Hello and welcome along to football.london’s live coverage of Chelsea’s FA Cup semi-final showdown with Manchester United at Wembley.
The Blues will be looking to build on their midweek 1-0 victory over already-relegated Norwich City in the Premier League and progress to the FA Cup Final and book an all-London affair with Arsenal on August 1.
Both Chelsea and United, who boast a 19-game unbeaten run ahead of this evening’s tussle under the Wembley Arch, have been battling away over the past few weeks in a battle for a top-four finish in the league, but all focus will be placed on trying to reach the final of the world’s oldest club competition this evening.
The Blues have already beaten Liverpool and Leicester City on route to the last-four, so the size of the task facing them this evening will not frighten Frank Lampard and his players all that much.
On what promises to be a massive night for both clubs, we will bring you all of the pre-match build-up, all the match action and post-match analysis, with our Chelsea correspondent, Oliver Harbord, inside a sparsely-populated Wembley to keep you right up to date.
