Check out the latest offers ahead of Sunday's FA Cup semi-final...
City go into Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea (4pm) in the best possible heart and secure in the knowledge they have yet to concede a goal in this season’s competition.
Full of confidence after the 2-1 derby win over United last Monday, the Manchester Blues are priced at 16/5 with online partner Paddy Power to win to nil against Chelsea or 21/10 to keep a clean sheet
Roberto Mancini’s men are 11/8 favourites with Paddy Power to beat Rafa Benitez’s side in a tournament they last won just two years ago.
The champions are 4/6 to qualify for the final and are 5/4 favourites with Paddy Power to win the FA Cup outright.
The teams have met three times before in England’s premier cup competition and City have won twice and lost once against the FA Cup specialists who are looking to win the competition for the fifth time in seven seasons.
More recently, James Milner and Sergio Aguero did the damage against United with the Argentinean international’s wonderfully taken individual goal sealing the derby win.
The pair are familiar foes having met at Villa Park in the Community Shield last August where City came from a goal down to win 3-2. They are 10/1 to come from behind and win on Sunday. A repeat of the 3-2 scoreline is 25/1 with Paddy Power.
