Machester city vs Chelsea: Good news for Tuchel as City confirm major star will be absent for FA Cup clash

Having sealed their place in the semi-finals of the Champions League, Manchester City take on fellow final four contenders Chelsea in the semi-finals of the FA Cup at Wembley on Saturday evening.

Pep Guardiola’s team beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 home and away to end their quarter-final hoodoo in the Champions League, with Phil Foden netting the winner in both legs as City secured a 4-2 aggregate triumph over the Bundesliga giants.

The quadruple dream is still very much alive for Guardiola, and he has very few selection concerns to contend with, but City were knocked out of this stage in the 2019-20 FA Cup to eventual winners Arsenal.

Soon-to-be free agent Sergio Aguero has suffered yet another injury blow after missing the second leg with Borussia Dortmund due to “niggles”, and the Argentine has not been able to participate in training recently, so a Wembley comeback is unlikely.
