FA Cup: Hazard to star for Blues

There are two more FA Cup ties scheduled today, with the opening tie being held in west London as Chelsea entertain Newcastle.

The Blues are missing a few players, including main striker Alvaro Morata and midfielder Willian. This means the home team are going to rely heavily on the talent of Belgian star Eden Hazard for goals.

We at Lap of the Odds think Chelsea will be too strong for Newcastle, after all they have beaten the Magpies in five out of the last six FA Cup tied and the visitors are likely to rest players.

We’ll take Hazard to cause many problems for the visitors, and take the 100/30 that he is named man of the match.

The second game sees Cardiff host league leader Manchester City.

Everyone knows how well Manchester City are playing, but the home team are also flying high in the Championship. They are a typical Neil Warnock side, strong and powerful with emphasis on set pieces.

Manchester City will know they have been in a game at the final whistle, and it could take some time for their silky football to gain control. We’ll take Manchester City to win at full time after a draw at half time.
