The 2016-17 FA Cup stands a 75% chance of having an all-London club final as far as basic chance goes, with Manchester City the only outfit from outside the capital present in this season’s semi-finals.
The Citizens appear to have chance running their favour, however, and Pep Guardiola’s side have been given the favourite status for their clash against Arsenal on Sunday, April 23, listed at 4/7 (1.57) to make it into the final ahead of the Gunners, who are 5/4 (2.25) to pull off the same feat.
In the other semi-final encounter, Premier League leaders Chelsea will take on second-placed Tottenham Hotspur in a duel between west and north, and the Blues have the bookmakers backing their corner.
Antonio Conte’s men are currently 4/7 (1.57) to beat Spurs and advance to the Wembley final, while Mauricio Pochettino’s upstarts find themselves embracing an underdog tag at 5/4 (2.25).
