Jermaine Jenas rules out 'inconsistent' Man Utd winning FA Cup but tips in-form Chelsea to go all the way

FORMER Tottenham and England star Jermaine Jenas has tipped Chelsea to go all the way in the FA Cup on the eve of quarter-final weekend.

Eight teams will battle it out over the coming days to secure a day out at Wembley in the semis and edge a step closer to glory.

Manchester City, who travel to Everton, are the big favourites to lift the cup in May.

Championship side Bournemouth host out-of-form Southampton while Leicester host Manchester United, with Jenas feeling the Red Devils are ‘too inconsistent’ to go all the way.

And he fancies Thomas Tuchel’s Blues to be one the ones to stop City.

Jenas, who is working with sponsor of BT Sport’s coverage of the Emirates FA Cup heycar, said: “Leicester struggled towards the end of last season and I see that happening a bit again this season.

“Whereas Manchester United are just too inconsistent, week to week.”

Moving on to assess Chelsea, he admitted he has a feeling the West London club could be the ones set to end the season with Wembley joy.

They face the Premier League’s bottom club Sheffield United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

And with Tuchel still unbeaten since taking charge, Jenas has a feeling it may be their name on the cup.

The 38-year-old said: “Chelsea might win it.

“They have found some form under Thomas Tuchel and I like what is going down there.

“With the form they’re in, they could be a side bet to Manchester City as winners this season.”
