FA Cup winner: Punters backing ‘Manchester City to defend title’



The FA Cup provided a welcome break for several Premier League sides over the weekend, with most managers giving their players a much-deserved rest after a hectic festive period.

The likes of holders Manchester City eased past Port Vale, with Liverpool beating Merseyside rivals Everton.

Several Premier League sides including Chelsea, Leicester, Southampton and Burnley all made it through to the fourth round as they look to have a good run in the famous competition.

But who will go on to lift the prestigious trophy at Wembley in May?

Chelsea are available at 8/1 to do just that.

Leicester and Southampton can be backed at 9/1 and 66/1 respectively to go all the way. And Burnley are currently 100/1 to lift the trophy.

Jurgen Klopp’s men face Shrewsbury in round four, and are available at 7/2 to go on and win the entire competition.

Bournemouth and West Ham also progressed to the next stages. They are 100/1 and 33/1 respectively to end their season on a high with the prestigious trophy.

The Cherries will meet Arsenal in the next round having beaten Luton. The Gunners are currently 12/1 to go on and win the tournament after beating Leeds in round three.

But, as ever, the magic of the FA Cup provided some shocks. Premier League sides Aston Villa and Brighton fell to Fulham and Sheffield Wednesday respectively, while Rochdale earned a replay with Newcastle.

The League One side clinched a 1-1 draw thanks to 40-year-old Aaron Wilbraham’s equaliser. The winners of that tie face Oxford United in the fourth round. 

It’s currently 100/1 for the Magpies to recover and win the competition. And it’s 500/1 for Rochdale to upset all the odds and lift the trophy.

Sheffield Wednesday are available at 250/1 to continue their cup run all the way to the final and eventually lift the trophy.

Pep Guardiola’s side have been drawn against Fulham, and are available at 15/8 to go on and defend the trophy. The Championship side are 300/1 to beat City and go all the way.

Another League One side in Tranmere Rovers also earned a replay against top-flight opposition thanks to their stunning comeback at Watford. They came back from three-nil down to tie the game 3-3.

Nigel Pearson’s side are currently 100/1 to go on and win the FA Cup. And Tranmere are 500/1 to achieve the impossible.

Manchester United and Wolves also remain in the hat after their stalemate. They’ll face the winners of the Watford game, with the Red Devils currently 16/1 to go on and win the entire tournament.

Wolves are available at 33/1 to lift the trophy in May.

The fourth round games will be played between Friday 24 and Monday 27 January.
