(Video) Steven Mcinerney previews Manchester City’s FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea

Esteemed Kompany host Steven Mcinerney previews today’s FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea alongside Mulv from the Noisy Neighbours podcast in the video below. It is yet another big game for Pep Guardiola’s side. Today’s FA Cup semi-final comes fresh off the heel of their midweek penalty shootout defeat and subsequent UEFA Champions League quarter-final exit at the hands of Real Madrid. Given what’s at stake this season, it is another huge test for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Today’s game will see Manchester City take on a familiar foe. Both meetings between the two teams have ended in draws so far this season. Mauricio Pochettino’s side does appear ideally suited to pose the FA Cup holders’ problems at Wembley. Teams that can break quickly and sit deep have caused Manchester City problems, and that appears to be the strength of today’s opponent. With familiar faces such as the red hot Cole Palmer and Raheem Sterling in the Chelsea lineup City will know the threat posed by Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

It will be interesting to see what lineup Pep Guardiola elects to go with today. Following 120 minutes of breathless football against Real Madrid, the City squad will be battling fatigue today. But it is something the treble winners have become accustomed to in recent seasons. A tough opponent and a battle of physical and mental fatigue awaits Manchester City today.
