Chelsea v Brentford Odds: Back Lampard to score in a Chelsea win

West London rivals Chelsea and Brentford reunite on Sunday lunchtime in an FA Cup fourth round replay at Stamford Bridge. The League One side stunned their Premier League opponents in the first tie by claiming a shock 2-2 draw, and it could have been even better if it weren't for a rare Fernando Torres late equaliser.

Sunday's match, which is live on ITV 1, is likely to be a completely different story. Chelsea are expected to field a strong squad to ensure that they progress through to the last 16, which would set up a trip to Championship side Middlesbrough later this month.

Chelsea go into the match as the extremely short 1/7 favourites to win in 90 minutes with bookmakers Paddy Power and, considering that they have only once in the last 14 years failed to reach the fifth round, it will be one of the major upsets in recent history if they fail to progress. Meanwhile Brentford can be backed at lengthy odds of 16/1, with a draw priced at 7/1.

Brentford twice took the lead at Griffin Park three weeks ago but they were unable to hold on and claim a major scalp. Having won the FA Cup in four of the last six years it cannot be doubted that the competition means a huge deal to Chelsea and they will be taking the rematch very seriously. Should they lose then interim manager Rafa Benitez will almost certainly be given the chop, which adds to the overwhelming pressure already on his shoulders following a number of mixed results.

If Chelsea race out of the blocks it could easily turn out to be a case of how many, with 4-0 a tempting scoreline at 17/2, while they are available at 7/4 to score four or more goals. Frank Lampard has been in absolutely stunning form of late with seven goals in his last eight league games. The majestic midfielder is available at evens to score anytime and 11/10 to score in a home win.

Elsewhere Demba Ba is the 13/5 favourite to open the scoring at Stanford Bridge, while Victor Moses could be worth backing at 6/1 in the latest betting with PaddyPower.

Brentford go into the match on a shaky run of form having won just one of their last six games. However, that win came during the week at home to Stevenage, which will boost their confidence ever so slightly.

The Bees have been handed long odds of 16/1 to come away with a victory in 90 minutes meaning they may we worth taking a look at the handicap market. The Bees can be backed at 13/8 to win with a +2.0 advantage, while a +3.0 margin is priced at 4/6. Clayton Donaldon is available at 3/1 in the anytime goalscorer market, while Marcello Trotta can be found at 7/2 to once again get his name on the scoresheet.
