Chelsea face Manchester City in the semi-finals of the FA Cup on Saturday evening at Wembley.
Both sides will be kick on from their Champions League progressions in midweek to book their place in the final, after they both sealed semi-final spots, seeing off FC Porto and Borussia Dortmund respectively.
Manchester City have been defensively solid this season as the partnership of Ruben Dias and John Stones blossoms. But Stones’ error against Leeds show they still have a mistake in them. Chelsea also are much-improved, particularly since the arrival of Tuchel who has made sure to tighten up the backline.
Anything can happen in a semi-final. It’s going to be a tight tactical affair at Wembley, and it will be a case of taking the chances when they come. Chelsea have proved they can score goals, as have City, but both have been wasteful in front of goal in recent games and Saturday will be an occasion where both teams will be hoping for a change of fortunes, wanting everything they touch and hit turning to gold and goals.
City want and are on the right course to complete the quadruple; Tuchel will have an eye on getting his first piece of silverware as Blues boss and the FA Cup is the perfect chance for him to tick a trophy off the list.
