Blues ready for Easter Cup Cracker on Monday: The Odds

Chelsea are a top priced 2.5 with bet365 to beat Manchester United in their FA Cup quarter-final replay at Stamford Bridge in what promises to be an Easter Monday cracker.
It will be the 11th FA Cup tie between the pair, and The Red Devils lead the head-to-head record by eight wins to two.
Sir Alex’s men have also won their last two games in the competition  at the Bridge with their last FA Cup defeat at the ground coming way back in March 1950.
However the Blues have not lost an FA Cup game at Stamford Bridge since March 2003 (W20 D4) and have scored in each of their last 33.
Indeed, Rafa Benitez’s side are now unbeaten in 28 FA Cup games (excluding penalty shootouts), the longest ever run without defeat by a single side.
That suggests they are more than capable of winning this if brining their “A” game to the table.
One bet that does stand out in the game is goals.
The last seven meetings between these sides in all competitions have seen 34 goals scored, with 18 netted in just two meetings so far this term.
That makes over 2.5 look a solid odds-on shot at 1.62 with bet365.
Juan Mata has scored five goals and assisted eight in just 11 appearances in the FA Cup, and that makes him of obvious interest in the goalscorer markets.
The Spaniard is an 8 shot with Boylesports to net the opener and a best of 3.25 with Paddy Power to score anytime.
In the correct score market I am going to take Chelsea to prevail 3-2 at 23 with Boylesports in a game which has goals written all over it.
