Manchester City have been drawn against Chelsea in the semi-final of the FA Cup.

The blues beat Everton 2-0 on Saturday to reach their third semi-final in consecutive seasons as they pursue a seventh FA Cup in their history.

The blues last won the trophy in 2019 when they beat Watford 6-0 at Wembley, and becoming the first club to complete a domestic treble of Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup. And with the blues inching their way towards the league title and face Spurs in the League Cup final, another treble is on the cards.

City last faced Chelsea in the FA Cup in 2016, a 5th round tie which a depleted City side lost 5-1 at Stamford Bridge, while the two teams last met at this stage of the competition back in 2013, when Samir Nasri and Sergio Aguero sent City to Wembley with a 2-1 win.

The semi-final will be played on the weekend of 17/18 April at Wembley, with the winners facing either Southampton or Leicester in the Final.
