Manchester City vs Chelsea Live: FA Cup semi-final latest results and goals updates as Nicholas Jackson misses a huge chance
Guardiola: Manchester City gave an exceptional performance against Real Madrid despite exiting the Champions League

The dream of winning a treble in a row is over for Manchester City after losing on penalties to Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday. Now, Pep Guardiola's side must focus their efforts on the remaining domestic matches as they search for silverware this season.

The team currently sit top of the Premier League, after both Liverpool and Arsenal dropped points last time out, and are favorites to regain their title while today's outing sees them targeting a place in the FA Cup Final. This is the seventh time in eight seasons that City have appeared in the semi-finals although they have only advanced twice in their last six attempts.

Standing in their way this afternoon is the rising Chelsea team led by Mauricio Pochettino. The Blues have reached three of the last four FA Cup finals (although winning none of them) and thrashed Everton 6-0 on Monday night as former City player Cole Palmer scored four goals. The striker will be crucial in Chelsea's bid to defeat their rivals today having already enjoyed success against his old club earlier in the season.

Manchester City 0-0 Chelsea

48 minutes: Two big chances for Jackson! They both missed!

Chelsea should be 1-0 up and Pochettino won't believe they're not. Ol Jackson sneaked in from the left, but was unable to reduce his shot past Ortega. Palmer then had a great chance for Jackson at the back post, but his header was straight at Ortega again!

I have to say Walker slept on both.

Minute 47: A strange start for City, as Ortega cleared the ball, giving Madueke the opportunity to shoot on goal. It's wide.

Walker also picked up Gallagher, so there are further signs that City have yet to wake up at the start of the second half.

And we're back in business again!

A place in the FA Cup Final against Manchester United or Coventry City is now up for grabs.

Or will City go to extra time for the second time in four days?

Half the time! Manchester City 0-0 Chelsea

The biggest chance of the half. We've seen it before from Jackson this season.

Half the time! Manchester City 0-0 Chelsea

All squares and no goals at Wembley.

It was a lively half and both teams had their moments.

But Chelsea are in the game and will be happy with what they have done so far.

Few shots on target, but plenty of chances: Jackson had the best of them but failed to test Ortega.

45+1 minutes: No. De Bruyne sent a cross to the back post, but it went straight out of play.

We have completed two minutes of extra time.

Minute 45: Another foul from Caicedo, this time on Grealish by pulling his shirt. It's a booking for the midfielder and another free-kick for City before half-time.

44 minutes: Dear, that sums up half of what City have done so far. Foden's cross goes straight out of play.

Palmer then loses the ball but Fernandes recovers it on the edge of the penalty area as he dispossesses De Bruyne from it.
