FA Cup: Chelsea to Knock Out Man City

City's record of winning just two of their six FA Cup semi-finals under Guardiola's watch is mediocre.

Manchester City have a vulnerable record in FA Cup semi-finals under Pep Guardiola.

This is always a fixture that causes them problems in that it falls bang in the middle of a hectic period of Champions League and Premier League matches where every game is so intense. And boy was that Real Madrid game intense on Wednesday.

City’s record of winning just two of their six FA Cup semi-finals under Guardiola’s watch is mediocre. Arsenal have dispatched them twice in 2017 and 2020, Liverpool managed it in 2022 and Chelsea beat them 1-0 in 2021 to end their quadruple bid.

And the victories they mustered came against Sheffield United last season when they were a Sky Bet Championship outfit and against Brighton when Chris Hughton was in charge, so not the dangerous and exciting Seagulls team of today.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are unbeaten in 12 games across all competitions in 90 minutes if you include the Carabao Cup final and have scored 26 goals in their last eight games, averaging over three goals a game. They’ve scored five goals against Man City already this season too, so it’s not that hard to make a case for Mauricio Pochettino’s team when analysing all the evidence.
