Already well on course for Premier League glory, Manchester City will see no reason to limit their ambitions for the rest of the season – with the prospect of a double or treble a distinct possibility.
Drawn at home to Burnley in the Third Round, Pep Guardiola’s men are 7/2 (4.50) favourites with dabblebet to add to their trophy haul by winning the FA Cup for the first time since 2011.
However, local rivals Manchester United will be extra keen to stand between their neighbours and cup glory, and are on offer at 6/1 (7.00) to take home the trophy themselves after being paired at home to Derby County.
That same 6/1 (7.00) price is also available on Chelsea bouncing back from last season’s final defeat to go all the way this time out, with Championship opposition also awaiting them first in the form of Norwich City.
The Blues were beaten by an Arsenal team that lifted the trophy for the third time in four seasons, and who can be backed at 10/1 (11.00) to do so once again this time out.
Despite their strong recent record, Arsene Wenger’s men are actually behind their local rivals in the betting, with Tottenham Hotspur priced at 8/1 (9.00) to pick up the first silverware of the Mauricio Pochettino era in this competition.
Similarly, Jurgen Klopp is on offer at 9/1 (10.00) to lift his first trophy in English football with an FA Cup triumph, although a difficult third round tie against Merseyside rivals Everton provides a tricky first obstacle.
Indeed, the Toffees are the most fancied side outside the ‘Big Six’ to go all the way in the competition, available at 22/1 (23.00) to end their 23-year wait for a major cup this campaign.
Having upset the odds in historic fashion by winning the Premier League title two years ago, Leicester City can be backed at 28/1 (29.00) to do so once again in the cup.
