English FA Cup 6th Round
Who: Chelsea v Manchester United
When: Monday 13th March, 19.45 UK time
Live on: BBC One

Premier League leaders Chelsea have lost just once at Stamford Bridge this season and host an FA Cup quarter-final tie against a Manchester United team still hoping to win three trophies this season.

Chelsea beat Manchester United 4-0 in a Premier League match earlier this term at the Bridge, and they also won 1-0 on home turf when last meeting United in a FA Cup action, which was a sixth-round replay back in April 2013. Odds of 5.50 are available for the Blues to win this tie by another 1-0 scoreline and having won every home game this term apart from a 2-1 defeat by Liverpool during mid-September, Chelsea are being offered at 1.75 for just claiming victory.

The Blues have also won their previous three competitive games with Diego Costa netting in all three matches, and he is offered at 2.62 to find the net in a home win besides odds of 4.50 being quoted on him becoming Last Goalscorer for the third time in four matches.

Odds of 10.00 are also available for Pedro to be First Goalscorer for the third time since mid-February with the Spaniard opening the scoring during that earlier 4-0 victory against United, and having netted in the three preceding rounds of the cup, he can be backed at 4.00 to score a quarter-final goal. Meanwhile Willian is available at 3.75 for netting his third FA Cup goal this season.

Manchester United last won at Stamford Bridge when claiming a 3-2 Premier League victory back in October 2012, and they will enter this game unbeaten in ten competitive matches. After sealing the EFL Cup last month and securing a 1-1 draw at Rostov in a midweek Europa League first leg tie, United will hope to progress further in this tournament, and can be backed at 5.00 to win this game. With their hosts scoring in every home match this term, Manchester Utd are also available at 12.00 to claim victory with both teams scoring.

In the absence of the suspended Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Manchester United could struggle in attack after the Swede netted seven competitive goals last month, but Henrikh Mkhitaryan has opened the scoring for the team on three occasions since the beginning of February including in Rostov on Thursday evening. The Armenian forward is priced at 10.00 to be First Goalscorer on Monday evening and 9.00 to net in an away victory.

Juan Mata is priced at 4.50 to score against his former club and claim his fifth competitive goal during 2017.

As Manchester United have scored once in three of their four latest games, they are quoted at 2.50 to net exactly 1 goal in this contest plus 7.50 for winning via one clear goal. Chelsea have netted at least twice in each of their home games this year and are available at 4.80 for scoring 2 or more goals while they can also be backed at 7.50 and 21.00 for one and two goal winning margins respectively.

Other Available Bets:

A draw is 3.50.
A 0-0 draw is 7.50.
Diego Costa netting first in 2-0 and 3-1 victories for Chelsea is 20.00 and 51.00 respectively.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan scoring first in 1-0 and 2-1 wins for Manchester United is 71.00 and 111.00 respectively.
