Chelsea to face Manchester City in FA Cup semi-final

Bring them on.

Chelsea’s FA Cup quarter-final encounter with Sheffield United was nervier than expected, with the Blades coming quite close to levelling the match before Hakim Ziyech’s late goal sealed the deal with a 2-0 win for the Blues. Up next at the semi-final stage, we have a much harder opponent to beat in Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Yesterday the Citizens beat Everton 2-0 to secure their spot in the semifinal. And it is also the hardest opponent we could get since the other side of the bracket have Leicester City — who have just beaten Manchester United 3-1 to make it through the quarter-final — and Southampton facing each other.

But as the saying goes, to be the best you need to beat the best. And City are certainly beatable, as shown by their 2-0 loss to Manchester United at the Etihad at the beginning of the month, putting an end to their 28-match unbeaten streak.

Exact dates and time for the matches are still undefined. But the semi-finals will both take place at Wembley during the week of April 17th.

Come on you Blues!
