Manchester City have been dropped to 4/1 second favourites with Ladbrokes to win this year’s FA Cup after their 4-2 victory at Scunthorpe United in the fourth round.

City overcame a potential banana skin on Sunday to book a fifth round tie at home to Stoke, the conquerors of Arsenal in the fourth round, and have been installed as second favourites for the cup behind Chelsea.

The Blues are 7/4 down from 11/4 for the trophy after their win at Preston, with a home tie against Championship side Cardiff in the next round their reward.

Carling Cup finalists Aston Villa, who went through after a 3-2 win over Brighton, are down to 7/1 third favourites ahead of Tottenham, who have the unenviable task of a replay against giant killers Leeds at Elland Road after they were held back by a 95th minute Jermaine Beckford penalty, are at 8/1.

Fulham, who overcame Accrington Stanley, are at 14/1 whilst on-form Birmingham are available at a best price 16/1 with Bet365.

League Two Notts County, the lowest ranked team still in the competition as they prepare for a replay with Wigan, are priced at 1500/1 with Victor Chandler.
