FA Cup

The final two FA Cup replays take place tonight between Liverpool and League Two side Exeter City, as well as the all Premiership clash involving Leicester and Spurs.

Liverpool played a completely changed team in Devon with a lot of the under 21's team playing together with a couple of more senior players. I expect a few of the younger players to get the chance again, however with the game being at Anfield I think there will be more experience on show with at least a few of the fringe first eleven starting. I can see Allen, Ibe and Benteke all being involved from the start, and these players together with the better young players should have far too much for the lower league team. There is a chance that a few more a the main players may be involved as the cups look the best bet for Liverpool this year.

In Exeter the difference in class was negated by an absolutely horrible pitch, although the surface at Anfield could be better, it's still plenty good enough to play quick passing football and if they do that I think Exeter will really struggle.

Leicester host Spurs in what should be another great game. The first match finished two all with Spurs equalising late on through a dubiously given penalty. Both managers elected to make several changes in that game and I think there is a good chance the same will happen tonight. Leicester were extremely unlucky not to win the game at White Hart Lane and they will definitely fancy their chances tonight. At a best price of almost 2/1 I think they are an excellent value bet.

Both Holly Bush Henry and Shrewd are in good form and on a winning run, however they have both been hiked considerably in the weights and it will take a big effort from either of them to win here today.

Zaidiyn for Brian Ellison was a good third in a much better race than this last time out and the drop back in class will give an excellent chance of victory. There is still plenty of potential improvement in this useful looking six year old and I think he will take all the beating.
