Blues to make it six of the best against Sky Blues

Chelsea go into this game on the back of five successive victories as 'new manager syndrome' has well and truly taken effect.

Guus Hiddink's side are sitting second in the table, have one foot in the next round of the Champions League and are well fancied to make it the semi's of the FA Cup.

Chris Coleman's Coventry City side aren't doing too badly themselves though, defeat at home to Sheffield United during the week was only their first defeat in seven matches and the home side have surely now put to bed any lingering fears of relegation and might even fancy a late, but probably fruitless, push at the play-offs.

If it wasn't for an un-defeated February the home side might've been a much bigger price but as it is you can still back them at an attractive looking 6/1. I'm sure Coventry Chairman Ray Ranson would love to take it back to Stamford Bridge with a money spinning replay, and if you think Cookie's team can give him this wish and force a draw then that's available at 11/4. Chelsea are unsurprisingly the favourites for this match though at odds of 8/15.

With the away side quite a short price why not have a look elsewhere to get a bit more value, our handicap betting sees the visitors with a minus goal against them at a much more tempting 13/8.

The 1987 Cup winners have struggled to hit the back of the net this season, with top scorer Clinton Morrison only having 10 goals to his name. The former Republic of Ireland forward is 9/1 to get the Ricoh Arena crowd rocking with the first of the game and is 10/3 to pounce at anytime of the match. Aron Einar Gunnarsson hit an absolute beauty at Ewood Park in the fifth round, the Icelandic midfield man is 25/1 get a headline grabbing goal in this tie with the first of the match and 8/1 to strike at any point of the game.

Chelsea have an abundance of talent all hoping to get on the score sheet, sulky striker Nicolas Anelka is one of the most likely candidates having got a hat-trick in the previous round victory at Watford and is 4/1 to claim the first of this game and evens to notch one at any stage of the match. German international Michael Ballack has got three goals so far this FA Cup campaign and is a cracking price at 8/1 to start the scoring this weekend.
