Arsenal v Leeds FA Cup - Freebets

Back any Premier League team to the FA Cup and Coral will give you a free bet on a non-Premier League team of your choice to win the FA Cup. Online bookmakers give new customers free bets which can be placed on the FA Cup.


The romance of the FA Cup is all about the David v Goliath clashes and the dream that a lower division club can overcome the Premier League giants and claim glory at Wembley in May.

Millwall in 2004 and Cardiff City in 2008 are the two most recent non-Premier League teams to reach the FA Cup final and we have to go back to West Ham in the 1979-80 season for the last team from outside the top flight to lift the FA Cup. The seventies were a golden period for giant-killing, Sunderland and Southampton won the FA Cup when in the second division in 1973 and 1976 respectively and there were a few famous victories by non-league sides like Yeovil and Hereford.

Newcastle United know what its like to be on the wrong end of an FA Cup giant-killing act, Ronnie Radford’s 30-yard winner for the Southern League outfit still receives airtime today and continues to rub the Tynesiders nose in it 40 years later.

The FA Cup third round draw has thrown up a few potential giant-killing ties. Arsenal v Leeds stands out with memories of the 1972 FA Cup final but more recently when the sides met in the third round of last season’s FA Cup. Leeds held on for a draw at the Emirates but were unable to beat Arsenal at Elland Road where they lost 3-1. Arsenal are understandable favourites, 3/10 with William Hill while Victor Chandler bets 11/1 for Leeds to pull off a shock win and 5/1 to repeat last season’s achievement of a draw.

Liverpool face Oldham for the first time since Athletic were relegated from the Premier League in 1994. Liverpool won home and away that season, but the last time Oldham went to Merseyside in the FA Cup they pulled off a shock 1-0 win at Everton, in the third round four years ago. As unlikely as it seems, who could rule out another shock on Friday night, especially given some of the results over the Christmas period? Victor Chandler is offering odds of 25/1 for Oldham to win and 9/1 to take Liverpool back to Boundary Park for a replay.
