The 2023/24 FA Cup is almost over, with one semi-final to go before the showpiece.

The competition started in August with the preliminary rounds, while League One and League Two sides enter around November. But for the biggest sides, the FA Cup really begins in the third round.

Of course, in the third round, the Championship and Premier League teams start their FA Cup campaigns, and over the first two rounds, saw a couple of top-flight sides fall. The biggest was Arsenal, which lost the Premier League head-to-head against Liverpool, beaten 2-0 at the Emirates.

Burnley, Brentford, West Ham, and Crystal Palace also dropped from the Premier League in the third round, the latter losing after a replay to Everton. There were five all-Premier League ties in the fourth round, meaning at least five would be knocked out. Those were Aston Villa, Tottenham, Everton, Fulham, and Sheffield United, with no upsets in the top flight. But there was a big upset at Championship high-flyers, with Maidstone winning 2-1 at Portman Road to continue their fairytale.

The fifth round was a little more routine, with the likes of Man City, Man Utd, Liverpool, and Chelsea all sealing progression. This set up some mouth-watering quarter-final ties, which saw both Manchester clubs, Chelsea and Coventry City survive.

In the first semi-final, holders Man City took on Chelsea and things were level until the 84th minute when Bernardo Silva scored the only goal of the game, booking a return trip.

Who are the favourites to win the FA Cup? 

Man City

As is the case every year for the FA Cup, Man City started as the favourites. They’re looking to be the first team to win the FA Cup back-to-back since Arsenal in 2015. And they’re now just one win away. It hasn’t been an easy run to the final for the holders, with Man City having to beat Premier League opposition in Tottenham, Luton, Newcastle and Chelsea along the way.

Man Utd

The second-most successful side in FA Cup history, Man Utd haven’t lifted the trophy since 2016 and were runners-up to Man City last season. But they’re fancied to at least make a repeat of the final this year. The Red Devils opened their FA Cup run with a win over Wigan, before knocking out Newport, Nottingham Forest and Liverpool to reach the semi-finals.


Surely the team that all the neutrals will now be backing, Coventry are seeking to become the first team from outside the top flight to win the FA Cup since 1980. When they won the trophy in 1986/87, they were a top-flight side, and that was also the last time they reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup. Oxford United, Sheffield Wednesday, Maidstone and Wolves have all fallen to Coventry so far.
