Betway writers’ 4 to score picks for Saturday 26 01 19

Our writers predict the first scorer in these FA Cup matches for our free-to-play football predictions game.

4 To Score is Betway’s free-to-play football predictions game, where you can win a rollover jackpot of £250k by correctly predicting the first player to score in our four selected matches.

To help you make your picks, our writers reveal who they think will break the deadlock in the FA Cup this weekend.

Manchester City v Burnley: Phil Foden {ODDS:369496462:15/2}

Manchester City have won their last three matches at the City of Manchester Stadium to nil and beat Burnley 5-0 at home in October.

Foden started and scored in the 7-0 thrashing of Rotherham in the previous round of the FA Cup and also netted in the 9-0 hammering of Burton a fortnight ago.

The 18-year-old averages 2.1 shots per game this season, so should threaten, and could be a crucial point of difference to ensure you bag the entire pot.

Brighton v West Brom: Jurgen Locadia {ODDS:369782419:5/1}

Having been made to wait for opportunities, Locadia is now threatening to become Chris Hughton’s first-choice striker.

He’s played more minutes than Glenn Murray during Brighton’s last seven, doubling his tally for the club after scoring both of their last two goals at the Amex.

Those strikes last season came against Coventry in this competition and Swansea, who were relegated along with this weekend’s opponents West Brom.

Newcastle v Watford: Adalberto Penaranda {ODDS:369496099:7/1}

A Watford player has landed in the first goalscorer market in the Hornets’ last four away games, and in every one of their cup matches this season.

And Penaranda, who made his debut for the club at Woking in the previous round, is a nice bet to keep that run going at Newcastle.

The Venezeulan international was eager to shoot at every opportunity in that match, and could enjoy himself against a depleted Newcastle defence.

Adam Drury

Crystal Palace v Tottenham: No goalscorer {ODDS:369497360:15/2}

Palace needed an 89th-minute Andre Ayew winner to see off a Grimsby side that played with 10 men for 87 minutes in the last round, so it’s hard to see them scoring against Spurs.

The Eagles have only scored six home goals against Premier League opposition all season, with two of those being penalties and another a Craig Cathcart own goal.

Tottenham will surely field a heavily-rotated side given that this game is sandwiched between an EFL Cup semi-final and a Premier League game against Watford, so no goalscorer looks the way to go.
