All the best odds from Paddy Power ahead of City's FA Cup clash with Jose Mourinho's men...
City to win 15/2
Manchester City beat Chelsea 2-1 in the semi-final of the FA Cup last season and are 15/2 to repeat this scoreline at the Etihad on Saturday (5.15pm).
City to lead
Two first-half goals from Samir Nasri and Sergio Aguero sent the Citizens into a 2-0 lead at Wembley and Paddy Power make City 17/10 to be leading after 45 minutes or 10/1 to be winning 2-0 at the break.
With Aguero and Fernandinho still recovering from injury, City will look to Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko to provide the fire-power up .
Negredo has scored three goals in the two FA Cup games he’s played this season, both again Blackburn, while Dzeko hit the net twice in the 5-0 replay win against the Championship side last month.
The former Sevilla hitman has hit the first goal in his last two FA Cup starts and is 5/1 to get the first goal of the game or 7/5 to hit the net at anytime over the 90 minutes against Jose Mourinho’s side who beat Derby and Stoke in the first two rounds of England’s oldest club competition.
And if Alvaro Negredo scores first, Paddy Power will refund all losing first, last Goalscorer, correct Score and Scorecast singles on the match.
City to score the first goal at 4/5
City have opened the scoring in almost three quarters of their games this term and have led at half time in four of their last five games at the Etihad. Paddy Power make them 4/5 to get the first goal of the game on Saturday.
