The FA Cup road to Wembley continues this weekend as the Premier League Teams join in the action. Leicester, Manchester City and Chelsea are all being televised on Saturday, and we’ve tips for Fleetwood vs Leicester, Manchester City vs Burnley, and Norwich vs Chelsea.
Fleetwood vs Leicester (Saturday 12.45, BBC1)
Betting Guide: Fleetwood 11/2, Draw 10/3, Leicester 4/7
Fleetwood have made it this far courtesy of a 2-1 win over Chorley, and a 2-0 replay win over Hereford after they drew their first encounter 1-1. However, it’s been an average year for Fleetwood in League 1, where they currently sit in 12th place with 33 points from 26 games. They also have to face a Leicester side that has acquitted itself well so far this season with 30 points from 22 games leaving them in eighth position in the Premier League Table. I certainly wouldn’t put anyone off putting Leicester in their accas but, with Leicester scoring in 9 of their last 10 games, and Fleetwood scoring in 7 of their last 10 games, Leicester to win and both teams to score may prove better value.

Manchester City vs Burnley (Saturday 3.00, Sky Sports)
Betting Guide: Man City 3/16, Draw 7/1, Burnley 20/1
Burnley are probably disappointed to have drawn Man City so early in the FA Cup, as they’re playing well enough to have enjoyed a good run against lesser opposition. They did draw away at City in the Premier League in 2009 and 2014, but have been defeated twice since City have been managed by Pep Guardiola, 2-1 and 3-0. Meanwhile, despite City having failed to find the net away at Crystal Palace, normal service was quickly resumed with a 3-1 at home against Watford, making it 10 home wins on the bounce in the Premier League. Having beaten Burnley 3-0 in the league in October, City are fancied to win again however, after conceding goals in 5 of their last 6 home wins, Burnley can hopefully manage to find the net on their way out.

Norwich vs Chelsea (Saturday 5.30, BT Sports)
Betting Guide: Norwich 13/2, Draw 7/2, Chelsea 1/2
Norwich and Chelsea have clashed 10 times in the Premier League this century, and all that Norwich could manage is two draws. They also lost 4-0 at Stamford Bridge in the 2006/7 FA Cup. For an ex-Premier League side, Norwich also aren’t doing very well in the Championship this season, languishing 9 points outside the play-off places in 13th place. I’m sure the Norwich Manager will be telling his players that Chelsea aren’t playing that well away from home at the moment, and they’re not with only one win in their last five away games. However, as Chelsea have won the FA Cup four-times this century, they look sure to be motivated to win, and are fancied to win to nil.
