Chelsea FC v Manchester City Football Match – 14.04.2013 – FA Cup Preview, Prediction, Squad
Chelsea FC v Manchester City Football Match will be played on 14.04.2013 at Wembley Stadium (London) for an FA Cup match. Chris Foy will be the match referee.
The FA Cup holders Chelsea will be looking to continue defending their record as they were winners in 4 of the last 6 seasons in 7 overall. They won 22 out of 27 FA Cup matches and will be looking to add more silverware to their trophy cabinet this season. Chelsea has been in good form lately, and having beaten Manchester United in the F.A Cup by 1-0 playing at home. They have good records playing in Wembley stadium and will be looking to knock out Premier League holders Manchester City in this match. The winners will then go on to play Wigan Athletic or Millwall in the Finals. Chelsea are currently 13 matches unbeaten in the F.A. Cup and their last loss was against Everton, which ended in a 1-1 draw and decided in Penalties.
Man City have been unbeaten in 4 matches in the F.A Cup, their last loss was against Manchester United playing at home with a 2-3 scoreline last season. This will be Manchester City’s last chance of silverware this season, realistically they are very unlikely to win back to back Premier League titles this season, as they are 12 points behind leaders and rivals Manchester United. David Silva is said to be in doubt to play this match, as he suffered an injury in the Manchester Derby against Man United earlier this week.
I predict Chelsea will win this match. Statistics show that Chelsea have had an impressive record in the F.A Cup and will have a higher chance to win this match if they can play at their top level. This game will not be easy for both teams.
The match will begin on April 14, 2013 4:00 PM BST
Match Prediction: Chelsea Win. Correct Score 2-1
