Do not adjust your Television sets on Saturday teatime, it won’t be a recording of Aston Villa v West Brom you are witnessing from a few days prior, the west Midlands derby really will be live and Ladbrokes have it covered.
The way the FA Cup cookie crumbled this season has given Villa and West Brom a second chance to settle scores just five days apart and this time it’s a place in the last four rather than Premier League points at stake.

The bookmakers have enhanced the odds on Villa striker Christian Benteke and Baggies hotshot Saido Berahinoto to both be on target in the match from 7/1 out to a whopping 10/1.
With the pair already the market leaders to notch at any time in the 90 minutes for their clubs – at 2/1 and 19/10 respectively – this really is a double worth a dabble.
Benteke arrives fresh from delivering Tim Sherwood a first win of his tenure thanks to coolly tucking away a last-gasp penalty.
Although the four-goal Belgian has scratched around for form this season, he’ll be intent on using that spot kick as a stepping stone to regular scoresheet troubling.
Before getting injured last season the former Genk man scored his goals in bursts and with three of his four arriving in front of his own fans this term, there really is no better Villa candidate.
As for Berahino, fresh superlatives to describe the West Brom ace are in shorter supply than wellies in the desert.
The joint top scorer in the FA Cup (5) put away the equaliser in typically clinical fashion a few days ago and is now searching for a fifth goal in six all competition games.
Somebody grab the fire extinguisher.
