Predicted Chelsea XI vs Manchester City with Fernandez snubbed

Predicted Chelsea XI vs Manchester City with Fernandez snubbed

Mauricio Pochettino faces one of his biggest and most crucial team selections of the season on Saturday as Chelsea take on Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final.

The Blues return to Wembley Stadium for the second time this season, almost two months after agonisingly losing to Liverpool in the Carabao Cup final. A lot has happened since then, though, and Pochettino would like to think his team has improved, albeit marginally.

Chelsea demolished Everton 6-0 on Monday night in the Premier League in what was ideal preparation coming into the cup semi-final. However, Man City, the reigning treble-winners and holders of this very competition, are a much sterner test for the Blues.

After such a resounding victory earlier in the week, will Pochettino be tempted to stay more or less the same in terms of who walks out onto the pitch at Wembley? See predicted lineup below.

GK: Djordje Petrovic

RB: Malo Gusto

CB: Trevoh Chalobah

CB: Thiago Silva

LB: Marc Cucurella
