FA Cup: Play it Again, Cam
Cambridge United are 33/1 outsiders with William Hill to win against Manchester United when they play at Old Trafford on Tuesday in their FA Cup replay. Cambridge forced an unlikely goalless draw to earn the replay and will now take to the ‘Theatre Of Dreams’ hoping for an even better result.
“It would be one of the biggest upsets of all time if Cambridge could carve a victory at Old Trafford, but very few gave them a hope in the first leg and there have already been some huge surprises in this year’s FA Cup,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
William Hill make Manchester United the overwhelming favourites at odds of just 1/12, but Cambridge fans will hope former Manchester United player Luke Chadwick returns to haunt his old club – he’s 11/2 to score at any time.
Elsewhere, Sheffield United are 7/5 favourites to knock Preston out of the Cup, while Sunderland are marginal favourites when they travel to Craven Cottage to play Fulham. On Wednesday, Liverpool drive the short distance to Bolton as odds-on favourites to progress in the final replay of the round.
