Aston Villa vs Liverpool Tip
Liverpool have struggled for some time now, so we can see Aston Villa causing them problems on Friday night. Indeed, the Reds were beaten 7-2 at Villa Park earlier in this campaign and striker Ollie Watkins was key that day with a terrific hat-trick, so we can’t ignore him for our pick on Friday night.
Our pick: Ollie Watkins
Wolves vs Crystal Palace Tip
After his stunning solo strike against Sheffield United last time out, we’re expecting Eberechi Eze to excel in the heightened limelight on him on Friday night. The former QPR man has the pace and directness to make any defender sweat and against a Wolves outfit that shipped three to lowly Brighton last time out, he could cause problems again at Molineux.
Our pick: Eberechi Eze
Everton vs Rotherham Tip
After a blistering start to the season, Dominic Calvert-Lewin will be hoping to use this fixture against Championship opponents to recapture his form. The 23 year old has failed to find the net in his last six games but has the tools to make this a difficult afternoon against a Rotherham outfit from his native South Yorkshire.
Our pick: Dominic Calvert-Lewin
Norwich vs Coventry Tip
Norwich City striker Teemu Pukki has found his shooting boots again since the Canaries dropped back into the Championship. The Finland international has racked up 11 goals in the league so far and he’ll hope to carry that form into the FA Cup on Saturday as his side welcome a Coventry City outfit that are struggling in the bottom half of the same division.
Our pick: Teemu Pukki
Nottingham Forest vs Cardiff Tip
Nottingham Forest have returned to form lately, going five games without tasting defeat ahead of this weekend’s visit of Cardiff City. Lewis Grabban is the man relied on to score the goals at the City Ground but he’s struggled so far this term – will the winning goal in last weekend’s victory at Preston kickstart some better form for the 32 year old?
Our pick: Lewis Grabban
Stoke City vs Leicester Tip
Stoke City were beaten by Premier League opposition in the EFL Cup in Tottenham last weekend and they’re likely to struggle again on Saturday again the prolific finishing of one Jamie Vardy. The Leicester forward has found the net no fewer than 13 times so far this season in 18 matches in all competitions.
Our pick: Jamie Vardy
QPR vs Fulham Tip
QPR youngster Brighton Osayi-Samuel has been linked with a Premier League move lately and will look to display his credentials in this FA Cup tie against West London rivals Fulham. The 23 year old was on the scoresheet in the R’s handy draw with Championship leaders Norwich last weekend.
Our pick: Bright Osayi-Samuel
Arsenal vs Newcastle
Arsenal’s improved form of late owes a lot to Alexandre Lacazette’s lethal run in front of goal. The Frenchman scored twice in the 0-4 mauling of West Bromwich Albion last weekend to take his tally to five goals in the last four games and he will be out to put the Newcastle backline to the sword on Saturday night.
Our pick: Alexandre Lacazette
Man Utd vs Watford
Bruno Fernandes is eyeing up plenty of individual accolades this season as the Portuguese midfielder has been in blistering form, scoring 15 times in 25 appearances in all competitions and he is very rarely rested by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, so will hope to add to that tally at Old Trafford against Championship outfit Bruno Fernandes.
Our pick: Bruno Fernandes
Man City vs Birmingham
Manchester City will more than likely re-introduce fit again Sergio Aguero to the starting eleven on Sunday against Birmingham City. The Argentinian is the most prolific striker in the club’s history and should have too much in the locker for Aitor Karanka’s struggling Championship outfit to handle.
