Chelsea FC, fresh off a 1-0 home win over Manchester United, will move on to the FA Cup semi-final, where they’ll face London rival Tottenham Hotspur. It’s an all big six club semifinal round, as Arsenal and Manchester City will meet in the other semifinal.
Both games are on April 22nd with kickoff times TBA.
The Blues, who have run away from the rest of the field, and have the Premier League title all but wrapped up, are the consensus favorites to reach Wembley Stadium for the finale, and emerge victorious. You have a couple months to click on TicketYoda.com and pick up some FA Cup Final Tickets 2017 as the event takes place on May 27th, with a start time still TBD. Here are the odds for each of the four finalists.
Chelsea are 21/10, Manchester City 9/4, Tottenham are 4/1 and Arsenal are 9/2, says Odds Checker’s website. With three of the four field hailing from London, you know that at least one, if not both, will have a large supporter base right there in town. Their London based fans won’t have to travel far.
Chelsea FC are definitely the team in form here. Spurs just lost Harry Kane for a very long time, if not the rest of the season. Arsenal are in disarray, due to the call to have their manager removed and Manchester City have never come close to playing at the level of their wage bill, all season long.
