KevMac previews tonight's action in the FA Cup and Football League
Manchester United v West Ham United
THERE’S an FA Cup cracker tonight as in-form West Ham head to Old Trafford chasing a place in the quarter-finals.
Manchester United lost further ground in the title race as they conceded with the last kick in Saturday’s 3-3 draw with Everton.
But they are still McBookie’s 4/7 favourites to win in 90 minutes with the Hammers as big as 17/4 and the stalemate 7/2.
A lot will depend on how seriously each gaffer treats the Cup so I’m steering clear of backing a winner.
I got my fingers burned backing under 2.5 goals at Old Trafford on Saturday but I’m going for it again here as the Hammers have been excellent at the back.
It has also come up in two of the last three meetings and pays 6/4 at McBookie here.
If you’re looking for a long-odds option then try backing Harry Maguire to score a header inside 90 minutes, which is priced 14/1 at Skybet.
Burnley v Bournemouth
Tonight’s other FA Cup tie sees Championship side Bournemouth visit Burnley, who look overpriced at 13/10 with McBookie for a win.
The Cherries have just binned boss Jason Tindall so I fancy the Clarets if Sean Dyche fields a strong side.
McBookie Star Bet
- Manchester United have won seven penalties this season and a spot-kick for either side is priced 2/1
