Manchester City begin their 2023 FA Cup campaign at home to Chelsea this weekend. City head into the match having just beaten their next opponents in the league.

A single Riyad Rahrez goal was enough for City to claim all three points at Stamford Bridge earlier this week. Mahrez was assisted by substitute Jack Grealish.

Since returning to action after the World Cup, City have picked up seven points from three matches. This has kept them within reach of Premier League leaders Arsenal.

Opponents Chelsea are in poor form, having won just one of their last seven league matches. City hosted Chelsea in the EFL Cup earlier this season and Pep Guardiola’s side ran out 2-0 winners.

The match has been selected along with five others for live TV broadcast across the weekend. City v Chelsea and Oxford United v Arsenal will also be shown live on either ITV or BBC. Information on how you can tune in to watch the match is available below.
