Burnley to beat Norwich
Millwall to beat Sheffield United
Newcastle to beat Oxford
Southampton to beat Tottenham
West Ham to beat West Brom
Burnley go into this FA Cup clash buoyed by two impressive wins against Leicester and Manchester United and they might just fancy going on an FA Cup run. The Clarets have now won three of their last four games in all competitions and this home tie gives them a real chance of progressing to the fifth round. Norwich remain rooted to the bottom of the Premier League and although their performances have been improved in recent weeks they still haven’t got the results to lift them out of trouble. Norwich have struggled away from home this season and they will not relish a trip to a revitalised Turf Moor after Burnley’s las two results. Burnley have already beaten Norwich at Turf Moor in the Premier League this season in September and I would expect another win for Sean Dyche’s men in the cup.
Millwall will fancy a cup upset when they take on Premier League Sheffield United at the Den. Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder made a host of changes in the third round win over AFC Fylde and I would expect him to rotate his squad again and that could Millwall a big advantage. Gary Rowett has done a remarkable job since taking over at Millwall and the Lions have lost just twice in their last 16 games. Millwall have won their last four matchs at home and they look great value to take the scalp of United. Millwall have won nine of their last 11 home games in the FA Cup and I expect that trend to continue against a much-changed Sheffield United line-up.
Newcastle have been the masters of late drama recently, but they will be aiming for a more comfortable 90 minutes against League One Oxford this weekend. Newcastle have not made it past the fourth round of the FA Cup since 2006 with their fans feeling they are long overdue a good cup run and coming up against Oxford offers them a perfect opportunity to reach the fifth round. Oxford have already beaten West Ham in the League Cup this season, but a trip to St James’ Park is a different proposition considering their away form having only won one of their last five away games. Newcastle saw off Oxford’s League One rivals Rochdale after a replay in the last round, but the Magpies should be able to get the job done here in what could be a high-scoring affair.
Southampton are upwardly mobile as they prepare to take on out-of-sorts Tottenham at St Mary’s. The Saints are one of the form teams in the country having won four of their last fives games in all competitions to ease fears over a relegation battle and move into the top half of the Premier League table. Southampton got the better of Tottenham on the south coast at the start of the month and they will be confident of making it a quick-fire double over Jose Mourinho’s men. Spurs are struggling for goals in the absence of the injured Harry Kane and their away form is a real concern with just one victory from their last seven away trips. Southampton are in a lot better mood than Spurs right now and they look great value to dump them out of the FA Cup.
West Ham take on West Brom with both sides arguably having bigger priorities than the FA Cup. West Ham’s objective is to avoid relegation from the Premier League, while West Brom’s main priority is to win promotion from the Championship as Slaven Bilic prepares to take on his former employers. The two sides come into this tie in poor form making it a hard one to call, but I think West Ham’s need for a morale-boosting win is greater than West Brom’s right now. West Ham have won four of their last 19 matches in all competitions, but Hammers boss David Moyes will be seeking a response from his players as he looks to ease the pressure coming from the club’s disillusioned fans. I would expect both sides to make wholesale changes to their starting XIs and with that in mind West Ham should have greater strength in depth to edge out West Brom.
