Early exit for Manchester City at Norwich: Jeff Stelling provides his Super 6 FA Cup predictions
Last Updated: 08/01/16 2:47pm
Jeff Stelling provides us with his advice for an FA Cup round of Soccer Saturday Super 6, with £250,000 up for grabs in the free-to-play game.
The Soccer Saturday host thinks there will be a shock at Carrow Road as Norwich host Manchester City, while Sky Bet League 1 side Doncaster could make things very uncomfortable for Mark Hughes' Stoke.
Here's what Jeff makes of the most popular predictions so far...
Arsenal v Sunderland
Most popular prediction: 2-0 (34%)
Jeff says: I'm going to follow the majority and go for a 2-0 win but I think that might be on the conservative side.
We've obviously no idea what starting XI's both sides will go for but I still feel whatever team Arsene Wenger puts out will be good enough to win this one. Sam Allardyce will make wholesale changes with bigger Premier League games coming up.
People say Arsenal haven't won anything but they've won six FA Cups under Wenger and two back-to-back, so that's not too shabby and they can win this even without the likes of Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud.
Jeff predicts: 2-0
Doncaster v Stoke
Most popular prediction: 0-2 (35%)
Jeff says: I think it will be a little closer than that. Stoke have been very disappointing over the last two matches and their flair players just haven't clicked. I think Mark Hughes will be up for this one. He's a serial cup winner and will not want any early exit that's for sure.
Doncaster are making huge strides under Darren Ferguson. They couldn't score a goal before he arrived but have now won eight of their last 12 and in Andy Williams have a man bang in form. I'm sure they will give Stoke something to think about.
Jeff predicts: 1-2
Norwich v Man City
Most popular prediction: 1-2 (31%)
Jeff says: I'm going against the majority here. City just can't shrug off their poor away form. They were lucky not to be dead and buried in the Capital One Cup at Everton. They have now won only one of their last seven away from home and lost four of the last six.
Norwich are improving and are unbeaten in their last five at home and this looks ripe for an upset.
Jeff predicts: 2-1

Southampton v Crystal Palace
Most popular prediction: 1-1 (33%)
Jeff says: Southampton are a real Jekyll and Hyde team. They were brilliant against Arsenal but have been poor since. It's their first match back at St Mary's since that Arsenal win.
Palace are missing Yannick Bolasie hugely with his pace, power and trickery. They've not scored in the last three. Alan Pardew is returning to one of his old club's but I think it will be the hosts who will come out on top.
Jeff predicts: 2-0
Watford v Newcastle
Most popular prediction: 2-1 (29%)
Jeff says: I'm going with the majority on this one.
Newcastle haven't won away in the FA Cup since 2006 and it's difficult to predict what sort of side Steve McClaren will pick for this one with Manchester United in the league in midweek. They have lost their last three 1-0 but performed ever so well against Arsenal last week.
Watford have been irresistible and I don't think Newcastle will be able to cope with the power of Odion Ighalo, Troy Deeney and Almen Abdi.
Jeff predicts: 2-1
West Ham v Wolves
Most popular prediction: 2-0 (33%)
Jeff says: I think this might be more emphatic.
Andy Carroll is approaching the top of his game and in Michail Antonio they have a real handful. They should have far too much for Wolves.
The visitors are on a decent run but are not as good as they were last year and as Championship clubs go are distinctly average.
Jeff predicts: 3-0
