With the third round of the 2018/19 FA Cup all but completed, we can start to make predictions as to which team is most likely to win this year’s most famous domestic football cup competition.
The most shocking exit so far was that of Liverpool, who lost to Wolves 2-1. This potentially allows at least three other top four contenders to claim some silverware this season.
The team that most often needs proof to cast away the doubters is Tottenham. With Mauricio Pochettino heading into his fifth of management this month, both he and his Spurs players will want to prove a few of the more vocal doubters wrong by finally lifting some silverware, with either the League Cup or the FA Cup still up for grabs.
Manchester City are favourites for a reason and Pep Guardiola, fond of English football’s history, will want to lift the FA Cup on a personal level. With Liverpool’s exit – a notoriously strong cup side – there are plenty of odds available for punters at many www.bettingsites.ltd.
Chelsea are the only team not to have drawn any other side from the Premier League for the fourth round, with City facing Burnley, Spurs playing away at Crystal Palace and Manchester United playing away against Arsenal. It will give Maurizio Sarri’s men a confidence boost as they aim to win silverware in the Italian’s maiden campaign.
Predictions for the FA Cup:
Manchester City – winners
Tottenham – finalists
Chelsea – Semi-finalists
Manchester United – Semi-finalists
