Manchester City are now odds-on favourites to win the FA Cup with Sky Bet after being paired with holders Wigan in the quarter-finals.

Manuel Pellegrini's had initially been cut to 6/4 in the outright market after beating Chelsea 2-0 on Saturday night but their chances of glory increased when being handed what would seem to be a favourable home tie with Sky Bet Championship opposition.

The Latics (66/1) of course shocked City, who are 10/11 with Sky Bet, 1-0 in last year's final thanks to a late header from Ben Watson in what proved Roberto Mancini's last match in charge of the Manchester club, but few will expect a repeat result this time.

Two of City's biggest remaining rivals in the draw - Arsenal and Everton - will meet in the quarter-finals at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners gained revenge over Liverpool for last weekend's 5-1 Premier League thrashing at Anfield with a 2-1 home victory on Sunday and they are second favourites at 11/4.

Everton are unsurprisingly next in the betting at 5/1 having seen off Swansea 3-1 at Goodison Park.

Sunderland, who will next meet Brighton (50/1) or Hull (18/1), are 16/1 while Sheffield United have been cut to 80/1 by Ladbrokes after beating Nottingham Forest to set up a quarter-final with either Sheffield Wednesday (125/1) or Charlton (150/1).

Draw:

Arsenal v Everton
Brighton/Hull v Sunderland
Sheffield United v Sheffield Wednesday/Charlton
Manchester City v Wigan

  • Matches to be played over the weekend of March 8-9.

    s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

    do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
