Manchester City and Chelsea face off at Wembley on Saturday in the first of the two FA Cup semi-finals.

City are back in action after their Champions League defence was ended by Real Madrid in midweek, while Chelsea are hoping to go one better in their silverware hunt after losing out to Liverpool in the EFL Cup final earlier in the season.

I’ve covered the game in detail in our dedicated Match Predictions section and have now put together this 80/1 Ultimate Bet Builder Tip by focusing on the player markets.

I’ve used Paddy Power to slip up this bet, and new customers can take advantage of their bet builder sign-up offer using the button below.

Cole Palmer To Score Anytime

Former City man Cole Palmer looks a strong contender for an anytime goal. Players tend to raise their levels against their former teams and he has scored against City once this term, while he comes into the tie in red hot form with 11 goals across his last six games. Palmer will also be on spot kick duties for the Londoners.

Cole Palmer To Be Shown A Card

Palmer could well end the day with both a goal and a card based on his previous performances against his former employers. Palmer was booked in both Premier League games against City and both of those yellow cards came before the hour mark, while he has been booked on five other occasions across a further 25 appearances in the league. Palmer was also booked in his last game at Wembley in Chelsea’s defeat to Liverpool on penalties in the EFL Cup final, although that card did come in extra time.

Phil Foden To Score or Assist

Phil Foden is enjoying an exceptional campaign for Manchester City but he was one of a number of players who perhaps underperformed in Wednesday’s Champions League exit. Foden should be able to bounce back here with either a goal or an assist, however, as he has four goals across his last three games and has managed 14 goals and seven assists in 30 Premier League appearances.

Rodri To Have 1+ Shots On Target

Manchester City midfielder Rodri has some appeal at evens to record a shot on target. Rodri scored in both Premier League games with Chelsea and has been getting chances lately. The Spaniard had two attempts against Real Madrid, one on target and one blocked, and averages 2.0 shots-per-game in the Premier League. He tends to be fairly accurate with his attempts, averaging 1.3 shots per-game either on target or blocked in league play so he should be able to at least test the keeper at Wembley.
