Manchester City vs. Chelsea: Head-to-head record and past meetings

Ahead of Saturday's FA Cup semi-final between Manchester City and Chelsea, Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at the head-to-head record and previous meetings between the two clubs.

Returning to Wembley Stadium for the first time since winning the FA Cup 10 months ago, holders Manchester City do battle with Chelsea in the semi-finals on Saturday evening.

The Citizens travel to the capital on the back of suffering penalty-shootout heartbreak at the hands of Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals on Wednesday night.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have not lost any of their last eight games in all tournaments since they were beaten 1-0 after extra time by Liverpool in the EFL Cup final in February, with Mauricio Pochettino's side most recently thumping Everton 6-0 in the Premier League on Monday.

Man City and Chelsea have already butted heads on two occasions this term and if those encounters, along with a host of others over the years, are anything to go by, supporters could be in for a treat under the Wembley arch this weekend.

Here, Sports Mole takes a closer look at the head-to-head record and previous meetings between the two clubs.

Head-to-head record

Previous meetings: 176
Manchester City wins: 63
Draws: 42
Chelsea wins: 71

Man City and Chelsea have locked horns a total of 176 times, with the West Londoners marginally leading the overall head-to-head record as they have won 71 games compared to the Citizens' 63, while 42 draws have been played out between the two clubs.

You have to go back 116 years for the very first encounter between these two teams, who played out a 2-2 draw in the top flight in front of 40,000 fans at Stamford Bridge back in December 1907.

In the Premier League era (since 1992-93), Chelsea have come out on top in 27 of their 54 meetings with Man City, losing 18 matches and drawing nine, but the Citizens have bested the Blues in five of their eight FA Cup encounters and have also won three out of four EFL Cup meetings, including one via a penalty shootout in the 2019 final.

The only other occasion when these two sides have faced off in a final of a major competition was in May 2021 when a first-half goal from Kai Havertz helped Chelsea secure a narrow 1-0 win over Man City in the Champions League showpiece event held in Istanbul.

Chelsea were the dominant side in this fixture with Man City during the first half of the Premier League era, as they registered 18 victories out of 24 and scored 45 goals in the process - their longest-ever winning run against the Citizens was an eight-match streak between December 2005 and March 2009.

However, the tides have since shifted into Man City's favour as they have come out on top in 16 of the last 30 top-flight battles with Chelsea, scoring a total of 47 goals. The West Londoners, meanwhile, have won nine times during this period and there have also been five draws.

Chelsea have failed to win any of their last eight meetings with Pep Guardiola's side in all competitions, losing six games in a row immediately after their aforementioned Champions League triumph over the Citizens in 2021, before playing out two entertaining draws in the Premier League this season.

One of the most enthralling top-flight games of the current campaign took place at Stamford Bridge when Chelsea and Man City shared the spoils in a 4-4 draw in November last year; Rodri thought he had won it for the visitors with an 86th-minute strike, but ex-City man Cole Palmer had the last laugh as he converted a 94th-minute penalty to salvage a point for Pochettino's men.

There was nothing to separate the two teams in their most recent meeting at the Etihad Stadium in February, as Rodri netted in the 83rd minute to cancel out a first-half strike from former Man City attacker Raheem Sterling and force a spirited Chelsea outfit to settle for only a point.

Man City legend Sergio Aguero is the all-time leading scorer in this fixture with 13 goals in 21 games, including two Premier League hat-tricks, while Frank Lampard, who represented both the Citizens and Chelsea, is next on the list with eight goals, including seven for the West Londoners. Former Chelsea forward Jimmy Greaves and ex-Man City duo Carlos Tevez and Francis Lee all scored six times.
