Our resident betting expert is also backing a player to get booked for diving in a heated battle in west London.
Elsewhere, he’s tipping Arsenal and Tottenham to move into the fifth round and Swansea to hold Liverpool to a draw in 90 minutes at Anfield.
Sir Alex Ferguson has used Hernández sparingly this season, with Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie ahead of the Mexican in the pecking order. However, 24-year-old has started three games and scored four goals – and he should get a start at Stamford Bridge after scoring there on Sunday. So the Tipster’s opening bet is Hernández to score at any time against Chelsea at solid odds of 5/2.
Referee Mark Clattenburg caused controversy for handing Fernando Torres a second booking for simulation in their 3-2 loss to the Red Devils on Sunday. In the earlier Merseyside derby, Phil Neville was also booked for diving as the trend continues in the English top flight. The Tipster reckons a player to be booked for diving in Chelsea against United is a good shout at 5/2.
Arsenal may have struggled to a 1-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, but the pressure will be off for their trip to the Madejski Stadium. The Gunners have won their last five matches against Reading, including a 3-0 Carling Cup win in 2005, so The Tipster is backing Arsenal to win in 90 minutes at odds of 5/6.
Liverpool have managed just two Premier League victories at Anfield in 2012 and the Reds have won just twice in eight attempts this season under Brendan Rodgers. Swansea were resilient against Manchester City on Saturday night and could trouble the Merseysiders, so The Tipster is backing Liverpool and Swansea to draw in 90 minutes at very good odds of 16/5.
André Villas-Boas’ men are starting to hit top form after a slow start. In fact, since the 1-1 draw with Norwich in the Premier League, Spurs have won five of their six games. With the Canaries struggling, the Tipster’s long shot for this edition is Tottenham to win by two goals at 4/1.
