The highlight of the Semi Final stage is the clash between Manchester City and Chelsea on Sunday April 18 at 2.25am AEST on ESPN.

Chelsea made it all the way to the FA Cup Final last season, only to fall to Arsenal at Wembley.

This time they run into a red-hot Manchester City who remain dominant in the Premier League, and hope that form translates to cup football.

Fans of the two heavyweights of English football will not be satisfied with a misstep this late in the tournament.

Chelsea have made it to three of the last four FA Cup Finals, whilst Manchester City last lifted the trophy in 2018-2019.

The second Semi Final on Monday April 19 sees Southampton square off with Leicester City at 3.25am AEST on ESPN.

Southampton have punched above their weight in the cup and will be dreaming of a return to the final for the first time since 2003.

Leicester City eliminated Manchester United in the last eight to book their first Semi Final berth since 1982, and will be favourites to send the Saints packing.

Brendan Rodgers men are still locked in the fight for a Champions League spot in the Premier League and a date at the FA Cup Final will only strengthen what has been a successful season.
