Manchester City are 6/4 favourites for the FA Cup after Arsenal victory.

A fine finish from Nathan Ake was enough to see City defeat Premier League rivals Arsenal in the FA Cup, setting up a fifth round tie away at Championship Bristol City.

The full draw was made prior to West Ham’s 2-0 victory away at Derby, a result that secured a tie against Manchester United in the next round. The Old Trafford clash, and the remaining fifth round fixtures will take place between Monday 27th February and Thursday 2nd March.

Wrexham of the National League will get a dream fifth round tie against Tottenham Hotspur if they can defeat Sheffield United in their FA Cup replay next week.

The Red Dragons, co-owned by Hollywood duo Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney - are the only non-league side left in the competition but they were denied a famous win on Sunday evening at the Racecourse Ground as Sheffield United scored a late equaliser in a 3-3 thriller.

Everton 66/1 to win next two games following Sean Dyche appointment

Relegation-threatened Everton have been priced up at 66/1 to win their next two Premier League games against Arsenal and Liverpool.

It will be a real baptism of fire for Dyche, who was appointed as manager on Monday afternoon, as he has just over a week to prepare his side for the visit of runaway league leaders Arsenal, before the short trip across Stanley Park to face Liverpool.

It’s an unenviable task for the former Burnley boss, especially when you consider his new side’s record at Anfield. 

Everton have managed just one win at the home of their arch rivals this century, and that was the behind-closed-doors clash during Liverpool’s injury-plagued 2020/21 campaign when the Reds started with a central defensive pairing of Jordan Henderson and Ozan Kabak.

bet365’s Steve Freeth said: “Goodison Park has been a graveyard for some high-profile managers in recent times, and Sean Dyche is the latest to try and turn around the fortunes of Everton Football Club.

“The Toffees’ odds for relegation have plummeted with one point from the last seven games and he’s been dealt a stinker of a start with Arsenal at home and Liverpool away, and we’re odds-on about it being one point from the last nine.”

The Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles are set to face off in Super Bowl LVII after coming through their respective conference championships on a tense Sunday of playoff football.

The story of the Eagles victory unfolded early in the first quarter when Niners' starting QB Brock Purdy suffered an elbow injury on a strip-sack and only returned to action when his fourth-string replacement Josh Johnson suffered a suspected concussion on the opening drive of the second half.

The Eagles, 10/13 to win Super Bowl LVII, benefitted from a missed call by the officials for their first touchdown.

But there was nothing fluky about their eventual 31-7 success that sets up a meeting with former coach Andy Reid and his 11/10 Kansas City Chiefs next month.

The Eagles' physicality was the key to their victory as the defensive front four took advantage of some peculiar blocking assignments from the Niners to record three sacks and force three fumbles.

The Kansas City Chiefs exacted revenge on the Cincinnati Bengals by closing out another tight AFC Championship Game between these two conference superpowers on Sunday.

A year after Joe Burrow and Joe Mixon had driven the Bengals into range for Evan McPherson to make the game-winning overtime kick at Arrowhead Stadium, Patrick Mahomes responded with the key play that set up Harrison Butker to boot the Chiefs into the Super Bowl.

Mahomes' surprising performance with a gimpy ankle proved to be the difference between the teams in a memorable chapter of what is now the NFL's most enthralling quarterback rivalry.

As of 12pm on Monday 30th, bet365 have gone live with their Non Runner No Bet market for every race of the 2023 Cheltenham Festival.

NRNB and Best odds Guaranteed has been available on the Champion Hurdle, the Queen Mother Champion Chase , the Ryanair Chase, the Stayers’ Hurdle and Cheltenham Gold Cup since January 3rd, with this offering now extended to all 28 races.

Customers now have the option of taking a slightly shorter price from the NRNB market with the security of knowing that if their horse wasn’t to race for any reason, their bet would be voided.

bet365’s Pat Cooney: Given that the Dublin Festival is this weekend at Leopardstown, with plenty of big names on show, it’s a suitable time for bet365 to now offer Non Runner No Bet on all 28 races at the Cheltenham Festival“ Of course, all 28 standard Ante Post books will remain open until the Festival many prefer the all in run or not angle of Ante Post betting, so we will also keep that option available too.

"Every time we've done this before, people are backing one particular stable of runners, such as a Willie Mullins or Gordon Elliott accumulator. Punters may think there's a Cheltenham winner waiting from them, but just don't know which race to back him in. It's very useful if they have multiple entries.

“Gaelic Warrior is perhaps the horse with most options, we’ve a NRNB price for him in six different races, and are currently laying him in all six!”

A reminder that as well as offering No Runner No Bet on every race, bet365 will be offering multiple boosts on selected horses in the build-up to every race.
