Just a week after they drew 2-2 in an epic Premier League clash at the Etihad Stadium, Liverpool and City go head-to-head with both teams also in the Champions League semifinals and everything set up for a potential UCL final.

Liverpool beat Nottingham Forest 1-0 at the City Ground in the quarterfinals , hours after Man City got a soft penalty and overcame a loud St. Mary’s to produce an eventual 4-1 win over Southampton.

Elsewhere, Chelsea rode a couple of solid goals to a win over Middlesbrough in the last eight, in doing so getting a London derby semifinal. Their opponent? Crystal Palace, who waltzed past Everton 4-0 in their quarterfinal at Selhurst Park.

There has not been a repeat winner since Arsenal won the 2013-14 and 2014-15 FA Cups and will not be until at least next season now that Leicester City’s been bounced from the 2021-22 tournament.
