FA CUP UNITED CAN JOIN CHELSEA IN LAST 8

UNITED CAN JOIN CHELSEA IN LAST 8

17th February 2018

The FA Cup has a familair look about it. Chelsea and Leicester marched into the last eight on Friday beating Hull and Sheff United. Manchester United, Tottenham and Man City look set to join them.

If Brighton beat Coventry (1/3 shots) and Swansea see off Championship side Sheff Weds, (5/4 shots) then it will be an all Premier League last eight - West Brom face Southampton in the pther tie.

So much for shocks.

United face a trip to Huddersfield on the back of a poor performance at Newcastle last time. But that 1-0 defeat masks the true story. Newcastle's new keeper had a blinder and the United strike force missed a bagful. Paul Pogba had a shocker and Morhino was gracious in defeat for once.

We don't expect a repeat of the 2-1 league defeat at the John Smiths and United can land odds of 1/2.

Tottenham will have more to fear from the relaid pitch at Spotland for the clash with Rochdale on Sunday and City can be expected to beat Wigan on Monday.

We all hope for a shock or two but hard to see where this weekend.
