Fixtures

Sunday 23rd April 2017 - FA CUP - SEMI-FINAL
Arsenal v Manchester City 15:00

Chelsea and Tottenham's battle for the Premier League title is put on hold when the top-two meet in the first semi-final at Wembley on Saturday evening when the double bid for one of these London sides will officially end.

With the Blues, despite an indifferent run of late, still holding a four point advantage over Spurs they'll be favourites to win the title so the FA Cup could be Mauricio Pochettino's sides' best chance of silverware this term?

Talking about best chance of silverware… in fact, 'only chance', this applies to both Arsenal and Manchester City when they meet on Sunday - then again as things stand it could be the Gunners' ONLY route into European football at all next season in fact? The Champions League is looking unlikely and a Europa League spot is far from certainly, not that this will be the North London clubs' aim.

An up and down debut season in English football for Pep Guardiola could still end with the Spaniard securing his customary trophy (usually more) if he can take his Man City team into next month's cup final.

It goes without saying the expectation; most definitely the hope at least, will be for a positive result. But will this happen? We'll find out soon enough.

Ahead of the game we're looking for your views on what way you think it will go, which requires you to vote in the latest poll in one of the options you have been given.

However don't just look also have a say. We don't just want your vote, which you can do to the right, we also want some thoughts and views ahead of the game as well so share these below.
