January 26, 2023

Earlier this year, we took a look ahead to the Third Round ties in the 2022/23 FA Cup competition that were played across England and Wales early on in the month of January.

Well, those Third Round ties provided us with a number of upsets, where teams from lower divisions managed to get the better of teams from the Premier League.

That has now led us to the Fourth Round of the FA Cup competition, and with some big names having bitten the dust in the competition already, including five-time finalists in the past six years Chelsea, it sets up an intriguing set of games this weekend.

So if you are a punter looking at trying to pick out the next long-odds giantkilling in this competition, then check out the odds available on all the games with bet365 Sport, as well as the betting available once the game kicks off and is In Play.

FA Cup Fourth Round Tips

  • Manchester City v Arsenal

Tip – Without doubt the biggest game of the round sees the top two in the Premier League battle it out at the Etihad. City start as the strong favourites but I think Arsenal will not wilt so easily here so I am backing the draw at 16/5.

  • Walsall v Leicester City (12.30pm)

Tip – Two midlands sides, but ones at opposing ends of the professional game in England. It’s hard to see even a Leicester side in poor form losing this one at the Bescot Stadium. Take Leicester to win to nil at 11/10.

  • Accrington Stanley v Leeds United (12.30pm)

Tip – A Lancashire v Yorkshire clash between a League One and Premier League side. I don’t expect this war of the roses to go the way of the red rose though as I am backing Leeds to land a comfortable win here. Take Patrick Bamford to score first at 15/4.

  • Sheffield Wednesday v Fleetwood

Tip – After beating Newcastle in the last round, Wednesday now get a chance against Fleetwood to move into the Last 16 and it is one I’d expect them to take comfortably. Back the Owls to win to nil which is a 5/4 shot.

  • Blackburn Rovers v Birmingham City

Tip – Another all-Championship game. Rovers are in great form at the moment, while Birmingham City have struggled and as such, I can’t see anything than a Rovers win and the 11/8 price on that looks a good bet.

  • Southampton v Blackpool

Tip – Blackpool demolished Nottingham Forest in the last round, but I think they’ll face a tougher test here. Saints may be distracted by their battle to stay in the Premier League, but I think they’ll do enough to progress here. Back Mislav Orsic to score any time at 7/4.

  • Ipswich Town v Burnley

Tip – Burnley produced a great display to beat Bournemouth on the road in the last round and I expect Vincent Kompany’s men to perform well here too. Take Burnley to score in both halves of this game at the boosted price of 13/5.

  • Bristol City v West Brom

Tip – Two Championship sides who met at Ashton Gate just a few weeks back with West Brom coming out as 2-0 winners. That was City’s last defeat though and I have a feeling this one may need a replay to decide the winner. Take the draw here at 5/2.

  • Luton Town v Grimsby Town

Tip – The home side are two divisions above the visitors to Kenilworth Road and I can’t see the Mariners getting a shock result here. Back Luton to win 2-1 at 15/2.

  • Fulham v Sunderland

Tip – The Londoners have been in great form for the vast majority of the season and they should have the advantage here against an improving Sunderland side. Take Fulham to win and both teams to score – no – at 13/8/

  • Preston v Tottenham (6pm)

Tip – Two sides with similar form and great cup pedigree in the past, but I think the extra quality Tottenham have in attack will be the key here and I am backing them to land the win thanks to that. A 2-0 win for Spurs is an 11/2 shot in the Correct Score market.

  • Manchester United v Reading (8pm)

Tip – After beating Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup semi final 1st leg in midweek, United should be well set for this game against Reading, managed by former United star Paul Ince. Take Wout Weghorst of uUnited to grab a goal here at any time at 11/10

  • Brighton v Liverpool (1.30pm)

Tip – Brighton beat Liverpool 3-0 not so long ago in the EPL. This one will be closer I feel but I can’t see Liverpool gaining revenge. The draw at 27/10 looks a solid bet here.

  • Stoke City v Stevenage (2pm)

Tip – Stevenage caused a big upset in the last round with that huge win at Villa. Stoke’s form isn’t great but they have won two of their last 3 games, and I think that continues here. Take Dwight Gayle to score any time for Stoke at 15/8.

  • Wrexham v Sheffield United (4.30pm)

Tip – Wrexham stunned Coventry in the last round to reach the Fourth Round and a home tie shown on TV will be huge for the team, owned by Rob McElhenny and Ryan Reynolds. The Blades though are a tough outfit and are in good form so take the Blades to win and both teams to score at 11/4.

  • Derby County v West Ham United

Tip – Derby’s improved form will make this a tough test for West Ham, but I think David Moyes’ men are up for the challenge here. Take West Ham and both teams to score at 13/5.
