Michael Lintorn picks out in-play trends in the three less high-profile televised FA Cup fifth round ties...
"Everton have won 10, drawn one and lost just one of the 12 Premier League fixtures that they charged 1-0 ahead in, while Swansea have won seven and drawn two of their nine."
Saturday 12:45, Sunderland v Southampton, BT Sport 1
After a few breathless contests early in Gus Poyet's Sunderland reign, things have calmed recently. Starting with the second leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final at Old Trafford - which Man United led 1-0 after 90 minutes - the first team to score have won the last five games that they competed in to nil. Additionally, only three goals were added to the 1-0 scorelines across all of those encounters. Southampton have shown a skill for maximising leads on the road, triumphing without concession on six of the last eight occasions that they have assumed a 1-0 advantage away to a Premier League foe. The advice therefore is to back whichever side nets first in the win and clean sheet markets.
Sunday 13:30, Everton v Swansea, ITV
Goodison Park should host a Corinthian-flavoured "next goal wins" affair on Sunday: all five Premier League showdowns between Everton and Swansea - besides the one that ended goalless - were won by the first team to notch. Enhancing the prospects of the pattern continuing in this FA Cup tie is the fact that both have been prolific at converting 1-0 leads into three points this season. Everton have won 10, drawn one and lost just one of the 12 Premier League fixtures that they charged ahead in, while Swansea have won seven and drawn two of their nine. It is subsequently wise to back whoever bags the opener to secure the quarter-final spot: Everton are 1.635/8 pre-match favourites.
Monday 19:45, Brighton v Hull, BT Sport 1
Goals in Hull games come in very specific time slots: either right at the start or in the final half hour. There have been 13 successful strikes in their last eight clashes but none arrived between minutes 17 and 55. By contrast, there were four in the first 16 and nine in the final 35. Brighton share Hull's fondness for a low score - their Championship goal-per-match average is a divisional low of 1.9, while the Tigers' 2.15 is the Premier League's second slimmest. The Seagulls' last seven league fixtures yielded only eight goals, and none of them during the 17-55 minute goal amnesty, so back the appropriate unders bet at the start of that window, with a view to trading at its conclusion.
