FA Cup 4th Round Preview – 27 January 2018

There is no Premier League action this weekend, so attention turns to the Premier League sides in the FA Cup fourth round.

Manchester United v Yeovil

Alexis Sanchez
Can Alexis Sanchez work wonders at Manchester United?

Manchester United travel to Yeovil on Friday evening, and will expect to beat the team who currently sit 21st in League Two. New United signing Alexis Sanchez is expected to start for the Red Devils, with manager Jose Mourinho having promised to play a strong side.

Elsewhere on Friday evening, Sheffield Wednesday welcome Reading to Hillsborough for an all-Championship tie. Amid a host of ties on Saturday afternoon, the highlights are all-Premier League ties at St Mary’s and Anfield.

Southampton v Watford

Southampton welcome Watford to the south coast, with record £19million signing Guido Carrillo having joined from Monaco earlier this week. He will be expected to add more goal threat to Mauricio Pellegrino’s team, with the Saints’ strikers struggling for form.

Watford, meanwhile, sacked coach Marco Silva earlier this week. His replacement, 47-year-old Spaniard Javi Gracia, has stated that he is looking to instil some fresh confidence in the team after a rocky period. The Hornets are bottom of the current Premier League ‘form table’, having taken just five points from the last 33 available from league games.

Liverpool v West Bromwich Albion

Jurgen Klopp
Can Jurgen Klopp help Liverpool find consistency?

Liverpool are hosting West Bromwich Albion on Merseyside, with Jurgen Klopp’s Reds still struggling to find consistency, despite now sitting in fourth place in the Premier League table. Their 1-0 defeat away at Swansea earlier this week followed on the heels of a thrilling 4-3 home win over Manchester City. That kind of inconsistency has dogged the Reds throughout Klopp’s reign as coach, and he will want a strong performance on Saturday to answer some of the doubters.

WBA, meanwhile, are getting used to Alan Pardew as coach, with form having picked up in recent weeks. The Baggies’ last defeat came away at West Ham in the Premier League on January 2. Since then, they have won away at Exeter City in the FA Cup, as well as winning 2-0 at home to Brighton in the Premier League. A 1-1 draw away at Everton last week has kept the unbeaten run going. However, they will find Liverpool a tougher proposition on their second trip to Merseyside in seven days.

Chelsea v Newcastle United

There are more Premier League clubs in action on Sunday, too, with Chelsea welcoming Newcastle United to Stamford Bridge on Sunday lunchtime. Antonio Conte’s Londoners will be looking to bounce back quickly from their midweek Carabao Cup semi-final exit at the hands of rivals Arsenal.

The last time Rafael Benitez’s Newcastle played at Stamford Bridge was December 2, when they succumbed to a 3-1 defeat to the Blues. Since then, form has been patchy for the Magpies, and they lost 3-1 to Manchester City last week in the league.

Cardiff City v Manchester City

Manchester City’s trip to Cardiff on Sunday evening brings the curtain down on the weekend’s FA Cup action. City celebrated reaching the Carabao Cup final with a thrilling win over Bristol City in midweek, and will be looking to maintain their march towards at least a domestic treble of trophies with victory over the Welsh Championship side.
