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

Chelsea defeated Leicester City in the quarter-finals, while Manchester City defeated Newcastle.

The FA Cup holders are unbeaten in 22 games in all competitions. Manchester City are looking to land the FA Cup for the eighth time in their history which would see them move level with Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham and mean that only United (12) and Arsenal (14) have won more.

Manchester City have now set a record in the FA Cup, as City are the first team in FA Cup history to reach the semi-finals in six consecutive seasons.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has hailed Manchester City as a special club after City became the first team in the history of the FA Cup to reach the semi-finals in six consecutive seasons.

“After we won the treble, and five titles, we’re coming to the international break with two months left and to be in contention for all the titles means a lot,” Pep Guardiola said.

“I know people talk about the Premier League, the Champions League, but to have won four Carabao Cups and (reach) six FA Cup semi-finals in a row, this team, this club, has something special, so it’s incredible.

“Of course we want to win all of them but sometimes this is not possible basically for the quality of the opponents and the schedule we have…but we were there six times in a row.

“Always you can have a bad night or a bad afternoon and to be there six times, you didn’t have a bad night. And for those that doubt the consistency of the team you prove they are wrong.”
