Hello and welcome to our LIVE coverage of the first FA Cup semi-final clash between Chelsea and Manchester City at Wembley. So the quadruple is still on, but if anyone can stop Pep Guardiola in his tracks, it is the young upstart Thomas Tuchel. Bar the absurdity of the 5-2 defeat to West Brom, Chelsea have been near perfect under the German, but today will be an altogether more imposing test, as the City juggernaut is in town.

FT: CHELSEA ARE IN THE FINAL AGAIN! City's quadruple dream is over, as Chelsea reach the FA Cup final for the fourth time in five seasons. City never really got going, and one Hakim Ziyech finish was all it took. Thanks for joining us. Goodbye.

SAVE! Rodri with the header at the back post, but Kepa is down to palm the ball away. Easy save really.

NO GOAL! Pulisic does brilliantly to take the ball past Mendy before firing home, but the flag is up. Correct decision.

Change for Chelsea, and it is Thiago Silva, who will depart. When he does eventually go off...

OFFSIDE! Jesus drifts just offside as he lays it off for Sterling,. The finish from Sterling was dreadful.

Rodri with a shot from distance, that Kepa can get everything behind.

NO PENALTY! Azpilicueta tries to head clear and there are claims this brushes his arm. There's a brief check as Mike Dean consults VAR but no penalty is awarded.

On the break, Werner races down the field with the ball, takes it round Mendy, but he stab for goal is poor and easy for Steffen to gather.

He has been terrible today.

Foden dances past several Chelsea players before being fouled. Free-kick to City in a dangerous position.

Can Chelsea see this out and book yet another cup final appearance?

Foden has given City much more of a threat here. City are coming, and coming.

Not bad for a supposed struggling striker.

CHANCE! Rodri heads the cross back into the middle, but Dias cannot get over the header.

Fernandinho has been booked presumably for a late tackle. Chelsea feel he ought to have seen yellow much sooner.
