Chelsea are odds-on favourites to win the tie of the FA Cup fifth round, at best price 17/20 (Sky Bet), with City available at 15/4 and the draw at 29/10 (Bet365).

Both sides are still in the Champions League, but City have still to play their last 16 first leg match (on Wednesday in Ukraine), followed by the League Cup Final on Sunday and Manuel Pelligrini has threatened to rest some players for this fixture.

That will be music to Chelsea fans ears, especially as their side have won only two of their last eleven matches against City in all competitions (L6, D3).

The Blues have an excellent recent record in this competition, lifting the FA Cup in four of the last nine seasons – they are 11/2 with Sky Bet to make in five in ten, and Guus Hiddink has won all five of his FA Cup matches in charge of Chelsea.

If the likes of Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and David Silva are indeed rested, a bet on Chelsea to win ‘to nil’ at best odds of 21/10 with William Hill looks worthwhile (City have failed to score in 4 of their last 8 away league games).

Finally, Diego Costa has scored seven goals in his last nine league appearances and can be backed at a standout 9/2 with Betfair to score first in this game.
