Spurs odds cut after quarter-final draw

Of the sides contesting for favouritism – Tottenham were the biggest movers with the bookmakers following the draw for the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Tottenham were handed a home draw with League One Millwall and they have the most straight forward route into the semi-finals, as things stand.

The undoubted tie of the round will see Jose Mourinho return to Chelsea with his Manchester United side and as a result both teams have seen their odds lengthen. Chelsea to as long as 4/1 in places with United 6/1.

Manchester City remain firm at around 10/3 and they are favourites despite the fact they need to replay against Huddersfield – after which point they would be due to travel to Middlesbrough should they make it through. Boro are 20/1 at the most, whilst with Huddersfield you can get 100/1 on.

The two non-league clubs left in the draw, could actually face each other. Lincoln’s reward for their brilliant triumph over Burnley on Saturday is a trip to either Conference National rivals Sutton United or Arsenal. Lincoln stand firm at 100/1 whilst Arsenal are third favourites at 9/2. Sutton are the outsiders overall at 750/1.

FA Cup quarter-final draw:
Chelsea v Manchester United
Middlesbrough v Huddersfield Town or Manchester City
Tottenham Hotspur v Millwall
Sutton United or Arsenal v Lincoln City


Our Football Insider Graeme Bailey gave us his reaction to the draw and said: “It is a fascinating draw, with stories everywhere.

“The two non-league sides could get each other, whilst the undoubted tie of the round is Man United at Chelsea.

“But if you look closely we could get two derbies in the semis with the prospect of having Tottenham, Arsenal, United and City in the final four.

“One thing is for sure, we have had one of the most romantic FA Cups in recent history but still the likelihood is that the semi-finals will be contested by four from the top-six in the Premier League.”
