After suffering at the hands of fierce rivals Manchester United last weekend, Jurgen Klopp’s charges will be confident of returning to winning ways when they welcome the Hornets to Anfield on Saturday evening. Though Javi Gracia’s men have failed to find the back of the net in four of their last five away outings, they will be positive to score against a team whose defence has been weak, having shipped in seven goals in four of their last five home ties in the league. It’s thus worth backing both outfits to score.
The Red Devils will look forward to seeing off the Seagulls in the FA quarterfinals in a bid to re-establish the confidence reposed in them by their fans after crashing out of the Uefa Champions League to Sevilla in midweek. The last five encounters between these sides have not produced many goals. Chris Hughton’s men have notched just twice in their last five Premier League games away from home, while the hosts have found the net nine times in their last five. Backing less than two goals at old Trafford is thus good value.
The Liberty Stadium is the venue for another exciting encounter in the FA Cup between Swansea City and Tottenham Hotspur. The Swans thrashed Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 in a rematch on their own turf and will be hoping to make home advantage count. However, Spurs’ rematch at Wembley saw them demolish League One outfit, Rochdale 6-1. Mauricio Pochettino's side have had the better of the Swans in four of their last five meetings and victory in south Wales shouldn't be out of place.
The Toffees will be optimistic for this clash after their 2-0 home victory over Brighton last Saturday. The Potters haven’t been impressive in their own backyard, having picked just a single victory in their last five outings but will be putting in a fighht in a bid to climb out of the relegation zone. There has been goal action at both ends of the pitch in two of the last five matches between these two and is worth staking on.
