The semi finals of the FA Cup will be played at Wembley this coming weekend with four of England’s biggest clubs set to battle it out for a place in the final.

Man City vs Arsenal

The Gunners are in a rough patch right now with fans protesting against manager Arsene Wenger after watching their club free-fall out of the top four in the Premier League following a poor run of results.

With the supporters unsettled in north London, perhaps it’s no surprise that you can still buy tickets online at Ticketbis for what’s expected to be an exciting game.

Like Arsenal, Pep Guardiola’s side have struggled to keep clean sheets this season so we should see goals in a game between arguably the best two attacking teams in England.

City currently sit above Arsenal in the table and are in the better form coming in to the game but the Gunners have a superb record in the FA Cup having lifted the trophy twice in the last three years so you can’t discount the north Londoners from booking their place at yet another final.

Chelsea vs Tottenham

The second semi final sees the Premier League’s top two face-off against each other on Saturday evening in a game that could have a pivotal affect on where the title ends up this season.

Chelsea’s lead at the top was cut to just four points following their defeat at Manchester United on Sunday after Spurs applied the pressure with a 4-0 thrashing of Bournemouth.

If Antonio Conte’s men beat Tottenham in the FA Cup this weekend then it may give them the confidence they need to get over the finish line to reclaim the title.

However, should Tottenham come out victorious at Wembley, it would further dent Chelsea’s belief and give Spurs a huge boost as they look to chase down their London rivals.

It’s promising to be an intriguing game and Spurs may be the slight favourites given their recent superb form, however, they don’t have a good record at Wembley so my money would be on Chelsea to book their place in the final.
