Dale can use cup to get on a roll in League One

Rochdale v Morecambe

Rochdale are arguably the best team in League One and considering they are sixth in the table, I think they are incredible value to win the division. They are certainly an each-way punt.

First up is an FA Cup first-round replay at home to Morecambe and again I'm surprised they are not a bit shorter.

They are unbeaten in five whereas Morecambe have only won one of their last five, and that was at home to whipping boys Barnet.

Leicester v Liverpool

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Both teams have scored in four of the last six meetings
Expert verdict
There are likely to be goals in this clash with both sides conceding nine goals from their opening five league games. It was honours even last season with Leicester winning 3-1 at home and the Reds winning 4-1 at Anfield, and something similar could be on the cards in this contest. Both teams have scored in four of the last six meetings and there have been three goals or more in five of the last eight league contests. Even with Sadio Mane suspended Liverpool should give the Foxes a serious test. However, in the home ranks, Jamie Vardy will be desperate for a run at this dodgy Liverpool rearguard.
