This weekend, all eyes in England turn to the FA Cup. For giants like Tottenham, Chelsea, and Manchester United, this is now serious business. All three clubs are now out of the Champions League and have virtually no chance of catching Manchester City for the Premier League title. This is their one chance left to win some hardware this season, so these teams will hold nothing back.
We are down from 737 clubs to the final 16 in the FA Cup. Major clubs like defending champions Arsenal and Liverpool are out of the competition, but other heavyweights like Chelsea, Tottenham, and the two Manchesters remain. At this point, those teams are likely to play their starters the rest of the way. However, the FA Cup is historically known for its upsets, and teams like Hull City and Huddersfield will attempt to keep their dreams alive.
The FA Cup is down to the Round of 16 with three heavyweights remaining in Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea. City will play League One leaders, Wigan Athletic in a rematch of the 2013 final that Wigan won. It didn’t go any better in 2014 for City against Wigan, as City lost in the quarterfinals. It may be different this time around, as City is dominating the Premier League and should be very focused for the FA Cup. City is the favorite to win the FA Cup at odds of +225, while Manchester United is the second choice at odds of +300.
