No cupsets in this round so far but we have seen some dramatic finishes and unbelievable cup ties already this week.
Everton and Spurs were involved in an incredible nine-goal thriller while Brighton’s resilience was for nothing after being guilty of ball watching from a Leicester City corner.
Sheffield United join their Premier League counterparts in the quarter-final after seeing off Championship side Bristol City.
We narrowly missed out on a 23/1 acca yesterday thanks to Brighton deciding to switch off on a corner in the last kick of the game against Leicester.
With just the two games, we have a 1.9/1 double with Betfred which would sadly see Barnsley bow out of the FA Cup against Chelsea.
Barnsley vs Chelsea
Barnsley may be 11/1 outsiders but the Yorkshire-based club will be looking forward to welcoming Chelsea – a side they have beaten in their last two FA Cup clashes.
They welcome Thomas Tuchel’s to Oakwell where they came out 1-0 victors in the quarter-final in 2008 when Chelsea were reigning champions at the time.
However, their record against Premier League opposition since that season has been disappointing – they have los ttheir last five FA Cup matches against Premier League opposition with an aggregate score of 2-15. Not a great omen to have.
Chelsea, meanwhile, have a fantastic record against Barnsley and lower league opposition.
The Blues have won four of their last five meetings against Barnsley including a 6-0 win in the League Cup earlier this season.
The visitors have lost twice from 54 FA Cup ties against lower league opposition – Barnsley in 2007/08 was one and Bradford City being the other in 2014/15.
This has Chelsea winning written all over it – no cupset here sadly.
Wolves vs Southampton
Wolves welcome Southampton with their sights set on their second quarter-final appearance in the last three season.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have an impressive record in their last 10 games against Southampton: winning five, drawing four and losing once.
They are favourites at 11/8 but Southampton at 21/10 could be appealing to some punters too.
They won their last FA Cup tie against West Midlands club back in March 2003 – en route to the final losing to Arsenal.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side beat the Gunners last round but have only eliminated top-flight opposition once in the FA Cup which was back in 2017/18 knocking out Watford and West Brom before reaching the semi-final stages.
