Is Man City v Chelsea on TV? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch FA Cup semi-final

Manchester City will continue their chase of a second consecutive FA Cup crown as they take on Chelsea at Wembley.

The semi-final clash comes hot on the heels of Manchester City’s Champions League exit on penalties to Real Madrid.

It means there will be no repeat treble, but their chances of twin trophies were boosted by league slip-ups for both Arsenal and Liverpool last weekend.

Chelsea, though, will have designs on silverware of their own as they bid to make a strong finish to a mixed first campaign under Mauricio Pochettino.
