The FA Cup third-round replays continue in earnest on Wednesday evening and we bring you our full match previews and betting tips ahead of the action.

BBC One provide full coverage of what could prove to be the stand-out match of the evening with Norwich City looking to cause an upset by dumping reigning Premier League champions Chelsea out of the competition at Stamford Bridge. The two sides could only manage a dismal goal-less draw at Carrow Road in the original tie, however we expect more in the way of excitement when the sides meet on Wednesday evening. The question is, who - if anyone - will come out on top?

Swansea City are struggling in this season's Premier League campaign and while they managed a decent enough point at Newcastle United last time out, they remain rooted to the foot of the Premier League table as things stand. They have a pretty tough assignment on Wednesday evening when they lock horns with a Wolverhampton Wanderers side which are flying high at the top of the Championship table and we expect a closely-fought affair at the Liberty Stadium.

Wigan Athletic are three points clear at the top of League One and they can consider themselves unlucky not to be in the fourth round of the FA Cup with Premier League side AFC Bournemouth managing an equaliser in the second minute of stoppage time in the original third-round tie at Dean Court. Nevertheless, the Latics will be hopeful of going one better in front of their home fans on Wednesday evening and they are certain to give the Cherries a run for their money.

The big question is, who will be the winners and losers on Wednesday evening? Here's what we think...
