FA Cup 4th Round Acca Tip – 5th & 6th February

Our diversion into the lower leagues didn’t quite pan out as I’d hoped last week, but this week we do have some Premier League teams at least back in action, however it will be in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup as that is what we have in store this weekend.

However, the Premier League returns in midweek next week and we will be bringing you our usual set of tips for those games, which take place from Tuesday through to Thursday. So tune in for the EPL return on Tuesday too.

For this weekend though we have a somewhat unusual selection of FA Cup ties to work through, now what do I mean by that?

Well, usually at this point of the competition, we end up with a couple of the big teams in the Premier League being drawn together. However, while we do have some all Premier League ties, they don’t really involved any of the big teams and in fact may of those top teams all have very winnable home games against lower league opponents.

Man City face Fulham, Liverpool take on Cardiff, Chelsea face Plymouth, Man Utd take on Middlesbrough, West Ham are away to Kidderminster while Spurs face arguably the toughest task against Brighton at home.

What this means is that it is not the best set of games to try and find a combination of good value and some easy picks, so I may have to get a little creative here and venture into some of the games that don’t feature Premier League teams.

Anyway, let’s take a look at my tips for this weekend’s FA Cup ties.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 5th February

Peterborough v QPR – Away Win

The Posh come into this game in a terrible run of form with their sole win in the last six games a 2-1 win over Bristol Rovers in the FA Cup. In that time, they have conceded 15 goals in those six games, scoring just six. They lie 20th in the Championship whereas their opponents QPR have not lost in seven games, winning five of those encounters. They may be wary as they lost to Peterborough at London Road back in October, losing 2-1, but I think that they are a much improved team since then, as their 4th placed slot in the Championship shows, whereas Peterborough’s form has just tanked.  I can’t see there being too many goals in this game, but any that do go in will likely be for QPR.

Wolves v Norwich City – Home Win

Wolves come into this game on the back of a six game unbeaten run, in which they have won five of those matches. However, Norwich City winning their last two Premier League games has moved them out of the relegation zone and just three points behind Everton in the table. So this game is perhaps not quite the nailed on win that it would have been a couple of weeks ago. That said, I still do expect Wolves to win this game as I think even if they rest some players (not that they need to) they should still be too strong at home for this Norwich side to deal with. Adama Traore’s move will hurt them but in truth, he has not featured much this season and Wolves should be fine without him.

Tottenham v Brighton – Home Win

Tottenham were busy in the transfer market during the window, bringing in couple of players from Juventus and letting a trio of fringe players move out on loan. Brighton lost Dan Burns to Newcastle United, but the Seagulls have seen players move on several times and always had the ability to find a replacement. Graham Potter’s team have been superb this season in the EPL losing just four games but the cup is a different matter and I think Antonio Conte knows he needs to get the winning mentality installed at Spurs that he has managed to get at his other clubs. An FA Cup win would start that process nicely. This will be tight, but I am backing Spurs just to steal it.

Bet Analysis: Sunday 6th February

Nottingham Forest v Leicester City – Away Win

After beating Arsenal in the last round, Nottingham Forest won’t have any undue concerns facing East Midlands rivals Leicester at the City Ground. Forest lie 8th in the Championship table with a real eye on the playoffs and with three wins in their last four, they have been in good form. Leicester’s form has been a bit more erratic this season with some great wins and performances and some equally poor ones. However, as FA Cup holders, the Foxes know what to do to dig out a win here and I am backing them to do that with some key men back from the African Cup of Nations.
