Drawn at home to 33/1 (34.00) Brighton and Hove Albion in the quarter-finals, Jose Mourinho’s men look like worthy 2/1 (3.00) favourites with dabblebet to lift this trophy for the second time in three seasons.
However, Tottenham Hotspur’s own European exit will also see them place extra onus on the cup, with Mauricio Pochettino keen to claim a first piece of silverware at the club.
With a trip to 25/1 (26.00) Swansea City to contend with in the quarter-finals, Spurs are priced at 9/4 (3.25) to finally add a winners’ medal to their list of accolades after an impressive few seasons under their Argentine boss.
Also knocked out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage, Chelsea can be backed at 7/2 (4.50) to rescue what has been a disappointing campaign by going one better than last season’s final defeat to Arsenal.
Nevertheless, the ultimate dark horses left in the competition are undoubtedly League One Wigan Athletic.
The Latics caused one of the biggest giant killings in recent memory by beating Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in the last round, and have already beaten three top-flight teams in this season’s competition.
