bet365 Football Betting Show: FA Cup quarter-finals featuring Man Utd v Liverpool & Man City v Newcastle

Sam Matterface and Steve Freeth take a look ahead to the FA Cup quarter-finals which include a derby match between Man Utd and Liverpool and the meeting of Man City and Newcastle.

FA Cup

To Win Outright

Red Devils to face in-form Liverpool

The tie of the round in the FA Cup quarter-finals undoubtedly comes from Old Trafford, with famous rivals Manchester United and Liverpool locking horns for a place in the Wembley semi-finals.

The FA Cup represents Erik ten Hag's side's last chance of winning silverware this season, in stark contrast to Liverpool who remain in the hunt for an unprecedented quadruple of trophies after securing the EFL Cup in February.

Man Utd head into this match in decent form, whilst visitors Liverpool have only lost once in their last 20 matches both domestically and in Europe.

The Reds could welcome back Mohamed Salah into their starting XI following a spell on the sidelines with a hamstring problem, but Liverpool do have problems defensively with Alisson and Trent Alexander-Arnold still out of action.

You can get odds of 11/5 for Liverpool to win and both teams to score at Old Trafford.

Citizens host trophy-starved Magpies

FA Cup holders Manchester City are still in the hunt for a remarkable double treble, with Pep Guardiola's side in contention to win England's primary domestic cup, the Premier League and the Champions League.

The Citizens face a tricky quarter-final tie in the FA Cup, however, with visitors to the Eithad Newcastle desperate to end a 69-year wait for a trophy.

The last time the Magpies won a trophy, the FA Cup in 1955, it was Manchester City they beat in the final, with club legend Jackie Millburn scoring the opening goal in a 3-1 win for the Geordies at the old Wembley.

Newcastle will hope this memory is a positive omen ahead of their quarter-final clash with City as Howe's charges bid to book a place in the FA Cup semi-finals for the first time since 2005.

The Magpies are given odds of 9/2 to qualify for the last four and a place at Wembley.

Chelsea take on Foxes in repeat of 2021 final

The FA Cup quarter-final meeting of Chelsea and Leicester City will mark a repeat of the 2021 final, with the Foxes coming prevailing 1-0 that day courtesy of a memorable long range strike from Belgian Youri Tielemans.

Chelsea and Leicester have experienced contrasting domestic campaigns thus far, with the Londoners languishing in mid-table in the Premier League whilst Enzo Maresca's Foxes lead the way in the Championship.

These two sides may therefore have different priorities ahead of this quarter-final meeting, with the FA Cup representing Chelsea's last hope of silverware under Mauricio Pochettino this season whilst Leicester's main focus will be on securing promotion back to the Premier League.

Chelsea are priced at 6/1 to win their ninth FA Cup trophy this year.

Underdogs chase Wembley dream

There will be at least one unfancied team taking their place in the FA Cup semi-finals this year with the quarter-finals draw pairing Wolves with Championship outfit Coventry City.

Wolves have gone well under Gary O'Neil so far this season, with the Midlands club sitting comfortably in mid-table, but the four-time FA Cup winners do have significant injury issues as they prepare to face Coventry with the likes of Pedro Neto and Matheus Cunha currently unavailable.

Eighth-placed Championship side Coventry will be dreaming of a place at Wembley and the Sky Blues head into this FA Cup last eight clash in decent form having won six of their last nine games in all competitions.

Premier League outfit Wolves are 11/1 to go all the way and win the FA Cup this season.
