Chelsea will be looking to take advantage of an extra 48 hours of rest over Manchester City when when they meet at Wembley on Saturday evening.

The Blues are seeking to reach a fourth FA Cup final in five years while their opponents are aiming to be crowned winners for the second season in a row.

Mauricio Pochettino confirmed that Enzo Fernandez has trained well ahead of the FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City and will be in the squad for the clash at Wembley.


The 23-year-old was absent on Monday evening as the Blues defeated Everton 6-0 at Stamford Bridge. Yet Enzo was back in training on Wednesday evening and has been involved in our pre-match preparations.


What Pochettino has said: ‘He has trained really well the last few days and is going to be part of the squad tomorrow,’ explained Pochettino. ‘We always assess him day by day and we need to protect him because he is a young guy who is important for the present and for the future.

‘The most important thing is he needs to be ready to perform at his best. We don’t want heroes [who play injured], we want players who can perform in their best way to help the team achieve what we want.’
