This entry was posted on Friday, March 16th, 2012
David Moyes clocked up 10 years in charge of Everton this week, and a celebratory trip to Wembley awaits if they can get the better of Martin O’Neill’s Sunderland tomorrow. Everton‘s recent home form has been nothing short of spectacular, with victories over Manchester City, Chelsea and Spurs part of five consecutive home wins and four consecutive home clean sheets. Back the Toffees to win 1-0 at 6/1 with Ladbrokes.
After three consecutive league defeats, Spurs will be looking to bounce back against Owen Coyle’s relegation battlers. Bolton haven’t scored in four of their last five away league game, whilst Spurs may be tense given recent form, ERGO the Spurs 1-0 victory looks a fair price at 8/1 at Bet365. Overall, we quite like the under 2.5 goals at a healthy 6/4 with Blue Square.
Chelsea have flourished under Roberto Di Matteo’s leadership and their game with Leicester City on Sunday presents a terrific opportunity to make a semi-final. Many Leicester fans see this game as a chance to get revenge for a famous FA Cup tie back in the 90s, when a questionable last minute penalty at the Bridge, sent the Blues through. We don’t fancy it however. Back Chelsea -1 on the Handicap betting at 4/5 with Blue Square.
Having tasted both sides of the FA Cup Wembley experience last year, Stoke will be looking to have another bite of the cherry. They head to Anfield, where the famous old sign is now as intimidating as a welcome doormat, with Dalglish’s men having won just five of 14 home league games this season. 7/2 with Bet365 is available on the draw, which would be a repeat of the recent league match between the two. The 1-1 correct score also appeals at 8/1 with Blue Square.
