City will take on West Ham after Sam Allardyce's men came from behind to beat Tottenham on Wednesday night, a result matched at over 100/1 in-play on Betfair.
But the Hammers will go no further in the competition according to the layers, who make them 14/1 outsiders of four ahead of their semi-final with Manuel Pellegrini's men, the general 10/11 favourites.
Manchester United boss David Moyes was delighted with his side's performance at Stoke, one which earned them a semi-final clash with Sunderland after their extra-time victory over Chelsea 24 hours earlier.
United will travel to Sunderland for the first leg of their semi-final before the return at Old Trafford, and are strongly fancied to progress to the final where they're expected to meet City. Sunderland can be backed at 12/1 to lift the trophy with Paddy Power, while United are priced as the big dangers to City at 6/4 generally.
West Ham's win also changed the shape of the next Spurs manager betting, with interim head coach Tim Sherwood eased to 5/1 by BetVictor having endured a nightmare start to his reign.
Glenn Hoddle was immediately cut to 3/1 by the same firm despite being twice that price with Sky Bet, while both Fabio Capello and Michael Laudrup were trading at single-figure prices on Wednesday night.
