Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City both teams to score: Yes – 8/15

Pep Guardiola has achieved pretty much all a manager can in club football, and has provided a tactical nightmare for almost every team he's visited over the past few years – every team, that is, apart from Tottenham Hotspur.

For all the silverware Guardiola has won, he has seen his Man City side beaten to-nil in five of the last six visits, with the anomaly (a 1-0 win) played behind closed doors in April 2021.

It's something that is surely playing at the back of the Spaniard's mind, and after winning the treble last year, Guardiola even went as far to admit in an interview that his next wish was to score and win against Spurs.

With Spurs having several key players out through injury or international duty, this could be his best chance to do so at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, given City's counter-attacking nous and Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou's attack-minded approach.

Both sides will rotate their teams to an extent, although when Man City rotate, their squad is still littered with world-class talent.

Then again, Spurs have scored in every single game this season so won't change the way they play against Man City. As such, it would be a huge shock if both teams didn't score in this encounter.

Ipswich vs Maidstone

Ipswich vs Maidstone both teams to score: Yes – 4/5

One of the more exciting ties of the round sees eight-tier Maidstone United travel to Championship high-flyers Ipswich Town. Maidstone defeated Stevenage in the last round, and now have a huge day out against the one-time European Cup winners.

However, Ipswich have bigger things on their mind other than a home FA Cup fourth round clash, such as earning promotion back to the Premier League after 22 years of exile.

This means Kieran McKenna is likely to put out a heavily rotated team, offering Maidstone a huge chance to cause an upset or at the very least, find the back of the net once.

West Bromwich Albion vs Wolves both teams to score: No – 11/10

This will be the first black country derby since 2021, when West Brom were in the Premier League with Wolves. The Baggies have their eyes fully set on at least making the play-offs this season, so could well rotate and admit defeat in this clash, despite fans begging for an upset.

Six of West Brom's last nine games have failed to see both teams score, so Wolves will certainly not have it easy when it comes to finding the back of the net. Gary O'Neil has done a solid job at Molineux, and could increase his approval rating even more by beating Wolves' bitter rivals with the bonus of a clean sheet.

Manchester United FA Cup

Newport County vs Manchester United both teams to score: Yes – 11/10

Manchester United avoided a potential banana skin in the third round by beating Wigan Athletic 2-0, with the winning goal being a controversial second-half penalty. Before that, Wigan had threatened the Red Devils on the counter-attack and looked to have them rocked at some stages.

Newport County have a history of scaring big teams in the FA Cup, having forced a replay against Tottenham in 2018, before forcing Brighton all the way to a penalty shoot-out three years later. So, while they may not prevail against Man United, they command some very good odds to at least score against Erik ten Hag's men.
