Opinion: Strong Chelsea Starting Lineup To Stop Man City From Winning Quadruple This Season


Chelsea will be facing Manchester city tonight in a mouth watering semi Final in FA Cup. Chelsea won the trophy I 2018 after beating Manchester United 1-0. Last season they were finalists in the FA, after they were beaten by Arsenal 2-1. They will be aiming to stop the high flying citizens who are destined to win quadruple this season.

Manchester City remain favourites heading into the game as they have not only been in terrific form in the league and Europe, but also because of their head-to-head record with Chelsea in the FA Cup. The London side have been on the losing end in four of their last five encounters with Manchester City in the FA Cup.

In the only meeting between the two sides this season, Manchester City beat Chelsea 3-1 at Stamford Bridge.

However Chelsea are having injuries issues with Kovacic destined to miss the action. Christensen is another player who is a doubt having missed the previous champions League game that saw blues beaten 1-0 by FC Porto.

The predicted lineup is as follows.
