OddsFulham  23/20, Draw 5/2, Leeds 23/10

With 39 points on the board, Fulham's Premier League survival is almost guaranteed and their current squad may look at this season's FA Cup as a chance to win the club's first-ever domestic cup competition.

They are aiming to reach the quarter-finals for the first time since 2010 and face a Leeds side with contrasting priorities.

The West Yorkshire club moved out of the Premier League's bottom three thanks to Saturday's 1-0 win over Southampton and new boss Javi Gracia has pedigree in this competition.

Gracia guided Watford to the final in 2019 but Premier League survival, not winning the club's second-ever FA Cup, is his key objective for the next three months.

With a trip to a vulnerable Chelsea side to ponder on Saturday, he faces a dilemma: go strong with selection to maintain momentum or rest his big names to keep them fresh?

It will be intriguing either way and, after Leeds' wins over Cardiff and Accrington and Fulham's triumph against Hull and Sunderland, this will be the first time either has faced a fellow Premier League side in this season's competition.

A Cottagers' Anytime Goalscorer to watch could be defender Layvin Kurzawa, who is 11/1 to grab a third goal of the competition.

The Frenchman could have a say on a rare start for Marco Silva's men, who are unbeaten in six in all competitions and are 23/20 to beat a team who have won only once away in the Premier League this season.

OddsStoke  11/2, Draw 10/3, Brighton  1/2

Brighton had the weekend off due to Newcastle contesting the EFL Cup final and return to action with a challenging game against an unpredictable Stoke side.

The Potters have won two and lost two of their last four games to leave them 17th in the Championship but the FA Cup provides some respite and they have looked good in wins over Hartlepool and Stevenage.

With a tough run against promotion candidates Sunderland, Blackburn, Middlesbrough and Norwich to come, Stoke may see this game as a chance to build momentum.

Brighton, though, are genuine contenders to win this competition, as demonstrated by beating holders Liverpool in the fourth round and will fancy their chances.

That said, the Seagulls have kept just one away clean sheet since August in all competitions, doing so in going out of the EFL Cup on penalties to League One Charlton.

An away win and Yes in Result/Both Teams to Score looks a solid offering at 12/5 and a Stoke player to watch could be Jacob Brown, who has netted in both of his side's ties and is 9/2 as an Anytime Goalscorer.

Foxes to grind it out

OddsLeicester 2/5, Draw 15/4, Blackburn 7/1

Defeats to Manchester United and Arsenal have seen Leicester slump back into the relegation dogfight and Saturday's teatime trip to Southampton has become a huge game for Brendan Rodgers' side.

The Foxes won this competition under the Northern Irishman in 2021 and, despite their struggles in the league, remain the type of team that can pick up a result against anyone.

To date, they have beaten both Gillingham and Walsall 1-0 and a repeat Correct Score when they host Blackburn on Tuesday is 13/2.

Rovers beat Norwich by the same scoreline in the third round and, after an initial 2-2 draw in the fourth round against Birmingham, edged another 1-0 in extra time at St Andrew's.

Saturday's 3-1 victory at Queens Park Rangers made it three wins in a row, lifting them to fourth in the Championship table.

However, they have lost on the road to three of the current bottom five in the Championship and may also have priorities elsewhere.

Rodgers tends to make changes for this competition but still has good depth within his squad and Leicester and No in the Result/Both Teams to Score market appeals at 5/4.
