FA Cup 5th Round Midweek Acca Tip – 9th – 11th February

Before we get on to the next set of tips, please accept my apologies in advance for the next few sets of tips. Due to a few changes, I am having to get these tips ready well in advance of when I usually would, which means that I won’t have up to the minute data available for some tips.

That’s not an issue in cup games, such as this set of FA Cup tips or when the Champions and Europa Leagues resume next week, but may mean that some of the data I refer to for Premier League tips may be a game out of date. So I apologise for that in advance.

It will only be an issue for the next week or so and things should be back to normal from the 22nd February if not before!

What we have here is a rare midweek set of FA Cup games from the Fifth Round of the tournament. In a normal season, these games are played over a weekend but the shortened EPL season means that this set of games is now a midweek fixture from Tuesday to Thursday this week.

Remember, while games can still end in a draw, extra time and penalties will be used to decide the winner with no replays in the competition this year (and in truth, I would not be surprised to see this continue in future years). As such, the onus is on teams to get the win, otherwise risk the lottery of penalties and I think that has given us some very entertaining games in this competition so far.

We’ve got some cracking games this week in the FA Cup including Manchester United v West Ham, Everton v Tottenham and Wolves v Southampton in three all-Premier League clashes. There are some interesting matches for EPL teams against lower league opponents too, some of which could produce a surprise or two.

Anyway, let’s take a look at the four games I’ve selected for my FA Cup Acca this week.

Bet Analysis: Tuesday 9th February

Manchester United v West Ham – Home Win 

This is an intriguing game as West Ham are in great form at the moment and Manchester United, while still superb on the road, are very erratic at home. Could West Ham spring a surprise? Well they could, but I think a lot does depend on Soucek having his red card from the weekend overturned. Without him I feel the Hammers are not anywhere near as dangerous going forward and as such, with him out at the time I am writing this, I am backing the home side to get back to winning ways here.

Bet Analysis: Wednesday 10th February

Leicester City v Brighton – Home Win

There are a few teams this season who I think will be looking at the FA Cup and thinking that they could win it. Leicester are one of those teams and I think Brendan Rodgers men will be desperate for a good cup run. Brighton are in great form though at the moment and are proving very tough to beat. However, the Foxes have much the better players and refreshing their team in the Cup has worked well for them so far. This will be close but I am backing another Leicester win here.

Everton v Tottenham – Home Win

After their fine draw at Manchester United at the weekend, Everton will be buoyed with confidence ahead of this game while Spurs have found life far more difficult without Harry Kane than I expected to be honest. For some reason, Spurs just doesn’t look like a happy club at the moment and although they do have a good record in the FA Cup when the year ends in ‘1’, I think they are going to struggle here. Everton can be a bit flaky at home at times, but I think they have just enough quality to get the job done here.

Bet Analysis: Thursday 11th February

Wolves v Southampton – Home Win

The first three games between these teams were all in the FA Cup back in 1905, 1908 and 1914, but they have only met once more in this competition since, when Southampton were 2-0 winners back in 2003.  Wolves have the edge in recent battles winning three, losing one and drawing two of the Premier League and League Cup games contested since August 2017. They last met in November at Molineux where the points were shared in a 1-1 draw however current form suggests Southampton are a bit at sea at the moment, while Wolves have been picking up good results. This will be close and I can only see one goal being in it, but I do feel that Wolves will do enough to claim the win and a quarterfinals spot.
