Manchester City will take on Chelsea in the semi-finals of the FA Cup next month. This clash between the two teams has sparked debates already as to which team will win the fixture.
Late goals from Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin De Bruyne saw City past a dogged Everton 2-0 at Goodison Park on Saturday, keeping the Premier League leaders and EFL Cup finalists in contention across four major competitions.
That result meant City have won 25 of their past 26 games in all competitions, with Chelsea similarly enjoying a rich vein of form.
The Blues are undefeated in 14 games under head coach Thomas Tuchel, with Hakim Ziyech – their midweek Champions League hero against Atletico Madrid – sealing a 2-0 win over Sheffield United on Sunday at Stamford Bridge.
The other semi-final will see the winner of the match between Leicester City and Manchester United take on Southampton
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men swept aside Championship outfit Bournemouth 3-0 on Saturday, with Nathan Redmond netting a second-half brace.
A tougher test likely awaits against United or Leicester, each of whom boasts of 9-0 wins against Saints over the past two seasons.
Manchester City vs Chelsea: FA CUP Semi Final
The Manchester City vs Chelsea is expected to lead to the billing as both teams play the FA CUP Semi Final tie at Wembley on the weekend of April 17-18.
The FA CUP Semi Final between the two will not be a walk in the park for any of the two sides according to pundits.
Managers of both sides must dig deep into their match plans and players must give off 101% on the day to cling to victory.
