THE Zapsportz team cannot see too many major upsets in the FA Cup Fourth Round, but former cup winner Glenn Hoddle does predict a defeat for Manchester City at Crystal Palace.

Harry Harris, meanwhile, is going for a City away win and a comfortable passage to round five. I think they’ll need a replay to progress so I’m predicting an entertaining 2-2 draw.

Of the Premier League clubs still in the competition, it could be an awkward weekend for the likes of Leicester – who face in-form Derby this evening – Watford and Hull.

A Sutton United win at home to a rejuvenated Leeds would be the result of the round and stir memories of their 1989 FA Cup third round shock victory over 1987 cup winners Coventry.

But even the romantic in us cannot see that happening – nor can we see too many shocks over the next few days. But, as we have witnessed in the past, with the FA Cup you just never know.

Check out all our Fourth Round predictions. And have a go yourselves.
