While the Champions League last-16 continues on Wednesday night, there is also English top-flight action to focus on with two rescheduled matches during this most hectic of seasons.

We began at Turf Moor, where relegation battlers Fulham threw away a second-half lead in their 10th draw of the season against Burnley.

Ola Aina gave the visitors the lead shortly after interval, but Burnley hit back swiftly through Ashley Barnes to leave Scott Parker’s side still six points adrift of safety with a tough run of fixtures coming up.

The main event of the evening comes at Goodison Park, where dominant Manchester City will be gunning for a record-extending 17th successive win across all competitions against Everton.
