Can Manchester City replicate Old Trafford win at Wembley against Chelsea

April 14, 2013 By Abdullah Zubair
After downing Manchester United at Old Trafford, Manchester City will be looking to produce a similar performance against Chelsea in the semi-final of this season’s FA Cup at Wembley
Beating Manchester United at their own backyard is an achievement any side can be proud of. The achievement becomes even more special for a side like City that for almost two decades, could only look in envy over the success their neighbours had. However, the winds are clearly changing in Manchester with the ‘Blue moon’ rising.

Last weekend, Roberto Mancini’s side beat Manchester United 2-1 at Old Trafford in a vital Premier League encounter. The result means that the cash-laden side trails their bitter rivals by 12 points at the top of the table with just seven games left to play for.

However today, City players and coaching staff alike will not be thinking about the league as they prepare to take on Chelsea in the semi-final of the FA Cup at Wembley. All eyes will be on this encounter between two of the biggest teams in the country.

Indeed, the Citizens will be hoping to repeat a similar performance that guided them to a 2-1 win over Sir Alex Ferguson’s side. With the season rapidly drawing towards its conclusion, an FA Cup title seems to be a more easy chance of silverware for both sides.

Following Wigan Athletic’s win over Millwall last night, both sides know that they have a great chance of becoming FA Cup champions and use this trophy to justify their spending spree.

Over the years, Chelsea have become one of the biggest sides in European football, thanks to the spending sanctioned by owner Roman Abramovich. And Manchester City have also spent a huge amount of money on new recruits thanks to the investment made by their oil rich owners from the Middle East.

Thanks to so much investment, both sides boast some of the best offensive players in world football at the moment which makes today’s encounter a far cry from a dull one.

Manchester City might not be able to retain their Premier League title this time around so they know the importance of a win in today’s FA Cup game. During the game against Manchester United, City were perhaps not the most dominant side of the two but they managed to get the job done which is something the club has not done quite often this season.

With David Silva set to miss out the game, a lot of responsibility will lie on the shoulders of Yaya Toure. The Ivory Coast international has been a modicum of consistency for his side since the beginning of the season and his presence was sorely missed while he was away on African Cup of Nations duty earlier in January.

Furthermore, the former Barcelona man really has an appetite for the big games making him the focal point of all the good things City will do against Chelsea today.

However, with Chelsea always seeming to do well at the New Wembley, it will be quite interesting to see how the Citizens will make their recent advantage over the Londoners count.
