Take Toffees at 11/4 to send Blues packing

Manchester United and Arsenal both look to have found themselves straightforward enough passages to progress to the next round of the FA Cup and you can expect both teams to be changed as the cup competition returns in the middle of a fascinating title tussle.

Chelsea will not have ruled themselves out of the title race just yet and they face arguably the toughest test this weekend with an away tie at Everton.

Boylesports make Chelsea 1/1 to win but the Betting Book are going to go with a home win at 11/4.

There is no doubt that there has been a Chelsea resurgence but there is also no doubt that they will have one eye on the title and that may lead to Everton causing a bit of an upset.

Another team to get their act together are Aston Villa and they are 10/11 to beat Blackburn in another all Premier League tie.

Fulham play host to Tottenham in what will be a cagey contest. Despite a disappointing result last weekend Spurs should come out on top and at 13/10 it looks a good price.

Torquay are not a team that get too many mentions in the Betting Book, indeed this could be their debut, but they look a decent price at 11/10 to beat Crawley Town.

Reading go to Stevenage, who dumped Newcastle out last time, and maybe their cup dream can continue with a draw at 12/5, while Wolves get a tentative vote over Stoke at 11/8.

Manchester City should oblige at short odds at 2/5, while pressure is on Avram Grant (pictured) as West Ham go into their tie with Nottingham Forest at 21/20 favourites.
