All Five Results as an Accumulator 9.51/1
  • Burnley vs Peterborough United – While their recent form has been patchy, Burnley were much the better team despite the defeat against Aston Villa, and they tend to be reliably solid on home soil. Sean Dyche is a manager that recognise the importance of the FA Cup, too. Peterborough, meanwhile, have lost three on the bounce in League One and scored a solitary goal in their last 360 minutes of football and counting.
  • Brighton vs Sheffield Wednesday – While Premier League survival remains the aim for Brighton, the ingredients are there for a lengthy cup run. Largely injury free, Graham Potter can field his strongest side at the AMEX here, where they have been reliably solid all season. The paucity of Garry Monk’s squad at Sheffield Wednesday has come home to roost over the festive period (W1 D0 L3), and he will again be without key figures for the trip south.
  • Southampton vs Huddersfield Town – Momentum is key in sport, and after a fantastic run of form (W3 D1 L0) it would be a surprise if Ralph Hasenhuttl tinkers too much with his Southampton side. They should have far too much confidence for a Huddersfield side blasted 2-5 by Stoke last time out.
  • Watford vs Tranmere Rovers – Watford’s players have spoken of their love of playing for Nigel Pearson, and a run of W3 D1 L0 is testament to that. He has found a way of harnessing the talents of Troy Deeney, Ismaila Sarr and Gerard Deulofeu in his starting eleven, and assuming that trio starts they will make light work of a Tranmere side that has conceded nine goals in their last three games.
  • Crystal Palace vs Derby County – All of the signs are pointing towards a Crystal Palace win here, with the Eagles continuing to perform to a level greater than the sum of their parts – they have lost just once since November. As for Derby, who have won just one in eight and boast the joint lowest goals for tally in the Championship, not much of a case can be made, especially as they have 24 hours fewer to prepare for this game than their opponents.
