FA Cup Semi-finals: Man City To Continue Their Mission For Trophies

Manchester City v Brighton

City continue their attempt for a clean sweep of trophies this season and they are very strong favourites in their FA Cup Semi Final with lowly Brighton. Albion needed penalties in the last round to eliminate Championship outfit Millwall and were beaten 2-0 in Manchester earlier in the season. They have only tasted victory once in their last ten top flight matches and will need to produce a huge shock to qualify for the final.

City may not need to reach top form to progress but will surely have far too much weaponry. Once again they were on the bridle when defeating relegation threatened Cardiff 2-0 at home in midweek and you always feel the team can easily go through the gears if necessary.

Tip: Man City -2 goals at 21/20



Watford v Wolves


The second Semi-final looks far more intriguing and difficult to call. Both enjoyed tremendous midweek success and are in relatively decent form. Only one point separates the pair in the PL table so this is a contest which could go either way. With plenty of attacking options it’s hard not to envisage plenty of chances and this should be a great battle. Purely at the prices and with the tag of underdogs a little surprising, I think Watford will finally prevail and reach the final.


Tip: Watford to qualify at 11/10


Weekend Treble: Liverpool, Leicester and Chelsea all to win at 13/5
