Watch the FA Cup semi-finals live on Showmax!

Football fans can catch all the FA Cup semi-final drama live on Showmax Premier League, including the mammoth clash between Manchester City and Chelsea at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, 20 April, at no additional cost.

Showmax brought the epic drama live to your mobile phone when Manchester United dumped Liverpool out of the FA Cup in a classic 4-3 win at Old Trafford and can confirm that yet another special sporting event will be available to football fans.

We will be bringing all the semi-final drama of the FA Cup live on Showmax Premier League, including the mammoth all-Premier League clash between Manchester City and Chelsea at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, 20 April.

FA Cup Semi-finals live on Showmax Premier League

The FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley Stadium will kick-off with the Cityzens taking on the Blues on Saturday, before Manchester United take on Championship team Coventry City the very next day, in a game that could very well spring a magic FA Cup shock surprise.

Showmax Premier League will show both epic FA Cup semi-final ties live, along with all the Premier League fixtures scheduled for the weekend, at no additional cost.

Manchester City are currently favourites to win the FA Cup final, with bookies’ odds at 4/6, while Manchester United are second favourites with odds at 13/5.

Pep Guardiola has the opportunity to win back-to-back FA Cups, having lifted the trophy last season after defeating neighbours Manchester United 2-1 in the final.

Should Guardiola’s men overcome Chelsea, and provided there are no shock surprises in the other semi-final, we could very well have a repeat of the 2023 FA Cup final.

The Cityzens will be desperate to win the FA Cup final, with their treble dreams dead after this week’s  Champions League exit to Real Madrid, while Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea will be aiming to win their only possible trophy in what has been a very underwhelming season. In the other semi-final, Manchester United will be looking to end their dreadful season with a silver lining. They will also be looking to redeem themselves having fallen at the final hurdle in last seasons FA Cup final.

United manager, Erik Ten Hag, will know that a trophy could save United’s season, and possibly his job too, so everything will be on the line in this epic David vs Goliath battle.

Coventry City, on the other hand, will relish the opportunity to cause a major upset in the FA Cup. Having played some outstanding football in the tournament so far, Coventry will fancy their chances against a lacklustre Manchester United.

The Championship team have the chance to win their second FA Cup, having last won the tournament in 1987, when they defeated Tottenham Hotspur 2-1. To this day, this is the only major trophy that Coventry has won, so this season provides a major opportunity for the minnows to create history.

Showmax’s live coverage of the FA Cup semi-finals will have no impact on its Premier League coverage, with all Premier League games available to stream live on the platform.

In the Premier League, there are several epic clashes to look forward to that weekend, including matches between Wolves and Arsenal, Aston Villa and Bournemouth, Crystal Palace and West Ham, as well as Fulham and Liverpool.
