City advanced thanks to Sergio Aguero

City advanced thanks to Sergio Aguero

Sunderland, Liverpool, Everton and Southampton all eased to victory in the FA Cup but the layers almost got a surprise favour from Manchester City, who were 2-0 down at half-time in their clash with Watford.

However, a second-half hat-trick from Sergio Aguero helped Manuel Pellegrini's side advance, and they're now Sky Bet's 3/1 favourites to lift the trophy.

"So far 2014 has been a great year for our customers and the FA Cup is the latest reason for them to cheer with all the popular selections winning," said Sky Bet's Marcus Berry.

"We are all hoping that the results improve for the rest of the year - starting tomorrow when Chelsea play Stoke - as we are taking a battering!"

Favourite backers will be supporting Chelsea on Sunday as they go into the clash with Stoke as 9/2 chances in the outright betting, just behind Arsenal at 4/1 following their 4-0 victory over Coventry on Friday.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
