More Meadow misery for Moyes

842

West Ham boss David Moyes could suffer another FA Cup shock at Shrewsbury on Sunday – almost 15 years to the day that his Everton side were humbled at Gay Meadow.

On that occasion the Shrews were 80 places below Everton but now, having moved grounds in 2007, they are flying high in League One and will fancy their chances of upsetting the Hammers at the New Meadow.

Paul Hurst’s team are unbeaten in their last five games and have only conceded 15 goals in their first 25 League One matches.

Goalkeeper Joe Hart could return to the Hammers’ starting line-up after being dropped in favour of Adrian recently and he will be keen to do well against his former club.

West Ham are 6/4 to keep a clean sheet while Shrewsbury are 57/20 to beat their top-flight opponents.

For the first time in 67 years, there will be no non-league club in the third round, with Yeovil the lowest-ranked team left in the competition. The Glovers are 17/4 to beat Bradford City on Saturday.

Luton beat Yeovil 8-2 on the opening weekend of the League Two campaign and Nathan Jones’ side will be keen to put on a good show at Newcastle.

The Hatters have scored 62 goals in their first 26 league matches although they may field a weakened side at St James’ Park as they focus on securing promotion.

Newcastle should have enough quality to win the game but it may be worth betting on the Magpies winning from behind at 11/2.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been in charge of the Gunners since September 1996 while Sunday’s opponents, Nottingham Forest, who axed boss Mark Warburton last week, have had 12 permanent managers in that time.

Arsenal should win at the City Ground, even with a reserve team line-up, and Theo Walcott is 5/1 to score the first goal in the match.
