LIVE FA Cup action April 17th


Join us on eir sport 1 from 5.20pm on Saturday, April 17th 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.

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 Premier League top four after a shaky start to the season. Like City, they have also qualified for the quarter-finals of the Champions League.    

Chelsea last won the trophy 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 on April 17th for what promises to be one of the most exciting semi-final clashes in years.
