Roberto Martinez was delighted with his side as they swept past Stevenage in the fourth round, and their reward for doing so is a home tie with 40/1 chances Swansea.

Everton are now challenging for second-favouritism after Manchester City were drawn to host Chelsea while Liverpool must travel to the Emirates Stadium to take on Arsenal.

City were trimmed to 11/4 by Paddy Power but Coral took the unusual step of easing all four sides - City to 100/30, Arsenal to 9/2, Chelsea to 11/2 and Liverpool to 6/1 - while Ladbrokes pushed Manuel Pellegrini's men out to a standout 7/2.

Arsenal can be backed at 5/1 with Betfred and BetVictor, the latter are alongside 888sport in quoting 6/1 about Chelsea while Liverpool are available at 8/1 with bet365.

With the big four remaining sides drawn together, several other ties involve two teams who've been cut. One such example is Sunderland v Southampton, with Sunderland into 28/1 with Coral and Saints now 16/1 with Ladbrokes.

Cardiff are 33/1 ahead of their clash with holders Wigan, who can be backed at 100/1 for an unlikely repeat. Hull are the same price ahead of a trip to Brighton, while Fulham will face either Nottingham Forest or Preston if they come through a replay with Sheffield United and are 40/1.
