Arsenal won the competition last season after beating Chelsea 2-1 at Wembley but who will lift the trophy this time around?

The 2020-21 FA Cup is into the business end of the tournament with eight teams all trying to dethrone Arsenal after they won last season's competition at Wembley by beating Chelsea 2-1.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s double marked their fourth FA Cup in the last seven years and Goal looks at the favourites to lift the trophy in 2021.

Who are the favourites to win the 2020-21 FA Cup?

Manchester City are 11/8 (2.38) favourites to win the FA Cup with bet365 and continue to assert their recent dominance of English silverware.

Pep Guardiola’s side won the tournament in 2018 as part of a domestic treble, and have also won the Carabao Cup four times in the last five seasons alongside three Premier League crowns in six years.

Chelsea are 7/2 (4.50) to go one step further than last year and win the FA Cup for the ninth time in their history.

The Blues have been in three of the last four finals but have only been victorious in one of those, and a piece of silverware inside his first six months would certainly go a long way to proving Thomas Tuchel was the correct choice to replace Frank Lampard.

Manchester United can be backed at 9/2 (5.50) to lift the FA Cup and give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the first trophy of his tenure at the club.

Although the Red Devils are the second most successful side in the history of the competition with 12 titles, only two of those have come since their famous treble in 1999.

Who are the underdogs to win the 2020-21 FA Cup?

Leicester are 10/1 (11.0) to win the FA Cup for the first time in their long history, having previously lost in the final on four occasions.

The Foxes have reached the quarter-finals in two of the last three seasons, being beaten by Chelsea both times, but are the underdogs to book a trip to Wembley after being drawn against Man Utd in the quarter-finals.

Southampton are available at 12/1 (13.0) to lift the FA Cup for the second time, with major strides having been taken under Ralph Hasenhuttl as the club look to end what will be a 45-year wait for a major trophy.

Everton are enjoying a strong Premier League season and are 16/1 (17.0) to lift the FA Cup at Wembley.

The Toffees have won it five times in their history but their reward for having edged Tottenham 5-4 in the fifth round is being drawn against favourites Man City in the quarters.

Who are the outsiders to win the 2020-21 FA Cup?

Sheffield United are rock-bottom of the Premier League and look set to drop back down to the Championship, but are going well in the FA Cup and are available at 33/1 (34.0) to lift the trophy at Wembley.

The Blades will face Chelsea in the last eight of the competition, which will mark their first top-flight opponents of the tournament after previously beating Bristol Rovers, Plymouth Argyle and Bristol City.

Bournemouth are the only Championship side left in the FA Cup and are 50/1 (51.0) to lift the trophy for the first time in their history.

They have already matched their best ever run in this competition, last reaching the quarter-finals back in 1957, and victory over south-coast rivals Southampton would see them book a place in the semi-finals for the first time.
