23:00, 28 Feb 2023

There’s more FA Cup fifth round action to look forward to on Wednesday night with four more games to go. Here’s everything you need to know about the ties, including where to watch them, what time they kick off and the current betting odds. 

Southampton vs Grimsby Town

When: Wednesday 29th, 7.15pm

Where: St Mary’s 


Match Odds: Southampton (2/7), Draw (9/2), Grimsby (9/1)

The lowest-ranked side left in the FA Cup, Grimsby might well fancy their chances against a Southampton side that look destined to fall through the Premier League trapdoor this season. However, as bad as the Saints have been this term, they have found some solace in the cups.

They reached the semi-finals of the League Cup and overcame Crystal Palace and Blackpool to get to this point. Ruben Selles has been tasked with turning Southampton’s fortunes around and a win here would be a massive confidence boost for both the Spaniard and the club. 

Sportsman Stat: Grimsby last beat Southampton away in 1949. The last meeting between these sides was in 1978. 

Southampton win and over 3.5 goals - 7/4

Burnley vs Fleetwood Town 

When: Wednesday 29th, 7.30pm

Where: Turf Moor

TV: BBC Red Button/BBC iPlayer/BBC website

Match Odds: Burnley (1/4), Fleetwood (11/1), Draw (9/2)

Burnley have been sensational this season and a place in next season’s Premier League looks almost certain, but Fleetwood won’t be afraid of the task ahead of them having ended the runs of Championship QPR and League One high-fliers Sheffield Wednesday. 

Vincent Kompany’s Clarets were taken all the way by another League One outfit, Ipswich Town, in the last round and won’t want to get complacent against an in-form side with four wins from their last five. 

Sportsman Stat: The is the first meeting between these two sides in any competition

Burnley win and over 2.5 goals - 5/6

Manchester United vs West Ham United

When: Wednesday 29th, 7.45pm

Where: Old Trafford


Match Odds: Man United (4/6), West Ham (4/1), Draw (3/1)

If you feel like this tie is giving you deja vu, it’s because these two sides have met each other a whopping 12 times in this competition; the last coming in 2020/21, which Man United won 1-0. It doesn’t look good for David Moyes’ Hammers this time around either with the recent Carabao Cup winners triumphing in 13 of their last 15 FA Cup home ties. 

Sportsman Stat: West Ham have won just one of the last 20 away meetings against Manchester United. 

Marcus Rashford to score first - 3/1

Sheffield United vs Tottenham Hotspur 

When: Wednesday 29th, 7.55pm

Where: Bramall Lane

TV: BBC One/BBC iPlayer/BBC website

Match Odds: Sheffield United (7/2), Tottenham (4/5), Draw (13/5)

Championship Sheffield United look very good value to join Burnley in the Premier League next season and they’ll get an early taste of what life will be like back in the top-flight next season when they take on Tottenham Hotspur at Bramall Lane. Spurs have failed to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals since 2017/18 but, conversely, the Blades have come up short in their last five ties at this stage against Premier League opposition.

Sportsman Stat: This is the first FA Cup meeting between Sheffield United and Tottenham since 1957-58.

Tottenham Hotspur win and both teams to score - 212/5
