Chelsea head the betting with Manchester United after a straightforward win at Coventry.

Chelsea booked their places in the last four of the FA Cup without breaking sweat and were only ever matched at [1.66] on Betfair as they beat Coventry 2-0. Didier Drogba, back to the form he displayed in the Mourinho days, opened the scoring after being matched at a high of [6.0].

A good result for those who showed faith in him and a good result for those who backed Chelsea to be leading at half-time at [2.32]. The 2-0 correct score was matched at [8.2].

The win makes Chelsea joint-favourites for the FA Cup at [3.1] alongside Manchester United who have a tricky task on their hands when they visit Fulham later today. The Cottagers are a huge [25.0] for Wembley glory and [3.9] to knock out Sir Alex Ferguson's men.
