Futaa Best Bet

Chelsea's recent stranglehold over Manchester United in the FA Cup should give them cause for optimism, but United's brilliant form and 100% away record under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer poses a clear and present danger.

Scorer bets are usually tricky business but we can't see either side keeping a clean sheet, and that means scorer bets on both sides can win via betPawa! First here are the teams ...

Chelsea (4-3-3)

Kepa - Azpilicueta, Luiz, Rudiger, Alonso - Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic - Pedro, Higuain, Hazard

Manchester United (4-3-3)

Romero - Young, Lindelof, Smalling, Shaw - Herrera, Matic, Pogba - Mata, Lukaku, Rashford


In what is unquestionably the standout tie of this round, last year’s finalists clash over a place in the FA Cup quarter-finals, meeting in the FA Cup for the 16th time in 111 years. It's Chelsea who has the edge in recent encounters, but it's Man United with most of the current momentum. A 2-1 loss to PSG aside, United has been on a phenomenal run in the Premier League. Chelsea, in contrast, lost 6-0 at Man City in embarrassing fashion. In terms of the head to head record, Chelsea boasts a rich vein of form over United in this competition, having now won four times (including last year’s final) and drawn once against United since their last FA Cup defeat to the Red Devils, way back in March 1999. With Chelsea's last six matches across all competitions producing over 2.5 goals, we should definitely be in for the same here in a fiery contest.
