Manchester City will face Sheffield United in Semi-finals of the 2022/2023 FA Cup which can be watched via live streaming on Soccer TV on Saturday, April 22 2023, ET.
Manchester City will face Sheffield United in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, April 23, 2023. The match will kick off at 17:30 local time.
City are aiming to win their first FA Cup since 2019, when they completed a domestic treble under Pep Guardiola. They have reached the semi-finals for the fifth consecutive season, a feat that only Arsenal have matched in the history of the competition. City have also been impressive in Europe, as they knocked out Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals with a 4-1 aggregate win.
City are in fine form at the moment, having gone unbeaten in their last 15 games in all competitions. They have scored 3+ goals in ten of those games, and have also closed the gap with Arsenal at the top of the Premier League. Guardiola will be hoping to emulate his former rival Sir Alex Ferguson, who led Manchester United to a historic treble in 1999.
City have a strong record at the ‘new’ Wembley Stadium, having won 12 of their 23 games there since it reopened in 2007. However, they have also lost four of their last five visits there, including a 1-0 defeat to Arsenal in last season’s FA Cup semi-final. City will also be wary of their opponents, as they have not beaten Sheffield United in the FA Cup since 1906.
Sheffield United are back in the FA Cup semi-finals for the first time since 2014, when they lost 5-3 to Hull City after leading 2-1 at half-time. The Blades are also close to securing promotion to the Premier League, as they are second in the Championship table with six games left. They have won six of their last seven games in all competitions, including a 1-0 win over Bristol City in midweek.
Sheffield United have shown great resilience and determination in their cup run, as they have scored in the final 20 minutes of play in each of their last four FA Cup games. They have also eliminated two Premier League teams on their way to the semi-finals: Aston Villa and Tottenham. Paul Heckingbottom’s side will be hoping to cause another upset and reach their first FA Cup final since 1936.
Jack Grealish and Sander Berge are two players to watch tonight. Grealish scored for Aston Villa in last season’s FA Cup semi-final against Liverpool, but he was on the losing side that day. The England international has been linked with a move to City in the summer, and he will be keen to impress Guardiola with his creativity and flair. Grealish has six decisive goals (four goals and two assists) in his last six games for club and country.
Sander Berge has been a key player for Sheffield United since joining from Genk in January. The Norway international has scored three goals and provided two assists in his last seven games for the Blades. Berge is a powerful and versatile midfielder who can break up play and drive forward with the ball. He will be tasked with stopping City’s midfield dominance and creating chances for his teammates.
