It’s that time of the week again, when we get all Michael Fish and try to decipher where it’ll be raining goals this weekend. After last week’s resounding success as the treble came up trumps to give us a winning start, we look to the F.A Cup for some goals galore gems and possible cupsets.
Brighton vs Arsenal
Gone are the days where Arsenal’s dominance was built on a mean back-line and a boring 1-0 win, they’re more inclined to play out a 7-3 or 7-5 scoreline of late. The Gunners don’t keep many clean sheets (1 in their last 7) and a trip to the Amex stadium shouldn’t buck the trend, Brighton are on a 5 match unbeaten run and have both scored and conceded in their last 3, here’s hoping for a fantastic fourth.
Reading vs Sheffield United
Goals galore specialists Reading host Sheffield United, promotion hopefuls of League One in what looks like another cracking BTTS selection. The away side haven’t been shy in front of goal especially in this competition (averaging over 2 goals per game) and against a Reading team who attack at all costs we could be in for yet another cricket score involving Reading, although we’ll settle for 1-1 of course.
Derby vs Blackburn
Separated by just one point and one place in the Championship this term, these two sides go head-to-head in the F.A Cup this time round. Both sides have been amongst the goals of late, with Blackburn scoring and conceding in each of their last 3 matches whilst Derby are 4 from 5. With both sides likely to field fringe players, it only increases that chances of seeing a fair share of net-busting action.
