FA Cup 5th round predictions: Sunday 17 February 2019
Bristol City v Wolves
Kick-off: 1:00pm (GMT) Sunday 17 February 2019
Where to watch live on TV in the UK: BT Sport 2 / BT Sport 4K UHD
Venue: Ashton Gate Stadium, Bristol
Were tipping this one based on an unusual theory given the fact that both these teams are in really great form, so bear with us!
Wolves are having a superb season, they are 7th in the league, realistically they are not going to finish above that and they are certainly not going to get involved in a relegation scrap.
Bristol City are on a remarkable run of form which is the best in the club’s history since either World war! However, it’s got to the point now where they may want to focus solely on the league. They are up to 5th and have literally come from nowhere.
Rewind back 14 months and they were also in the play-off places. They had just beaten Man United in the League Cup and had two legs against Man City in the semi-finals to look forward to. It’s fair to say that cup run did their league chances no good last season, which the manager and board will be fully aware of.
We just have a sneaky feeling given their recent run, that Lee Johnson may not be taking this game as seriously as Nuno Santos.
Result prediction: Wolves win (Best odds: 10/11 with Boyle Sports)
Correct score prediction: 1-3 (Best odds: 16/1 with Coral)
Doncaster v Crystal Palace
Kick-off: 4:00pm (GMT) Sunday 17 February 2019
Where to watch live on TV in the UK: BBC One
Venue: Keepmoat Stadium, Doncaster
This is another tip based on very similar feelings. Palace should, repeat, should be too good to get involved in a league relegation tussle, despite the fact it’s hardly been the best of seasons for them. However, in truth, their league form has picked up lately and they have better options up front than they did during the first half of the season.
Doncaster however are another team on a great run of form, and all of a sudden have plenty to play for regarding the play-offs and promotion.
It’s a slightly strange way to look at it but like Bristol city, we can see them going into this one ever so slightly half-hearted.
Result prediction: Crystal Palace win (Best odds: 8/13 with Betway)
Correct score prediction: 0-2 (Best odds: 7/1 with Sportingbet)
Chelsea v Man United
Kick-off: 7:30pm (GMT) Monday 18 February 2019
Where to watch live on TV in the UK: BBC One
Venue: Stamford Bridge, West London
A game based all around how these two sides tend to react to defeats.
For United, it was their first defeat under interim boss Ole Solskjær. There will be people looking at this run of fixtures they have, and building up the pressure on them.
For Chelsea, the response is key after a 6-0 demolishing at Man City last Sunday, with serious questions over their manager and the whole “Sarri-ball” debacle (as if Sarri actually invented Football, it’s like when Liverpool turned into Brendon Rodgers Footballing Philosophy!)
All that said, United have injuries to players who have made a big difference to their attacking play of late. If you look at who comes in for Lingard and Martial; the choice of Lukaku, Sanchez or Mata gives you no pace whatsoever in comparison.
You also need to take into account the fact that Chelsea are in good home form, and responded well to beat Spurs in the League cup semi-finals.
We are going with a home win here in a less than entertaining game.
Result prediction: Chelsea win (Best odds: 10/1 enhanced odds with 888Sport)
Correct score prediction: 1-0 (Best odds: 8/1 with Sportingbet)
