Manchester City vs Fulham: Man City to win & BTTS - 8/5

On Saturday, Premier League leaders Manchester City host top of the Championship at the Etihad Stadium in what is expected to be an entertaining match for the neutrals to watch.

The both teams to score market has landed in three of City’s last four matches, most recently in their 1-1 draw away at Southampton where Aymeric Laporte’s second-half header cancelled out Kyle Walker-Peters opener. Prior to this, the Sky Blues had beaten Chelsea 1-0 in the Premier League, as well as Swindon Town 4-1 in the FA Cup and Arsenal 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium thanks to a stoppage-time winner from Rodri.

On the other hand, Fulham’s recent goalscoring form is one that has been well publicised, as the Cottagers thumped Reading 7-0 in early January, as well as Bristol City and Birmingham City by 6-2 scorelines. Last time out, Fulham only managed a 1-1 draw with Blackpool off the back of a 3-2 victory away at Stoke City.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Brighton & Hove Albion: Spurs to win & BTTS - 3/1

Next up on this list is Tottenham Hotspur against Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday night in an all-Premier League clash in the FA Cup.

The last two meetings between Spurs and the Seagulls at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium have both resulted in 2-1 victories to the home side, most recently, in November 2020 when goals by Harry Kane and Gareth Bale on either side of a Tariq Lamptey goal gave then Spurs manager Jose Mourinho all three points.

Antonio Conte’s men have had inconsistent results of late, following 2-0 and 1-0 defeats to Chelsea in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup, as well as a 2-0 defeat to the Blues in the league at Stamford Bridge last time out. But, the Lilywhites have won their other two matches in their last five, defeating Morecambe 3-1 in the last round of this competition, as well as earning a dramatic 3-2 victory over Leicester City thanks to a stoppage-time brace from Steven Bergwijn.

Graham Potter’s side have drawn all of their last three matches by 1-1 scorelines, doing so against Leicester City, Chelsea and Crystal Palace in the Premier League, prior to a 2-1 win at The Hawthorns against West Bromwich Albion in the third round of the FA Cup. The Seagulls last victory came at Goodison Park against Everton as a superb Alexis Mac Allister brace inspired them to a 3-2 win.

Liverpool vs Cardiff City: Liverpool to win & BTTS - 5/2

Liverpool plays Championship outfit Cardiff City at midday on Sunday at Anfield in the fourth round of the FA Cup, with Jurgen Klopp’s side being one of the favourites for the competition.

The Reds come into this match off the back of three victories in a row, having beaten Crystal Palace 3-1 last time out, as well as Arsenal 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium to advance through to the Carabao Cup final. Klopp’s men also beat Brentford 3-0 at home in the Premier League and defeated Shrewsbury Town 4-1 at Anfield in the last round of the competition, as Kaide Gordon, Fabinho (2) and Roberton Firmino all got on the scoreboard having initially fallen behind to Daniel Udoh’s 27th-minute strike.

Cardiff are in poor form in the Championship as they are 20th in the table, but, the Bluebirds did manage a vital 2-1 victory over Nottingham Forest in their last match, thanks to goals by Jordan Hugill and Isaak Davies. Steve Morison’s team were previously beaten by Bristol City 3-2, Blackburn Rovers 1-0 and could only manage a 1-1 draw away at an out of form West Brom side. The Bluebirds last win prior to the Forest match was in a 2-1 home victory against Preston North End in the last round of this competition.

Nottingham Forest vs Leicester City: Leicester to win & BTTS - 17/5

The final match on this list sees an East Midland derby take place as Nottingham Forest host Leicester City at the City Ground on Sunday afternoon.

Steve Cooper’s side will be hoping to cause another FA Cup shock, having beaten Arsenal 1-0 in the last round thanks to a Lewis Grabban strike, before going on to defeat Millwall 1-0, Derby County 2-1 and Barnsley 3-0 in the run-up to their recent 2-1 loss against Cardiff City.

On the other hand, Leicester have been inconsistent of late which perhaps sums up Brendan Rodgers’ men's season, as the Foxes bounced back from their 6-3 hammering at the hands of Manchester City by beating Liverpool 1-0 and Watford 4-1 in the FA Cup, before losing 3-2 to Tottenham in dramatic fashion. Leicester could only manage a 1-1 draw in their last outing at home to Brighton a Patson Daka’s opener was cancelled out by a late Danny Welbeck equaliser.
