Key Details

FA Cup 2017 has already created history by witnessing Sutton United and Lincoln City in the fifth round of the competition. While the former has never appeared at this stage in its history, Lincoln City were last seen at this stage 115 years ago. This is the first time two non-league teams are left in the fifth round of the competition. Lincoln City are awaiting a massive payday when they travel to Burnley, while Sutton are at home to play against 12-time winners Arsenal. Here are some of the standout fixtures as per the FA Cup odds:

Burnley vs Lincoln City

As one of the two non-league teams left in the competition, Lincoln City will be making a difficult trip to Turf Moor. Burnley have an excellent record at home, and they recently managed a 1-1 draw in the game with Premier League leaders Chelsea.

Huddersfield Town vs Manchester City

FA Cup predictions are expecting Manchester City to focus heavily on the cup competitions with the possibility of the league title slipping away. An away game against a Championship outfit represents a potential banana skin for Pep Guardiola’s team.

Fulham vs Tottenham

This match will be fiercely contested as it is a London derby. Fulham may be in the Championship, but football betting tips are expecting a tough game from Jokanovic’s men, who have won twice in the last three games. Tottenham, meanwhile, suffered a damaging blow to the hopes for the title after a 2-0 defeat against Liverpool.

Wolves vs Chelsea

The Premier league title may be firmly on the minds of Chelsea, but Conte’s men will also focus on the FA Cup. A game against relegation-threatened Championship outfit Wolves represents an ideal opponent with the latter likely to be focused on the league.

Sutton United vs Arsenal

Arsenal have won the FA Cup an incredible 12 times, a record shared with Manchester United, but they are up against an unlikely opposition in the fifth round – Sutton United. Even though the game does not provide a big payday, the FA Cup 2017 predictions non-league outfit are expected to put up a fight.

Crystal Palace will go to Spurs for an incredible affair at White Hart Lane. Tottenham look very tempting at a price of 8.00 to lift their 1st FA Cup since a whopping 1991. But we need to mention that Mauricio Pochettino's team has one of the best defences in the top flight.
