The Magic of the Cup

This weekend is the 4th round of the FA Cup and we have 3 programmes from the weekend’s fixtures available to purchase on our website. First up is Newcastle United who welcome Watford to St James’s park for the 2nd time in 3 months. The last meeting only 3 weeks ago ended up in a 1-1 draw at Vicarage Road and the previous meeting back in November resulted in Newcastle winning the game 1-0. Newcastle fans will be looking forward to seeing new loan signing Jordan Lukaku playing but we will have to wait and see if he makes the starting line up tomorrow.

Premier League champions Manchester City have a home tie against Burnley on Saturday and will be looking to impress again against them having beaten them 5-0 in the league back in October. With it being the FA CUP no doubt Pep Guardiola will change up his squad from the League cup semi-final only 3 days earlier. You can purchase a copy of the award-winning matchday programme here

Lastly on Sunday Crystal Palace take on Tottenham Hotspur with every possibility of an upset for the home side given the injuries the Spurs squad faces at the current time. The omen’s don’t look good for the Eagles however having lost the last 5 matchdays up between these 2 teams, but they did beat them in the 5th round of the of this competition in 2016 thanks to a Martin Kelly goal. Can they repeat history? You can purchase a copy of the award-winning matchday programme here

We wish good luck to our other sides QPR, Sheffield Wednesday and West Ham United  who face away draw’s in this round.

Once the weekend’s fixtures are completed and the draw is made on Monday night before the Barnet v Brentford match we will know who our teams have in the next round and any potential fixtures will be added to our website from Tuesday morning to purchase.
