Watch Live Stream From Here
Manchester City plays Chelsea for the second time in a week, this time the match in the Union, which is a match in the third round of the FA Cup.
The Premier League and the UEFA Cup may have been dominated by the home team in recent years, but that was not the case in the FA Cup. They've won the cup in 2011 and 2019, but they've only been successes since 1969.
City have reached the semi-finals in five of the past six seasons and have not lost since 2012 in the third round. Three of their four matches played since the English season resumed have been won, the other being a 1-1 home draw with Everton.
City won 1-0 at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night, a victory they probably value more than winning the FA Cup. They will make changes for this game but considering the bench they had for Thursday's game
Manchester City vs Chelsea
Chelsea have had far more success in the FA Cup than their rivals. Londoners have lifted the trophy five times this century and have been finalists in the past three seasons.
They haven't been knocked out in the third round since 1998, but this is the toughest draw they can get. The loss on Thursday left them in 10th place in the Premier League and making it even more difficult for them to reach the Champions League next season.
Chelsea have won only one of their last six official matches, and before losing to City, they could only draw against relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest. They have lost three of their last four away matches and also lost a friendly match away to Aston Villa. Return the city to get the win.
