The world’s oldest cup competition continues apace this weekend, with clubs now starting to dream of a trip to Wembley.

The fifth-round sees the last remaining 16 teams in the FA Cup go at it with a place in the quarter-final at stake.

Our tipster has run through some of the best selections to help you #betbigwinbig this weekend on the FA Cup.

Millwall v Leicester

The FA Cup is all about shocks, and the biggest candidate might be Premier League champions Leicester City away at Millwall.

Leicester are yet to win a league game in 2017 — or score a goal in the league. Manager Claudio Ranieri is under massive pressure, remarkable considering his achievements of last year.

With a crunch Champions League knock-out game against Sevilla next week, Ranieri might rest some of his underperforming players, which gives a real chance to the form side in League 1.

Millwall are unbeaten since December, and have won four of their last five games — which included a win over Premier League Watford in the last round.

They haven’t conceded in that run, and a Millwall win at 2.89 looks a really good bet.

If you really want to back the Lions, back their 4.26 to win to nil with Sportsbet.io.

Wolves v Chelsea

Premier League leaders Chelsea face a potential banana skin at Championship Wolves on Saturday evening.

Wolves beat Liverpool at Anfield in the last round, and certainly have the ability to frustrate Chelsea’s vaunted attacking talents.

The Blues aren’t involved in European competition, so don’t have a match mid-week, though they may take the opportunity to rest a few of their first teamers.

That will, however, give a chance to the likes to Cesc Fabregas and Willian — not bad replacements to bring in.

Chelsea dispatched lower league Peterborough and Brentford comfortably in the previous two rounds, and I don’t think they’ll have too much trouble here.

Much of Wolves’ game-plan will be based around preventing Chelsea scoring, and I can’t see them finding a way through at the other end.

I like Sportsbet.io’s 2.14 for Chelsea to win to nil.

Fulham v Tottenham

Another chance for an upset might be at Craven Cottage, where Fulham host London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs have been in an iffy run of form, having lost against Liverpool last weekend and at Gent in the Europa League on Thursday.

Fulham on the other hand have been in a fine run, with four wins from their last five. They hammered Premier League Hull in the last round and will certainly fancy their chances over a Tottenham side likely to rest a few players.

I think the Cottagers could sneak this one — and at the price of 4.08 with Sportsbet.io it’s certainly worth a punt.

The last two games at Craven Cottage have both finished 3–2, and there might be goals again on Sunday.

Over 4.5 goals is 4.19 with the same firm — and another 3–2 scoreline is a very tempting 36.79.
