Norwich City vs Manchester United Betting Tips

Anthony Martial showed just how lethal he can be in front of goal this week with a terrific performance in Manchester United’s 3-0 Premier League victory over Sheffield United. The Frenchman scored all three of the Red Devils’ goals in that match, taking his seasonal tally to 19 in all competitions and thus making this the most prolific season of his career to date.

That hat-trick against the Blades was the first of Martial’s career and will have sent his confidence sky-rocketing ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup Quarter-Final against Norwich City. The Canaries have the second-worst defensive record in the Premier League this season and they’re yet to keep a clean sheet in the FA Cup either this season, despite progressing past Preston North End, Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur to reach the final eight stage.

Having scored four goals in his last six matches before the season was suspended, Martial has now found the net seven times in his last eight games so we can’t resist odds of 23/20 on him scoring again here.

Sheffield United vs Arsenal Betting Tips

Sheffield United have enjoyed a terrific campaign, but many pundits suggested that they may be one of the teams to suffer from the lack of intensity that occurs in these behind closed doors games at times and that appears to have been the case so far. A 0-0 draw at Aston Villa has been followed up by back-to-back 3-0 away defeats at Newcastle United and Manchester United since the Premier League returned.

Arsenal weren’t enjoying the best of returns themselves at first, going down 3-0 at Manchester City in their first match back before a last gasp defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend. On Thursday night however, the Gunners put in a much improved display at St Mary’s Stadium, easing to a 0-2 victory over Southampton without facing too many defensive issues despite an injury to first-choice goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

Despite their lofty position in the Premier League, Sheffield United have actually struggled for goals all season. Their return of just 30 goals is the sixth-worst in the whole division and after a trio of goalless games prior to this match against an Arsenal side looking to build on their win at St Mary’s Stadium.

Leicester City vs Chelsea Betting Tips

James Justin has impressed since coming into the Leicester side for the injured Ricardo Pereira. The Portuguese defender suffered ligament damage in the Foxes’ final game before the enforced break and is likely to miss not only the rest of this campaign – but the start of the next one too.

22-year-old Justin has filled in admirably in the Premier League fixtures against Watford and Brighton & Hove Albion though, particularly in the 1-1 draw with the Hornets in which he won no fewer than seven tackles, taking him up to third in Leicester’s squad for ‘tackles per 90 minutes’ this season.

Be it Pedro, Willian, Christian Pulisic or – as was the case in the win at Aston Villa last weekend – Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Justin will come up against a player who likes to dribble from the left-hand side of the Chelsea attack on Sunday. He’ll be forced to stay tight and make as many quick tackles as possible to help his side in this fixture.

Get 5/4 on James Justin to make 4+ tackles in Leicester City vs Chelsea with Sky Bet here.

Newcastle United vs Manchester City Betting Tips

Kevin de Bruyne may have caught the eye in Manchester City’s Premier League trip to St James’ Park earlier in the season with a stunning strike from outside the box, but Bernardo Silva is the Citizens midfielder we have our eye on ahead of the FA Cup tie between the two sides on Sunday afternoon.

The Portuguese midfielder appears to be going from strength to strength under Pep Guardiola and after the two assists he picked up in the 5-0 win over Burnley earlier in the week, is in line to be called upon for the trip to Tyneside over the weekend.

As such, the creative burden could again fall to the 25-year-old as the visitors attempt to break down what is expected to be a stoic Steve Bruce side. Not that he will mind – his seven Premier League assists rank him seventh in the whole league and he also ranks seventh in the league for final third passes completed.

Get 6/5 on Bernardo Silva to get an assist in Newcastle United vs Manchester City with Sky Bet here.

What’s the history of the FA Cup?

First bought into inception during the 1871-72 season, the FA Cup – known officially as the Football Association Challenge Cup – has been a hallmark of the annual football season long before the introduction of domestic leagues.

As such, it’s growing popularity with clubs outside the highest division of football, from League One to the Championship, is not surprising at all.

The club that holds the most FA Cup winners medals is Arsenal (13), with Premier League rivals Manchester United not far behind (12). In their wake, Chelsea and Tottenham both have 8 medals, while Liverpool, Aston Villa, Newcastle United and Manchester City trail behind. 

The ‘magic of the cup’ is a phrase often passed around, and rightly so given that the tournament has been won 10 times by teams outside the top division; the most recent being in 1980 when West Ham United toppled Arsenal.

The FA Cup is the world’s oldest competition, with the first game being played in the winter – November, to be exact – of 1871.

Over the years, 43 teams have claimed FA Cup glory. None more so, however, than Arsenal, who have won the tournament a record 13 times.

Kevin Moran holds the unfortunate record of being the first man to have been sent off in an FA Cup final, who saw red in 1985 playing for Manchester United.

It wouldn’t be an FA Cup final fact-check without Didier Drogba. Indeed, the Chelsea forward holds the accolade of having scored in four different finals.

Sticking with the blues, Chelsea were the last team to win the Cup at the old Wembley, and the first team to win at the new Wembley.

Operating as the unluckiest club in the history of the FA Cup, Leicester City have made it all the way to four finals only to fall flat at the final hurdle each time.
