship, the Tractor Boys could take their eye off the ball on Monday and Bracknell Town will be eager to take advantage of any lapse in concentration. 

Tuesday 8th November 

Football: All-Premier League tie in EFL Cup

WhatBournemouth v Everton
WhereVitality Stadium, Bournemouth
When19:45, Tuesday 8th November
OddsBournemouth 31/20, Draw 9/4, Everton 13/8

Bournemouth and Everton's main focus may be on the Premier League and ensuring their survival this season, but they will have to put thoughts of earning league wins aside when they clash in the third round of the EFL Cup on Tuesday. 

The Cherries have not gone past the third round since reaching the quarters in 2018/19, while Everton were knocked out at this stage of the competition last year when losing to Queens Park Rangers on penalties. 

Ironically, the two teams will also meet each other in the top flight on Saturday - the final game for both sides before the season breaks for World Cup 2022 in Qatar. 

Wednesday 9th November 

Cricket: Black Caps eye final

WhatNew Zealand v Pakistan

OddsNew Zealand 4/5, Pakistan 1/1

New Zealand topped Group 1 in the Super 12s to reach the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup and standing in their way of making a second final in a row is Pakistan, who made the last four despite losing their first two Super 12s matches. 

The Black Caps lost to Australia in the 2021 final, but they will be confident of going one better this time and lifting the trophy for the first time. Pakistan are always a threat but despite reaching the semi-finals, they have struggled to hit the same standards as New Zealand and an improved performance is required from Babar Azam’s troops.

The new PGA Tour season is in full swing and the next stop will be at Memorial Park Golf Course for the Houston Open, which was first held back in 1946. American Jason Kokrak claimed the spoils last year, finishing two strokes ahead of Scottie Scheffler and Kevin Tway, and you can keep up to speed with the action this year via the Live Golf Tracker. 

Cricket: England and India set for blockbuster affair 

England managed to book their place in the semi-finals with a final Super 12s win over Sri Lanka and they will face India next for a place in the final. Jos Buttler’s troops held their nerve to get the job done last time out and they will be hopeful of lifting the trophy for the first time since 2010. 

India are a force to be reckoned with in T20 cricket and they showed some superb hitting in the win over Zimbabwe on Sunday, with Suryakumar Yadav smashing an unbeaten 61 from just 25 balls.

Newcastle are enjoying a fantastic season and they will be hoping to chalk up another three points when they welcome Chelsea to St James' Park on Saturday. The Magpies have won their last three home matches - scoring 10 goals in the process - and they haven't tasted defeat in their own backyard since April. 

Eddie Howe's will be confident of getting the better of Chelsea, who suffered a 4-1 thumping at the hands of Brighton in their last away assignment. 

Elsewhere on Saturday, Manchester City welcome Brentford to the Etihad Stadium at 12:30, while the 15:00 contests will see Everton travel to Bournemouth, Liverpool host Southampton, Crystal Palace head to Nottingham Forest, Tottenham play host to Leeds and Leicester travel to the London Stadium to face West Ham. 

At 19:45, Wolverhampton, who recently confirmed the appointment of former Sevilla boss Julen Lopetegui, welcome high-flying Arsenal to Molineux. 

Snooker: Barbican prepares for green baize action 

The UK Championship 2022 runs from the 12th-20th November and Chinese star Zhao Xintong will be aiming to become the first player since Ronnie O'Sullivan in 2018 to successfully defend his crown. 

Zhao is 16/1 to go all the way for the second year in a row, while the Rocket is priced at 9/2 and last year's runner-up Luca Brecel is 40/1 to lift the trophy. 

Darts: Grand Slam begins in Wolverhampton 

The Grand Slam of Darts begins on Saturday 12th November at the Aldersley Leisure Village in Wolverhampton and defending champion Gerwyn Price will be looking to claim the spoils for the fourth time. 

Michael van Gerwen is also a three-time winner and he will be aiming to reach the final for the first time since 2017, while last year's runner-up, Peter Wright, is another to watch out for as he looks to go one better.

Manchester United's trip to Fulham on Sunday will be the final Premier League game before the domestic season takes a break for World Cup 2022 in Qatar. 

The Cottagers have been performing above expectations this season and they will need another solid display to get the better of the Red Devils, who have won on their last five visits to Craven Cottage. 

In the earlier kick-off at 14:00, Unai Emery takes charge of Aston Villa for the first time when his side travel to the Amex Stadium to take on Roberto De Zerbi's Brighton.
