Marine vs Spurs: Grealish SPOTY win more likely than minnows victory

Jose Mourinho
Will Jose suffer an FA Cup upset?

Will we witness one of, if not, the biggest FA Cup upsets of all time at Rossett Park on Sunday? It's unlikely, to say the least.

"Our number crunchers believe there are a host of crazy possibilities all more likely to happen this year than the part-timers toppling Mourinho, including Jurgen Klopp or Michael Owen becoming the next England boss"

Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom

Marine are priced at 80/1 with Betfair to beat Spurs this weekend on home soil and should they prevail, it will be one of the biggest FA Cup upset of all time.

Marine enter the third round of the famous competition as the lowest placed side and as rank 3000/1 outsiders to win the competition. Spurs are 7/1 third favourites.

In the world of football, Man City boss Pep Guardiola is 33/1 to manage Manchester United as his next club, Jack Grealish is 50/1 to be SPOTY this year and Manchester United are 60/1 to finish in the bottom half this season - all more likely to happen than a Marine win.

Away from football, Jeremy Corbyn is 33/1 to appear on I'm A Celebrity this year and Meghan and Harry's son Archie is 50/1 to be a train driver as his first profession. Both are more likely than the Northern Premier League side are to topple Mourinho's men.

Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom said: "The FA Cup third round weekend is almost upon us, a traditional fixture on the footballing calendar that fans of clubs up and down the country look forward to, especially when the big teams face a potential upset.

"One of the ties of the round is Marine against Spurs, and an 80/1 shock on Merseyside would certainly be one for the history books, a Marine win would no doubt be one of the biggest FA Cup upsets of all time.

"Our number crunchers believe there are a host of crazy possibilities all more likely to happen this year than the part-timers toppling Mourinho, including Jurgen Klopp or Michael Owen becoming the next England boss, Nigel Farage to be the next Prime Minister or Archie Mountbatten-Windsor becoming a train driver. "The list of events we think have a better chance of taking place this year across the world of news and sport tell the full story and should Marine upset the odds on Sunday, it'll go down as another storyline no-one saw coming in these unprecedented times."
