FA Cup Quarter-finals - Previews & Betting Tips



Saturday 27th June - Sunday 28th June. 

Kick-off: Various (UK).

FA Cup.

How to watch the FA Cup: BBC One and BT Sport 1 

The quarter-finals of the FA Cup are here this weekend after a long wait with all the teams left in the competition being Premier League sides.

Norwich City vs Manchester United

Saturday 27th June, 17:10, BBC One

Things haven’t improved for Norwich since the restart in the Premier League. They’ve lost at home to both Southampton and Everton and are heavy favourites to be playing Championship football next season. Results have been better in the FA Cup as they achieved a penalty shootout win over Tottenham in the previous round. Manchester United have been pretty solid in their last two games as they drew away to Tottenham and then won comfortably 3-0 against Sheffield United on Wednesday evening. They recorded another easy win over Derby in the previous round to reach the quarter-finals, and they head into this match as the firm favourites to progress. 

Betting tip: Anthony Martial scored a hat-trick against Sheffield United on Wednesday, and he’s at 21/20 to grab another goal against Norwich.

Sheffield United vs Arsenal

Sunday 28th June, 12.30, BT Sport 1 

These two teams have quite a bit of history in the FA Cup. The 1999 tie resulted in Arsenal offering a replay when Marc Overmars scored a controversial winner after an opposing player was receiving treatment. Their 2003 semi-final saw Arsenal eke out a 1-0 win at Old Trafford after what is regarded by some as the greatest save ever from David Seaman. Arsenal have suffered a drastic decline since those days and even find themselves behind Sheffield United in the Premier League table. The Blades defeated the Gunners at Bramall Lane earlier in the season and will be confident to do so again. However, both sides have looked sluggish since the restart although Arsenal did manage their first win over Southampton on Thursday.

Betting tip: Arsenal to follow up their win at Southampton with another victory at odds of 11/8.

Leicester City vs Chelsea

Sunday 28th June, 15.30, BT Sport 1

This is certainly the highest quality match of the round with the pair being 3rd and 4th in the league. They’ve drawn the previous three against each other, so there’s almost nothing to split them. Leicester have only managed two draws against Watford and Brighton since the restart — suggesting that they’re finding it difficult to get up to speed. Chelsea have won their previous two matches including an impressive 2-1 home defeat of Manchester City which handed Liverpool the title.

Betting tip: Chelsea to win at 29/20.

Newcastle United vs Manchester City

Sunday 28th June, 18.10, BBC One

Newcastle managed a draw and a win in their previous two games against Man City at St. James Park, however, City still remain the strong favourites for this one. Both sides progressed to the quarter-finals without facing a Premier League team, but Newcastle did need extra-time to defeat Oxford in round 4. Newcastle will have to defend resolutely to reach the semi-final, and they know from the H2H that they are capable of stifling City.   

Betting tip: 2-3 total goal bands at 23/20.
