FA Cup semi-final draw: Chelsea face Crystal Palace as Manchester City Face Winner of Nottingham Forest vs Liverpool
THE FA Cup is heading into its last four as teams dream of the Wembley final in May.
Chelsea are through after a 2-0 win at Middlesbrough in front of a small portion of away fans due to government sanctions on Roman Abramovich.
And they will face Crystal Palace, who secured a crushing victory over ex-Blue Frank Lampard’s Everton.
Title contenders to face off?
Chelsea will fancy their chances of making the FA Cup final for a second year running.
Patrick Vieira is quietly confident about his side however and will be aiming to lead Palace to their first final since 2016.
Meanwhile, Liverpool and Manchester City will take their title fight to Wembley, unless Forest produce a shock in this evening’s match.
