Blues look to book another Wembley date

 

City have already played at Wembley three times this season and can today book a fourth trip.

The FA Community Shield and Carabao Cup clashes with Chelsea and the Premier League game with Spurs all finished in victory without conceding a goal.

If the Blues can win in South Wales, it will give City fans yet another trip to North London and the chance of a first FA Cup final for six years.

 

TECHNIQUE: David Silva fires City into an early lead.
