John Terry, Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole are all missing from Chelsea's starting XI for today's FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City at Wembley.

John Terry, Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole have all been omitted from Chelsea's starting XI for today's FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City at Wembley.

Demba Ba leads the line for the Blues, who are unchanged following last weekend's 2-1 win over Sunderland.

David Silva has failed to recover from the injury that forced him off during City's 2-1 victory at Manchester United on Monday night.

However, Sergio Aguero, who scored the winner in that game, starts for Roberto Mancini's men.

Second-choice goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon has been selected ahead of Joe Hart for the Citizens.

The Romanian goalkeeper has kept a clean sheet in all four of City's FA Cup matches this season.

Chelsea: Cech; Azpilicueta, Ivanovic, Luiz, Bertrand; Ramires, Mikel; Hazard, Mata, Oscar; Ba
Subs: Turnbull, Terry, Ake, Lampard, Benayoun, Moses, Torres

Man City: Pantilimon; Zabaleta, Clichy, Kompany, Nastasic; Barry, Milner, Y Toure; Nasri, Aguero, Tevez
Subs: Hart, K Toure, Lescott, Kolarov, Garcia, Sinclair, Dzeko
