For Chelsea, it represents a chance to return to the FA Cup final, to erase memories of their disappointing defeat to Leicester City a year ago. The reigning European champions’ reign is nearly over, and Thomas Tuchel has just one final shot at claiming a major trophy in his first full season at Chelsea.

For Crystal Palace, a victory would see first-year manager Patrick Vieira them club back to the FA Cup final for the first time since 2016 (lost to Manchester United) and just the second time in club history (1990 FA Cup final, also lost to Manchester United). Vieira has already worked a minor miracle to clear out a rebuild nearly half of Crystal Palace’s squad in his debut season, thus raising expectations for next season, even before reaching the FA Cup semifinals.
