I'm only interested in beating them in the league, if we do that then I don't care if we get tonked in the FA Cup. It's a nothing cup (unless we go far in it )

Nice sentiment but there's no way we play them in any game and don't care about the result. It's impossible. Say it out loud if you like, still won't make a difference.

Yep, I'd hate to field a team of kids and lose to United.

I really wouldn't care. Can't say the same for the kids or the club but really, it's a nothing cup now and doesn't matter a jot to us.

...depending on injuries, we might not be able to anyway.

Who's back for the league game - Matip? Naby?
Both might be able to start against Utd but doubt if either will finish and/or be available the following week for the FA cup game.

Unlikely that Jota will be available before early Feb either...

Matip certainly won't manage Mancs, Burnley, Mancs in 8 days; nor Naby, nor possibly Thiago

78124/1 are the odds for it to happen 7 times in a row but no sure what the odds are for 7 out of 8 draws.

the 78124/1 figure comes from there being a supposed 4/1 chance of a Premier league club drawing another Premier league club in either the 3rd or 4th round, then pumping that into an acca calculator for seven times.

More than a bit loose and fast as a way to get a figure but the odds of it happening the way it has for us have to be pretty massive.

Nice job. Yeah if it it's anywhere in that ballpark then it's dodgy as fuck

Especially when you consider City's draws over the same period

Normally, after a bit of bad form, I'd say this is the ideal game to get back at it, but if Matip isn't fit then we're fucked

Think those odds are over-estimated. 4/1 odds for a PL team drawing a PL team int the 4th is far too high.

There are 4 third rounds draws in that stat so with 64 teams being in the 4th round and us being 1 of them there are 19 chances for us to be drawn against a PL side and 44 to be drawn against a second tier or lower side

In 2017/18 the 4th round fixture have 10 other PL teams in and 21 non PL teams to it was 2/1 we would draw one.
The 5th round tie versus Chelsea last season had 9 other PL teams in and 6 non-PL so would be odds on to happen.
This season there are 13 other PL teams assuming Southampton win their postponed tie v Shrewsbury.
Shrewsbury, our 1 non-PL opponent, were in a draw where the potential split was 14 (PL or 17 (non)

Its high but by no means ridiculous. Its just frustrating to see other teams get the opposite side of the coin.
