Our man-in-the-know is tipping both the Hammers and the Red Devils to net in Saturday’s late kick-off in what should be an entertaining tie.
Elsewhere, our resident betting expert is backing Papiss Cissé to continue his goal-scoring run with a goal for Newcastle at Brighton, while backing Chelsea to beat Southampton.
Wayne Rooney’s prolonged absence due to an injury picked up on Christmas Day has provided Hernández with a run in the United first-team. The Mexico international has scored three goals in his last two Premier League outings. The Tipster feels 13/10 is a great price for the South American to score on Saturday, bearing in mind his recent exploits in front of goal.
Both teams have scored in West Ham’s last five games at Upton Park, while Manchester United have kept a clean sheet just once in their last six away games. With Hernández and Robin van Persie scoring for fun and Hammers skipper Kevin Nolan set to return to the starting line-up, the Tipster is backing both sides to score in the pick of the FA Cup third-round ties at 4/6.
With Demba Ba signing for Chelsea on Friday, Papiss Cissé is the main man for the Magpies once again. The Senegal international endured a miserable start to the season but has recently come to life, with two goals in his last three Premier League games. Also, let’s not forget that Cissé scored 14 goals in 13 appearances last season. The Tipster is backing Cisse to net any time against Brighton at 11/8.
Although Chelsea were on the end of a FA Cup shock last season, it was a freak result in a west London derby against Queens Park Rangers. If Rafael Benitez picks a strong team, which he will need to do now after the loss to the Hoops on Wednesday, the Tipster expects Chelsea to be too strong for Nigel Adkins’ men. Our betting expert can’t see past the Blues so he’s tipping them to win at 7/10.
Norwich City’s impressive run in October, November and early December came to a shuddering halt with four defeats in five games over the festive period. Overtly, Darren Ferguson’s men have turned around a miserable sequence of results by winning four of their last five and moving out of the relegation zone. With home advantage, the Tipster’s ambitious long shot is Peterborough to beat Norwich without conceding at 11/2.
