Chelsea v Man City LIVE this Saturday


Join us on eir sport 1 from 5.20pm this Saturday for LIVE coverage of the FA Cup semi-final meeting of Chelsea and Manchester City at Wembley.

Pep Guardiola's side are chasing an unprecedented quadruple of Champions League, Premier League, League Cup and FA Cup and who would bet against them achieving just that after the form they've shown over the past few months with just two defeats in 29 games.

They are in the last four of the Champions League after dispatching Borussia Dortmund 4-2 on aggregate in their last eight tie. They now face PSG in the last four.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have been reborn since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel who replaced Frank Lampard as manager at the end of January. 

The Blues went 14 games unbeaten, the longest in the club's history, before losing to West Brom over Easter.

However, that run has seen them firmly established in the race for a top four Premier League finish after a shaky start to the season. 

Like City, they have also qualified for the semi-finals of the Champions League following their 2-1 aggregate victory over Porto this week. They now face Real Madrid in the semi-finals.  

Chelsea last won the FA Cup, the oldest club football cup competition in the world, in 2018 when the beat Man Utd 1-0 in the final. 

City won it the following year with a 6-0 trouncing of Watford. 

Who will make it to the final this year? Join us this Saturday for what promises to be one of the most exciting semi-final clashes in years.
