The fourth round of the FA Cup is taking place this week, but not only that the second leg of the EFL Cup Semi-finals will be commencing too – and Bet365 have some superb offers waiting to be claimed.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool will be hosting Southampton on Wednesday and it’s the game that Liverpool need to turn around, because Nathan Redmond made sure Southampton were going to be victorious, when he found the back of the net in the 20th minute. This means Liverpool are a goal down and they’ll need to pull out all the stops if they’re going to progress into the next round.
Manchester United will be visiting Hull this week and if their form is anything to go by, they will be coming away sealing their place at Wembley. On Tuesday 10th January, Hull travelled to Old Trafford and they didn’t work up much of a sweat during the game in all honesty. Mourhino’s men were far too powerful and sealed a 2 – 0 victory over the Airlie Birds, thanks to Mata and Fellaini.
There are numerous other games taking place, just like struggling Middlesbrough, they may have just been promoted to the Premiership, but they are finding it hard to shake off the bottom of the table. Middlesbrough will be welcoming Accrington Stanley – a team who are also sitting in the wrong end of the table. Boro have only hosted Accrington Stanley once before and that was in the League Cup during August 2013, Middlesbrough lost 2 – 1. Will Stanley manage to beat them again or will Aitor Karanka’s boys finally get a win?
The Gunners will be travelling to Southampton on Saturday, two teams who are no strangers in the FA Cup. Southampton and Arsenal have met four times in the FA Cup since 1927, and Arsenal have managed to succeed in beating their rivals three out of the four times.
Chelsea will be welcoming Brentford and this fixture has been played out three times previously in the FA Cup. January 1950, Brentford lost 1 – 0, January 2013, Brentford managed to secure a 2 – 2 draw and in February 2013, Chelsea lost 4 – 0. Will Brentford be able to snatch an easy win?
Other fixtures taking place are; Liverpool v Wolves, Blackburn v Blackpool, Burnley v Bristol, Spurs v Wycombe and many more.
