FA Cup quarter final betting tips for the weekend

With the Premier League and Carabao Cup already claimed by Liverpool and Manchester City respectively this season, the FA Cup is the last piece of major domestic silverware on offer in what has been a captivating 2019/20 campaign.

To that end, eight clubs will go head-to-head for the competition’s four semi-final spots in a mouth-watering set of quarter final tussles featuring some of the country’s biggest and best teams this weekend.

On Saturday, relegation favourites Norwich City kick things off against Manchester United at Carrow Road hoping to cause a major “cupset” against Ole Gunner Solskjaer’s in-form outfit, before supporters are treated to a quarter final triple header 24 hours later.

Sheffield United and Arsenal open the knockout football extravaganza in Sunday’s first cup offering, before games between Leicester and Chelsea, and Newcastle vs Man City follow.
