Tottenham Hotspur v Wycombe Wanderers Preview & Betting Tips

Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur welcome League Two outfit Wycombe Wanderers at White Hart Lane in Saturday afternoon’s FA Cup fourth round, and are big favourites to come out on top to book their place in the fifth round.

Spurs are not only three divisions better off than their opponents they are in fine form and will be taking the competition seriously in their pursuit of silverware.

Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur side are coming off the back of seven wins and a draw from their last eight games in all competitions, while boasting eight consecutive wins at home in the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup, keeping clean sheets in their previous three at White Hart Lane.

The Londoners beat Aston Villa in the third round to make it this far in the competition and are 1/6 with William Hill to win against Wycombe Wanderers.

The visitors are no slouches, however, boasting a 16-game unbeaten run in all competitions ahead of their trip to face Tottenham. Wycombe haven’t lost a game since November, and have beaten the likes of Portsmouth, Chesterfield and Stourbridge in the FA Cup to reach the fourth round.

The League Two side have been outstanding on the road, boasting nine wins and a draw from their last 10 away games in domestic competitions, and Wycombe are 21/1 with Betfair to win against Tottenham Hotspur as a result.

Regardless, Tottenham are the favourites as they have the stronger squad and home advantage. Pochettino will be taking the competition seriously too, making positive changes to the squad rather than greatly weakening the team to allow the key players a rest.

Spurs have fantastic fringe players to choose from who will be desperate to impress, and the Londoners should see past the Wanderers three divisions worse off than them this weekend. Looking for value in this match has proved very difficult, but we have eventually come down on the side of there will be under 3.5 goals in this match. The best odds we could get was 10/11 with William Hill.

Manchester United v Wigan Athletic Preview & Betting Tips

Premier League top-four chasers Manchester United welcome relegation-threatened Championship side Wigan Athletic to Old Trafford in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon.

The FA Cup holders are big favourites to reach the fifth round of the competition given the gulf in class between the two sides, coupled with their contrasting form.

Manchester United are enjoying a two-month unbeaten run in all competitions while Wigan Athletic have been short of victories on the road.

Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United side have won nine and drawn two of their last eleven games in all competitions, and have been in fantastic form in their own backyard.

The Red Devils have won six of their last seven at Old Trafford, and haven’t lost on home soil since September. United went all the way in the FA Cup last season and would love a repeat given their title hopes are all but over.

The hosts are in the EFL Cup semi-final too and Mourinho has spoken out about his determination for a trophy haul.

As for their opponents, Wigan Athletic come into the clash with three consecutive wins under their belt, but away from the sees the Latics less than convincing.

Wigan have won only three games on their travels this season, and Manchester United are 2/11 with Paddy Power as a result. Wigan do have history in the FA Cup, however, winning the competition against all odds in 2013, before making it to the semi-finals a year later.

However, Athletic have suffered premature exits from the FA Cup since and aren’t likely to pull off a shock at Old Trafford.

Wigan are 19/1 with Betfair to win against Manchester United, but the visitors have been so solid in their own backyard this season so a home win seems the most likely outcome. Mourinho will rest players but he won’t risk defeat by heavily weakening the side. Corals are going 4/6 that Man United will lead at half time and full time and that seems fair to us.

Chelsea v Brentford Preview & Betting Tips

remier League leaders Chelsea welcome mediocre Championship side Brentford at Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday afternoon and are expected to progress without any issues given the contrasting form between the two clubs.

Chelsea, a club who have a real affinity with the FA Cup, have been blowing their opposition away under new manager Antonio Conte this season, but Brentford have struggled with consistency ahead of their trip to face the in-form Londoners which could see them coming unstuck this weekend.

Hosts Chelsea are enjoying a bright season under the Italian head coach, boasting three consecutive wins ahead of their FA Cup clash. The Blues have won 16 of their last 18 games in all competitions and are big favourites to dispatch of their Championship opponents as a result.

On home soil, Chelsea have won their last nine, and are 21/100 with Marathon Bet to win against Brentford in 90 minutes. Only Liverpool have beaten the Londoners in their own backyard in 2016/17 so it’s hard to see anything other than a Chelsea win when the two sides meet on Saturday.

While chasing the Premier League title this season, Conte will take the FA Cup seriously in regard to his squad selection.

The Blues have quality on the fringes who will come into the team this weekend and should make light work of a Bees side who have failed to win five of their last seven in all competitions.

Away from home, the visitors have managed just three wins since September and unsurprisingly aren’t tipped to deliver an upset in the FA Cup.

The Bees beat Eastleigh in the third round to make it this far, but aren’t expected to get any further. Brentford are 17-1 with Winner to win against Chelsea, but the second tier club would be only the second club since October to get the better of the Premier League leaders. It is hard to see Brentford scoring against the Premier League leaders.
