Chelsea team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Manchester City

Sports Mole rounds up all of Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of this weekend's FA Cup semi-final with Manchester City.

Chelsea will take on runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City in the semi-finals of the FA Cup on Saturday evening.

The Blues, who beat Crystal Palace 4-1 in the league last weekend, are currently fifth in the table, one point behind fourth-placed West Ham United.

Thomas Tuchel's side managed to book their spot in the semi-finals of the Champions League on Tuesday night, meanwhile, despite suffering a 1-0 defeat to Porto in the second leg of their last-eight tie.

Chelsea reached the final of last season's FA Cup but ultimately fell short as they went down 2-1 to London rivals Arsenal.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of the team's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their meeting with Pep Guardiola's side.
