FA Cup 4th Round Draw

The 4th round of the FA Cup draw has given the giant-killers a real opportunity to shine. City, United and Tottenham have all been drawn against lower league opposition and will be hoping to avoid humiliation.

City are currently 3/1 to win the competition and United are a bit higher at 4/1. Both sides are still in multiple competitions but with United well behind City in the League, the competition could take on added importance for them. United are still the only English team that has completed The Treble and their local rivals will be hoping to replicate what they achieved in 1999.

Liverpool may have just lost Phillipe Coutinho to Barcelona but they still have a squad that will believe they can go all the way. There remains an element of doubt their defence, despite the signing of Virgil Van Dijk, and many teams will know they can cause them problems.

You can get odds, with Paddy Power, of 11/2 that Tottenham will win the competition for the first since 1991. With their home games being played at Wembley this season, they could well have the advantage if they get to the Semi Final and Final. Chelsea are at 6/1, both sides may see the competition as their best chance of success this season.

If you fancy an outsider to win the competition, Leicester are currently at 20/1 to have some Wembley glory at the end of the season. They are well clear of any relegation troubles and can fully focus on winning this trophy.

No team from outside the top flight has won the competition since 1980. If you believe this could happen for the first time in 38 years. Current Championship leaders Wolves are currently 66/1 to win the cup, this may entice more than just loyal fans of the Molineux club.
