Chelsea are seeking to reach the FA Cup final for the 13th occasion.

Chelsea are appearing in our 12th FA Cup semi-final in the past 23 seasons.

This is Chelsea’s 22nd semi-final since the arrival of Roman Abramovich in 2003.

The Blues have won six of our previous seven FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley against Kerry Dixon’s Luton Town in 1994, Newcastle in 2000, Arsenal in 2009, Aston Villa in 2010 and Tottenham twice in 2012 and 2017. Our only defeat came in 2013 against Manchester City.

Willy Caballero is the only Blues player to start all five FA Cup games this term.

Eden Hazard’s goal at St Mary’s last week was his 88th for the Blues. He is now our 12th all-time highest scorer in all competitions.
