Quadruple-chasing Man City faces Chelsea in FA Cup semifinal

LONDON (AP) — Quadruple-chasing Manchester City will play Chelsea, and Leicester will take on Southampton, in the semifinals of the FA Cup.

Pep Guardiola’s City leads the Premier League by 14 points, plays Borussia Dortmund in the quarterfinals of the Champions League and will contest the League Cup final against Tottenham on April 25.

City will now also be at Wembley on the previous weekend to face Chelsea, which is enjoying a 14-match unbeaten run in all competitions since Thomas Tuchel replaced the fired Frank Lampard in January.

City dethroned Chelsea as FA Cup winners in 2019.

Leicester has lost four finals but has never lifted the cup, which Southampton did in 1976.
