CRAWLEY TOWN were celebrating a money-spinning FA Cup draw yesterday after being paired away to Manchester United.

But I wonder how their keeper is feeling about a trip to the Theatre of Dreams, especially after bookies flagged up odds of 13-8 for him to conceded six or more.

To be fair William Hill's price isn't demeaning, after all Blackburn recently conceded seven on their visit. Crawley are 10-3 with William Hill just to score and 16-1 to keep a clean sheet.

Firm's spokesman Graham Sharpe joked: “It will be fascinating to see what team Sir Alex puts out – the Under-10s, perhaps?”

Non-league Crawley, who I tipped to win at Torquay, deserve respect after earlier knocking out Swindon and Derby but it will be a matter of how many they concede.

Two or less is 4-1 with William Hill who go 4-1 exactly three, 4-1 exactly four and 7-2 exactly five.

Following the draw and Man City forcing a replay at Notts County, William Hill offer 10-1 on an all-Manchester final.

William Hill outrights: 5-2 Man Utd, 3-1 Arsenal, 4-1 Chelsea, 11-2 Man City, 20-1 Fulham, Stoke, 22-1 Birmingham, 25-1 Everton. Others on request.
