Latest FA Cup Odds : Liverpool, Manchester and Chelsea look to avoid major upsets in Third Round

chelseaFA Cup is back Sunday as William Hill release latest free bets on Liverpool Oldham, Man Utd Swansea & Derby Chelsea, as the firm reports this morning that today they have seen a flurry of money for another cup upset.

Chelsea are seen as 4/9 favourites to beat high flying Championship side Derby County on Sunday afternoon whilst Liverpool will be keen to avoid a home defeat to League One side Oldham Athletic.

Chelsea and Liverpool currently find themselves right in the mix for the Premier League title but both sides will have to put their league ambitions aside if they are to avoid a shock loss to lower league opponents on Sunday afternoon.

Third placed Chelsea will need to be careful as they have a potentially tough trip to the Midlands to face a Derby side who are battling for promotion to the Premier League.

The Blues enjoyed a good run in the competition last year having made it all the way to the semi-finals before losing to Manchester City 2-1 at Wembley.

For this year’s campaign, Mourinho will be forced to pick a side without regular first picks Branislav Ivanovic and Frank Lampard who are both out injured until the end of the month.

With Ivanovic out, Brazilian defender David Luiz is set to return having served a domestic suspension during the midweek league against Southampton.

Derby are in good form at the moment and the Championship side are currently fourth in the standings just 2 points off the automatic promotion spots.

The Championship side will only be without Johnny Russell for the game with the striker still out with a broken cheekbone.

The Rams have been scoring for fun for much of the season and former Norwich striker Chris Martin will look to penetrate the makeshift Chelsea defence having already scored 15 times this season.

In the other major clash, Liverpool will be out to make sure they get the job done against League One side Oldham Athletic at Anfield and avoid a repeat of last year’s shock defeat.

Both sides met last season in the Fourth Round of the cup where the Lancashire side beat The Reds for the first time in a 3-2 victory.

Despite their injury problems, Brendan Rogers could give many of his top stars a rest giving the likes of Iago Aspas and Raheem Sterling to showcase what they can do giving the likes of Luis Suarez the chance to rest and be saved for their league title push.

Oldham are winless in 6 games in League One and this poor form will no doubt mean that fans of The Latics will hope that now will be the time their team comes good and return to winning ways.

The FA Cup is always full of shocks and both Chelsea and Liverpool will need to make sure they get the job done if they are to avoid finding themselves on the wrong end of the headlines on Monday morning.
