STRENGTH: Sane and Traore battle for the ball.

Manchester City will be ball number two in Monday evening's FA Cup semi-final draw.

City are on the way to Wembley after sinking Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium on Saturday, with David Silva and Sergio Aguero scoring in a dominant performance.

The draw takes place after the Chelsea v United game and is expected to be at around 9.30pm, barring extra time and penalties in that match. 

With FA Cup progression secured, Guardiola's side - who are now 11 unbeaten in all competitions - must quickly turn the focus to the Champions League ahead of Wednesday's second leg against Monaco.
