Chelsea will face Manchester City in the Semi-final of the FA Cup at Wembly Stadium on Sunday looking to advance in their defense of the domestic tournament title.
Good news for Chelsea and manager Rafa Benitez is that striker Demba Ba has recovered from an ankle injury he suffered against Sunderland during the club's last league match and will be available to face Manchester City on Sunday.
Ryan Bertrand, who missed the Europa League quarter-final second leg against Rubin Kazan because of illness, was back in training on Friday and could be available for Sunday's match.
Some other good news for Chelsea is the fact that striker Fernando Torres seems be on the scoring path again after netting three goals in the two matches against Rubin Kazan.
Chelsea is unbeaten in 29 FA Cup games, excluding penalty shootouts, which is the longest ever run without defeat by a single side in the competition. Frank Lampard could make his 600th appearance for Chelsea, while the club looks to break their goal scoring record of 142 set three seasons ago. The club has netted 125 goals so far this season.
For Roberto Mancini and Manchester City they will have to overcome the possible absence of Spanish playmaker David Silva who is doubtful to feature in Sunday's match.
Mancini will make the determination the morning of the match to see if Silva is fit to play after the Spaniard suffered an injury during his side's win over United.
Striker Sergio Aguero is also pushing to return to the starting line-up after making two substitute appearances since recovering from a knee injury.
Kick-off for the match is at 11:00 a.m. ET and can be watched online here.
