FA Cup: Manchester City vs Chelsea

Manchester City will play Chelsea at Wembley in an attempt to win the FA Cup for a record second time. The semi-final matchup follows Manchester City’s elimination from the Champions League on penalties against Real Madrid.

It means there will not be another triple crown, but last weekend’s league mistakes by both Arsenal and Liverpool increased their chances of winning two trophies. However, Chelsea will have their sights set on winning some silverware of their own as they attempt to cap off a mixed first season under manager Mauricio Pochettino.

When is Manchester City vs Chelsea?

At Wembley Stadium, Manchester City vs. Chelsea is scheduled to begin at 5:15 BST on Saturday, April 20.

How can I watch it?

BBC One will broadcast live coverage of the match beginning at 4.45 p.m. for viewers in the United Kingdom. There will be a live stream accessible on BBC Sport and BBC iPlayer.

Team updates

Kevin De Bruyne is fit despite also requesting to be substituted before extra time, but Erling Haaland is questionable after the striker was unable to continue against Real Madrid. Although there are not any significant new injury concerns for Manchester City, managing the workload will be crucial given that the Real Madrid second leg went into overtime. After his hamstring problem, Kyle Walker was able to play the whole game, but he might be given another opportunity to heal now.

After missing the 6-0 victory over Everton, Raheem Sterling, Enzo Fernandez, and Axel Disasi are back in “partial training,” while Christopher Nkunku is still out. Wesley Fofana, Reece James, and Levi Colwill are still absent from Chelsea.

Expected lineups

Manchester City XI: Ortega; Lewis, Stones, Dias, Ake; Rodri; Foden, Silva, De Bruyne, Doku; Alvarez.

Chelsea XI: Petrovic; Gusto, Disasi, Silva, Chilwell; Fernandez, Caicedo, Gallagher; Palmer, Jackson, Sterling.


Manchester City reach the final. Manchester City 3-1 Chelsea.
