FA Cup third round football tips for Saturday 05 01 19

This 23/1 accumulator features football tips from the latest stage of England's oldest cup competition as Premier League and Championship sides join.

Manchester United (-1) to beat Reading (12:30)

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became the first Manchester United manager since Sir Matt Busby to win his opening four matches as they beat Newcastle 2-0 in midweek.

United have also beaten Cardiff, Huddersfield and Bournemouth in that sequence, each by a margin of more than one goal, and should coast past Championship strugglers.

Reading are winless in their last nine away games and have scored just one goal in their last six on the road.

West Brom to beat Wigan (12:30)

West Brom come into this game having already beaten Wigan 2-0 at home on Boxing Day.

The Baggies have lost just two of their last 15 matches at the Hawthorns and should take advantage of the visitors’ dreadful form.

Wigan have lost nine of their last 13 games in all competitions, while they have picked up just two points in their last 11 away games in the Championship.

Fleetwood to beat AFC Wimbledon (15:00)

Fleetwood were beaten 5-2 at home to league leaders Portsmouth on New Year’s Day, but that result shouldn’t mask their impressive recent record at Highbury.

Joey Barton’s side had won five and drawn one of their previous six home games, including a 3-0 victory over promotion-chasing Doncaster.

Wimbledon have the fifth-worst travelling record in League One and, aside from cup victories over non-league Haringey Borough and Halifax, have just one other away win in their last 12 matches on the road.

Arsenal to win to nil v Blackpool (17:30)

Blackpool have won just two of their last nine matches in all competitions, including an extra-time win over National League side Solihull Moors in the previous round, following their 1-0 defeat at home to Sunderland on New Year’s Day.

The Tangerines have scored just six goals in that sequence, with half of those coming against Solihull in the second-round replay.

The hosts are also unlikely to create a hostile atmosphere at Bloomfield Road, with vast numbers of home fans still boycotting the club.

Arsenal bounced back from their heavy defeat at Liverpool last week by beating Fulham 4-1 last time out and should comfortably win this one.

Bristol City to beat Huddersfield (17:30)

Huddersfield lost their eighth straight match as they were beaten 2-1 by fellow strugglers Burnley on Wednesday, while they also had key player Christopher Schindler sent off.

The Terriers have lost eight of their 11 away games in all competitions this season, including a 2-0 defeat to Championship Stoke in the EFL Cup second round.

Bristol City have won back-to-back matches and are unbeaten in eight, so represent excellent value at odds against.
