FA Cup glory in sight for Chelsea and Manchester City

City go into the game buoyed by their 2-1 victory at derby rivals United in the Premier League on Monday, although the leaders' advantage remains an imposing 12 points. Improbably, Sunday's game represents the first encounter between the teams in the FA Cup since 1971, when City prevailed 3-0 in a fourth-round tie at Stamford Bridge.

London: Manchester City and holders Chelsea will both seek to transform underwhelming domestic seasons when the two Premier League heavyweights clash in the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

The pair have failed to keep pace with Manchester United in the league, and although Chelsea have also reached the last four in the Europa League, the FA Cup represents City's only realistic chance of ending the season with some silverware.

As an added incentive, the other semi-final features second-tier Millwall and perennial Premier League relegation candidates Wigan Athletic, so whoever emerges victorious on Sunday will be overwhelming favourites to lift the trophy.
