Match Preview

Chelsea and Manchester City will tackle each other in the 2020/2021 FA Cup semifinals, Saturday (17/4/2021). This is a big chance for both teams to add to their trophy collections.

Chelsea and City both deserve to qualify for the top party, where they will face either Southampton or Leicester City.

In the Premier League, Chelsea is still competing to enter the top four. Meanwhile, City is leading the standings and is getting closer to the title. In the Champions League, Chelsea and City are the two representatives of England in the semifinals.

Chelsea and City have met once this season, namely in Week 17 of the Premier League. Playing at home at that time, when they were still handled by Frank Lampard, Chelsea was forced to give up 1-3 by City.

At that time, Josep Guardiola's team took a 3-0 lead through goals from Ilkay Gundogan, Phil Foden, and Kevin De Bruyne, while Chelsea only managed to score one consolation goal through Callum Hudson-Odoi.

This time, City will face Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea, which is much more solid. With Tuchel, Chelsea has won 12 victories and only lost twice in 18 matches in all competitions. Tuchel's Chelsea has also scored a total of 25 goals and conceded only nine times.

In the middle of last week, Chelsea lost 0-1 to host Porto in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final round but qualified 2-1 on aggregate. Meanwhile, City beat host Borussia Dortmund 2-1 and escaped with a 4-2 aggregate advantage over the German representatives.

Who will go the farthest in the FA Cup, Chelsea or Manchester City?
