FA Cup 4th Round Acca – 28th & 29th January

We’re back this weekend with the next set of matches from the FA Cup and we are now at the Fourth Round of the competition.

We have already seen a number of big Premier League sides exit the competition. Chelsea, who have reached five of the last six finals, have gone as have Newcastle United, Brentford, Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, Nottingham Forest, Wolves, Bournemouth and Everton.

In fact, I can’t remember a third round where almost half of the Premier League teams competing were eliminated, all of which gives the fourth round of the competition a somewhat more unusual look.

The big game comes on Friday night as Arsenal head north to take on Manchester City at the Etihad, but we’re focusing on the games on Saturday and Sunday this week, the most intriguing of which could be Liverpool’s swift return to the AMEX Stadium to face Brighton, who beat them 3-0 in the EPL just a couple of weeks back.

However, we have also got some intriguing matches involving teams outside of the Premier League and I think that a couple of these games in particular are offering some great value odds, which is why I have incorporated them into this week’s set of four tips for my acca.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 28th January

Blackburn Rovers v Birmingham City – Home Win

These two Championship sides have a great chance to reach the last 16 of this tournament and with home advantage and better form over the course of the season, I am tipping Blackburn to come through here. Rovers lie fourth in the Championship compared to Birmingham’s 19th place, but the intriguing thing here is that Rovers have lost 13 of their 28 games so far this season, one more than Birmingham. Rovers have some quality players in the shape of Ben Brereton-Diaz, Bradley Dack and Tyler Morton which I feel just about gives them the edge over a Birmingham City side who have lost all their last five in the Championship. I can’t see it being an easy win for the home side but I do feel they’ll do enough to progress.

Fulham v Sunderland – Home Win

Fulham have enjoyed a superb season back in the Premier League and sit comfortably in the top half of the table ahead of teams like Liverpool and Chelsea. They face another newly promoted side that is doing well in the new division, with 9th place in the Championship Sunderland. The Black Cats are still very much in the race for promotion back to the Premier League. Sunderland have lost just one of their last seven games in all competitions, so this will be no pushover game for Fulham but I think the extra quality that the London side have, especially in attack means that they should be very confident of moving on into the fifth round of the competition here.

Ipswich Town v Burnley – Away Win

After a few seasons in the doldrums, Ipswich Town are finally starting to fight back and currently find themselves third in the League One table, although they have only won one of their last five games. They face a Burnley side who are top of the Championship and who progressed thanks to a superb 4-2 away victory over Premier League Bournemouth in the last round. Vincent Kompany has got Burnley heading very much in the right direction and while he would like his team to go on a big FA Cup run, I think regaining their Premier League status is still foremost in their minds. That said, I still feel that Burnley are more than capable of picking up another win on the road here.

Bet Analysis: Sunday 29th January

Brighton v Liverpool – Away Win

After a 3-0 drubbing a few weeks ago in this very fixture, Jurgen Klopp came out and apologised for his team’s listless display. I think it is fair to say that the Reds will be out for some kind of redemption here, especially in a competition that is now very important to them, especially as they lie in 9th place in the EPL at the moment. Brighton will take great confidence from that win over Liverpool and the fact that they have only lost one of the last six games against the Reds and the Seagulls are also in excellent form of late too. Most things do seem to point to Brighton at least getting the draw if not the win, but I have a feeling that in this game, Jurgen Klopp is going to want to prove a point and I think he names a strong team here and Liverpool redeem themselves with a narrow but important win on the south coast.
