Can Wolves repeat FA Cup win against Manchester United?

The Christmas decorations may be coming down but it's FA Cup third-round weekend and that means replays aplenty of Ronnie Radford's 35-yard screamer against Newcastle United. There were some huge shocks at this stage last season with non-league Barnet winning at Sheffield United while Newport County memorably did for Leicester City, and we've got all the best betting angles covered.

Running total: -£11.52

The Banker

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is right to be wary of Wolves as he takes his Manchester United side to the Black Country on Saturday evening. Back in March Wolves produced a truly scintillating second-half display to stun the Red Devils and reach their first FA Cup semifinal for 21 years on an unforgettable night at Molineux.

Both teams are expected to make changes but Wolves look worth a go here at 7/5 having shown in beating Manchester City recently they fear nobody on home soil. For Solskjaer and United it feels like one step forward and two steps back at the moment. Defeat against Watford was followed up with two encouraging wins over the festive period, only for his side to be ripped to shreds during a shocking first half against Arsenal on Wednesday night. The uncertainty surrounding Paul Pogba won't be helping, and should they slip out of the FA Cup here the pressure on Solskjaer will be cranked up again.

Wolves will harbour ambitions of a top four finish themselves this season and are going well in the Europa League, but should still be focused on the job in hand and 7/5 about a home win looks decent.

Selection: £5 on Wolves to win at 7/5 with bet365.

The First Goal Flutter

All eyes will be on Anfield on Sunday as Liverpool host Everton. With Liverpool flying at the top of the table and still at large in the Champions League this game somehow feels like a bigger deal for the Toffees.

Jurgen Klopp has hinted he may throw new signing Takumi Minamino straight into the fray in Sunday's Merseyside derby and the Japan international is a 6/1 chance with bet365 to open the scoring. However we wouldn't rule out Carlo Ancelotti's side -- who are 7/2 outsiders -- springing a shock here and Dominic Calvert-Lewin looks big at 10/1 to score first.

The Everton youngster has been in good goal-scoring form since Carlo Ancelotti arrived at Goodison and looks a big price to score first against a Liverpool side that is unlikely to be full strength.

Selection: £2 on Calvert-Lewin to score first at 10/1 with bet365.

The Tasty Treble

Mikel Arteta claimed a first victory as Arsenal boss against Manchester United and will be looking to keep the momentum going when the Gunners face Leeds United on Monday evening. After recording their first clean sheet at the Emirates in three months on Wednesday night the North London giants look a fair price at 3/5 to beat a Leeds side whose sole aim this season will be promotion back to the Premier League.

Chelsea are huge favourites to overcome Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup but both teams to score in that one looks the shout at 19/20. Forest are flying high in the Championship and could spring a shock at Stamford Bridge if Frank Lampard's men fail to show them the respect they deserve.

Finally add in Newcastle to beat Rochdale at 11/20. Toon fans have been critical of Newcastle's attitude towards the cups during Mike Ashley's ownership but Steve Bruce - a Geordie himself - has promised a change in the way he approaches cup competitions. With Newcastle doing brilliantly in the Premier League that should mean the Magpies send out a strong side at Spotland and do a job on lowly Rochdale. The FA Cup treble is paying a little under 4/1 with bet365 and looks tasty.

Selection: £4 on the treble at 3.83/1 with bet365.

The Euro Wager

Benfica lead the way in Portugal after 14 matches and they look worthy 4/5 favourites when they take on Guimaraes on Saturday night. Pizzi and Carlos Vinicius are top scorers in the Portuguese Primeira Liga having bagged 21 goals between them so far this season and Benfica's superior firepower should help them to another precious away win.

Selection: £5 on Benfica to win at 4/5 with bet365.

The Wildcard Tip

Middlesbrough are on a roll having won four games in a row and look big at better than 4/1 to see off Tottenham on Teesside. Spurs picked up just four points from a possible 12 over the festive period and Jose Mourinho -- who will be without the injured Harry Kane -- may well choose to prioritise Champions League qualification over a decent FA Cup run.

Selection: £2 on Middlesbrough to win at 17/4 with bet365.
