Manchester United v Brighton    
Tips Romelu Lukaku to score and Man Utd win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1    Best Bet @ 19 / 5  

The Story So Far

Jose Mourinho's men had been enjoying a three-match winning run before they were stunned by Sevilla in the Champions League in mid-week, losing 2-1 to go crashing out of Europe, and the FA Cup represents their last remaining chance of silverware this season.

The Red Devils have cruised past Derby, Yeovil and Huddersfield without conceding a single goal to reach the last-eight of this competition and they are 2/7 to beat Brighton (Betfair), while Bet Victor go even-money about another win to nil. Brighton are a massive 11/1 after beating Crystal Palace, Middlesbrough and Coventry to reach this stage, although they haven't won a Manchester United v Brighton fixture since 1982.
Match Odds:

Lukaku Loves The FA Cup

The Seagulls were unfortunate to lose 1-0 when they visited Old Trafford in the league earlier this season, with a Lewis Dunk own goal separating the two teams, and they are capable of making life difficult for their more illustrious hosts.

However, United can edge to a valuable win and it is Romelu Lukaku who can guide the home side into the semi-finals. Lukaku has been finding form of late, scoring five goals in six games in all competitions, and he loves playing in the FA Cup.

The Belgian striker has scored in all three of United's FA Cup games so far this term, notching four goals in total, and he boasts an impressive eleven goals from his last eleven appearances in this competition. Lukaku is 31/10 to score first (Unibet) but we prefer the 19/5 with William Hill about Lukaku to score anytime in a 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 win for Manchester United.
