Match Facts

  1. Manchester City and Liverpool have met twice before at Wembley stadium, with both games ending in a 1-1 draw before going to penalties. The Citizens eventually emerged victorious on both occasions in 2016 (League Cup final) and 2019 (Community Shield).
  2. This is the first FA Cup meeting between Man City and Liverpool since Gérard Houllier’s Reds ran out 1-0 victors away from home over Kevin Keegan’s men in 2003, with Danny Murphy netting the winner. Indeed, Liverpool’s only two defeats to Man City in the competition came in replays, winning three of the other five games (D2).
  3. This is the first FA Cup meeting between teams in the top-two of the Premier League on the day of the game since the 2016-17 semi-final between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, a 4-2 victory for the Blues. The only other occasion the semi-final of the FA Cup was contested by the Premier League’s top-two teams was in 1998-99, won 2-1 by Manchester United against Arsenal after a replay.
  4. Following their Premier League fixture on April 10th, Liverpool and Manchester City will meet twice in the space of a week for the first time since April 2018, when both legs of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final came six days apart. The sides last contested two separate competitions in such a short amount of time during Jürgen Klopp’s first season at the club in 2015-16, losing the League Cup final three days before a 3-0 Premier League win over Manuel Pellegrini’s men.
  5. Manchester City are appearing in their fifth FA Cup semi-final in the last six years – only missing out in 2017-18 – and all coming under Pep Guardiola. They have however lost three of the previous four games (W1) after what was an eight-match winning streak at this stage between 1933 and 2013.
  6. Liverpool have progressed from eight of their last 10 FA Cup semi-final ties, only failing to do so in this run in 1989-90 (v Crystal Palace) and in their most recent appearance at this stage in 2014-15 under Brendan Rodgers (v Aston Villa).
  7. When used as a neutral venue, Liverpool haven’t won any of their last six games at Wembley (D4 L2), though did beat Chelsea on penalties in the League Cup final in February. Having won more matches at the old venue than any other side (15), Liverpool have only won one of their eight encounters at the new site (2-1 v Everton in 2012).
  8. Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez has scored four goals in three FA Cup games this season, double that of in his 20 appearances beforehand (2). He’s scored in round four, round five and the quarter-final this season – the last Premier League player to score in four consecutive rounds in the same campaign was Romelu Lukaku for Manchester United in 2017-18.
  9. Throughout their managerial careers, neither Man City’s Pep Guardiola nor Liverpool’s Jürgen Klopp have lost more often against any other manager than they have against one another. In domestic cup competition, they have one win apiece against each other, with Guardiola’s Bayern Munich beating Klopp’s Borussia Dortmund 2-0 in the 2014 DFB-Pokal final, and Klopp returning the favour in the 2014-15 semi-final (2-0 on penalties after a 1-1 draw).
  10. Only four of the last 34 Wembley goals scored by either Liverpool or Manchester City have come via English players, with Raheem Sterling responsible for each, all since moving to Manchester. The last Englishman to net for the Reds at this venue was Andy Carroll in May 2012, with Joleon Lescott the most recent before Sterling to do so for the Citizens (August 2011).
