Are you looking to get into some heavy FA Cup betting action this weekend? It is the Fifth Round of the famous old trophy and all the big guns still remain in the mix. While there were some Premier League casualties in the Third Round, the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United all look fairly strong still in their respective charges to get to Wembley for the Final.
Premier League side Leicester had to salvage a late draw on Friday night in the weekend’s opening FA Cup match against Championship side Derby and Saturday’s action all kicks off with Liverpool v Wolves from Anfield. Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal are all in action during the day as well. The Blues host Brentford at Stamford Bridge, while Manchester City will be hoping to repeat the form that saw them win 5-0 at West Ham in the last round as they go to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace.
The big game of Saturday is Southampton v Arsenal from the south coast, the Saints having won their last two on home soil against the Gunners and having kept a clean sheet in four of their last five against them too. So a tricky game for Arsenal there and more of Saturday’s FA Cup action sees National League side Lincoln playing host to Championship leaders Brighton, while Burnley will be looking to continue their strong home form as they host Championship strugglers Bristol City.
The FA Cup weekend closes with MAnchester United v Wigan on Sunday evening, the Red Devils having won 17 of their previous 18 games against the Latics in all competitions. The Latics have been to Old Trafford eight times before and have managed to score just the one goal in total there. With them hovering just above the Championship drop zone, it is expected that Manchester United will march on to the fifth round from that tie.
