thumbnail Hello,

Jose Mourinho takes his side to face the Rams this Sunday in the FA Cup, with our tipster backing goals from both sides with the visitors progressing in the competition

Chelsea travel to Derby County in the FA Cup on Sunday in one of the stand-out ties of the round. The Championship outfit have been in sensational form of late since appointing former England manager Steve McLaren to the helm at Pride Park, and will provide a real test for the Premier League giants.

Chelsea come into this match after a fantastic win at Southampton on New Year's Day. Jose Mourinho's men battled to a 3-0 win, with three second-half goals proving the difference.

This was the Blues' third win in a row, after beating Liverpool and Swansea over the Christmas period. Betway price them at just 2/5 (1.40) to make it four wins in a row.

Derby were dealt a set back in the week with Wigan Athletic beating them 1-0 and bringing their nine game unbeaten run to an end.

McLaren has led his side to fourth position in the Championship, though, winning eight of their last 10 matches so they will feel they have a chance in this match. Betway price them at 6/1 (7.00) to cause a shock. The same firm price the draw at 7/2 (4.50).

With over 2.5 goals at 11/20 (1.55) and both teams to score at 13/20 (1.65) with Betway, both are too skinny to touch in this fixture.

Instead, it's worth looking at the both teams to score and result market to find a bet that stands out. With Chelsea looking in solid form, you can expect them to beat Derby in the end, but at 2/5 (1.40) their outright price offers little appeal.

However, Chelsea to win with both teams scoring at 9/5 (2.80) does stand out with Betway. Before their 1-0 loss at the weekend, Derby had scored in their last 14 games, so expect them to find the net, but the Blues should have too much for them in the FA Cup.
