Chelsea vs Manchester City, FA Cup: You pick the starting lineup
Chelsea are one match away from getting back to the FA Cup final and attempt to do one better than last year, however that one match is a fairly troublesome one, as it’s against the Premier League champions-elect.
Manchester City have already ran away with the title this season, and surprisingly a relative blip recently, losing two of their last five class games, won’t change that.
Manchester City in the mean time have effectively won the League Cup and are particularly on course to complete a quadruple, having also reached semifinal Champions League, where they will take on PSG (while Chelsea take on Real Madrid in the other semifinal).
The two teams had midweek responsibilities thusly but neither are probably going to pass over this game as irrelevant. There is a spot in the final on the line after all.
Mateo Kovačić being ruled out with a hamstring injury is a major blow for Chelsea, while a few questions remain over Andreas Christensen’s fitness too.
