United to face Wolves in last eight

Manchester United are 7-2 with Betfred to win the FA Cup after being drawn away to Wolves in the quarter-finals.

United, who reached the last eight by beating holders Chelsea 2-0, face another difficult away game in their quest to lift the trophy under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

However, having seen off Arsenal and Chelsea in previous rounds, United are clearly in good form and the damage at Stamford Bridge was done in the first half, thanks largely to the excellence of man-of-the-match Paul Pogba.

The Frenchman's expert cross was headed home by Ander Herrera before Pogba doubled United's advantage, getting his head on a Marcus Rashford centre.

Chelsea keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga should have done better with Pogba's effort and the defeat increased the pressure on under-fire Blues boss Maurizio Sarri.

The Italian is the odds-on favourite at 4-9 from 4-5 with Betway to be the next Premier League manager to leave his current position. Zinedine Zidane is Betway's 6-4 market leader to replace Sarri, who is yet to win a major trophy in his career.

Pep Guardiola has tasted success in most competitions, although he is still waiting for a first FA Cup and the draw, which sees Manchester City head to Sky Bet Championship outfit Swansea, has been kind to the favourites.

City, who remain on course for a quadruple, are 5-6 to win the FA Cup. Watford host Crystal Palace and Brighton head to Millwall.

FA Cup quarter-final draw: Swansea v Man City, Watford v Crystal Palace, Wolves v Man Utd, Millwall v Brighton. Ties to be played on the weekend starting March 15.

Key stats
  • Lazio have won four of their last five matches in all competitions
Expert verdict
Lazio won the Coppa Italia last Wednesday after two late goals helped them see off Atalanta in the final and they can win their final league match at home comfortably. Bologna have virtually pulled clear of danger with three wins in their previous four games but they all came at home and their record on the road leaves a lot to be desired. They have won only two of their 18 away league fixtures and lost the reverse 2-1 in October.
