Expert football pundit and analyst Andy Gray was on the ball with an 11/1 double and 5/1 treble in the last round in the FA Cup. He’s joined The Paddy Power Blog to give his insight on Sunday’s fourth-round matches.

Brentford v Chelsea, Sunday, Live ESPN, Noon

I’m really looking forward to this game and I think Uwe Rosler has done a magnificent job at Brentford. The Bees will do really well to hang onto him in the longer term and this will be a test for Chelsea. Rafa Benitez’ side looked a bit limp against Swansea and will want to get that semi-final exit out of their system.  Brentford were beaten last week which was their first defeat in about 15 games but the visitors should have enough in their locker to see this out.

The FA Cup is Chelsea’s only real option of silverware domestically this season and they’ll want to be in the fifth round draw.

Leeds v Tottenham Hotspur, Sunday, Live ESPN, 2pm

If Leeds turn up with all guns blazing they can give Spurs a real game of it at Elland Road. But they have to iron out the inconsistencies in their play. The put Everton out of the Capital One Cup earlier in the season so they are dangerous on their day. But Spurs should have too much quality for them. Spurs at 8/11 with Paddy Power are my fancy to win this. 

Oldham v Liverpool, Sunday, ITV1, 4pm

Liverpool are going well at the moment but it depends what side Brenda Rodgers puts out. He almost paid the penalty in the last round against Mansfield and just scraped through 2-1. If he plays one of his strongest sides I think they’ll win well. But if he rests some big players then Oldham may have a chance. Daniel Sturridge will want to play and improve his fitness and has scored three goals in his last three games and you wouldn’t bet against him scoring at 3/1 in Paddy Power’s first goalscorer market.
