Paul Robinson is focusing on the Premier League, Copa del Rey and FA Cup tonight, and his Daily Acca pays around the 9/1 mark. Here are his selections:

- Back BTTS in Everton v Man City @ 9/10
- Back Barcelona @ 3/4
- Back West Brom @ 21/10

The Acca pays approximately 9/1

City's defence to be breached again

Bet 1: Back BTTS in Everton v Man City @ 9/10 - KO 19:45 GMT

Manchester City can go top of the Premier League with a victory at Goodison Park this evening, and while they may well achieve it, I very much doubt that they will be able to keep a clean sheet.

Pep Guardiola's side definitely have a defensive deficiency, and that was highlighted in their most recent away match at St James' Park, where they lost 2-1. They conceded again against Arsenal on Sunday in a 3-1 win, and I wouldn't be trusting them to keep a clean sheet at Everton.

The Toffees are of course struggling, and they fell to a 3-1 loss at home to Wolves on Saturday. Marco Silva is a manager under pressure, so he will be desperate for a result tonight - even if it means that it will help Liverpool.

The hosts have netted in all but one of their home outings this term, and they should be able to get on the scoresheet here.

Barca to win El Clasico

Bet 2: Back Barcelona @ 3/4 - KO 20:00 GMT

Into the Copa del Rey now and it's Barcelona versus Real Madrid in the first leg of their semi-final at the Nou Camp and I'm very keen on the hosts building a lead to take to the Bernabeu.

It has been far from a vintage year for Real Madrid to date and the La Liga title has long gone for them. They are through to the last 16 of the Champions League, but they would need to improve dramatically to retain their crown.

It has to be noted that Santiago Solari's men have won their last five games, but this is a different test entirely, and they haven't been overly impressive.

Barca were held here by Valencia at the weekend, but prior to that they had won five on the bounce in front of their own fans, and they will be well up for this fixture.

Baggies to down the Seagulls

Bet 3: Back West Brom @ 21/10 - KO 20:05 GMT

We conclude in the FA Cup for the replay between West Brom and Brighton at the Hawthorns, and it's the Baggies that feel like a bit of value to me.

I actually wouldn't have much difference between these two teams generally, which was evidenced by their 0-0 draw at the Amex in the original match.

The pair of them have endured some disappointing results since - West Brom losing to Middlesbrough and Brighton taking just one point from games against Fulham and Watford.

Chris Hughton's side aren't great travellers and I wouldn't trust them to perform in the Black Country this evening. I definitely favour the hosts, and 21/10 for them to win inside of 90 minutes is a good bet.
