Chelsea & Tottenham: FA Cup favourites
This weekend stages the semifinals of the 2017-18 FA Cup.
On Saturday at Wembley Stadium, Man United will take on Tottenham.
On Sunday, against at Wembley, Chelsea face off against Southampton.
The bookies believe that Chelsea and Tottenham are the joint-favourites to win the FA Cup.
Chelsea have been priced at 7/4 to win the trophy.
Last season, many believed that Chelsea would also win the FA Cup to complete a double in Antonio Conte’s first season at the Blues. Yet, Chelsea were beaten in the final by Arsenal.
Could they suffer a shock defeat against Southampton?
On Tuesday the Blues have been hit with the news Marcos Alonso has been charged by the FA for violent conduct.
The charge comes from last weekend’s Premier League match against Southampton at St Mary’s. Alonso dragged his studs into the back of Shane Long’s leg.
Alonso could received a three match ban as a result.
Were that to happen, the 27-year-old Spanish wing-back would miss this weekend’s FA Cup semifinal, plus upcoming Premier League matches against Burnley and Swansea City.
