    FA Cup Semi Final

    Manchester City won the FA Cup in 2011, Chelsea won it in 2012.

    Now it's 2013 and most wouldn't disagree on the fact that whoever comes out on top in this match will be red hot favourites for the Cup.

    Team News

    Chelsea

    - Cahill (Knee), Romeu (Knee) and Cole (Hamstring)all out.
    - Hazard, Mata and Ba all due to return after midweek EL.

    Manchester City

    - Richards (Knee), Rodwell (Hamstring) and Maicon (foot) out.
    - Silva doubtful

    I'm expecting a Chelsea win. We've managed to find some recent form and are playing extremely good football. I don't know who out of Ba or Torres will start, but they're both bound to feature in the game. We're due a win against City this season and I can see us getting a couple of goals on the counter.

    Very strong line up for Chelsea. I think we can justify leaving Lampard on the bench as Mikel - Ramires is our strongest CDM line up by far. I expect Lampard and Torres to make an appearance, maybe Moses if Oscar isn't performing.

    Toure is such a tank. Imagine him barging into you at full pelt.

    I knew Torres wasn't going to start but I was still hoping he was. Hope he gets a decent amount of game time second half.

    Quite surprised about that tbh; especially with Mikel and Ramires in the middle.

    We should just stop trying long passes.

    Need to either prevent city pressure and regain the ball somehow. Also need midfielders to press more and move faster in the counter attack.
    Zabaleta should be given a yellow.

    Why is townsend saying that shouldn't be given a yellow **** off he basically grabbed him.
