Manchester City have confirmed their place in the 2023/24 FA Cup Final after beating Chelsea 1-0 at Wembley Stadium.

City were forced to play without Erling Haaland, who was ruled out with an injury as the teams were announced. Chelsea knocked at the door for the majority of the 90 minutes; however, it was Bernardo Silva's low drive from close range that settled the tie in the 84th minute.

Pep Guardiola's side will now have their shot at winning the eighth FA Cup in the club's 130-year history, one year after the last. Their opponents will be decided when Coventry City meet Manchester United tomorrow, with the eventual showdown for the coveted trophy scheduled for Saturday, May 25.

This won't be until after the Premier League campaign is done and dusted; therefore, focus still must shift back to the ongoing, highly pressurised title race with Arsenal and Liverpool. Both rivals are in action this weekend, so they will leave City with a game in hand to catch up at a later date.

Here is how the trio of clubs' final six fixtures of the Premier League season compare:

Man City next six fixtures

  • Thursday, April 25 - Brighton (A)

  • Sunday, April 28 - Nottingham Forest (A)

  • Saturday, May 4 - Wolverhampton Wanderers (H)

  • Saturday, May 11 - Fulham (A)

  • Tuesday, May 14 - Tottenham Hotspur (A)

  • Sunday, May 19 - West Ham United (H)

Arsenal next six fixtures

Like City, the Gunners were eliminated from the Champions League on Wednesday night, so now they only have the Premier League to look to if they are to win a major honour this season. Mikel Arteta's side sit second in the standings, trailing by two points; however, that may quickly change once City's latest match is complete as Arsenal kick-off at 7:30pm this evening.

  • Saturday, April 20 - Wolverhampton Wanderers (A)

  • Tuesday, April 23 - Chelsea (H)

  • Sunday, April 28 - Tottenham Hotspur (A)

  • Saturday, May 4 - Bournemouth (H)

  • Sunday, May 12 - Manchester United (A)

  • Sunday, May 19 - Everton (H)

Liverpool next six fixtures

The Reds were also dumped out of European competition this week as they failed to overcome a 3-0 first-leg deficit against Italians Atalanta in the Europa League quarter-finals, making this an uncomplicated three-horse race for the title. They have already won the Carabao Cup this year; however, they remain locked on points with Arsenal and in the fight to make manager Jurgen Klopp's send-off a particularly special one.

  • Sunday, April 21 - Fulham (A)

  • Wednesday, April 24 - Everton (A)

  • Saturday, April 27 - West Ham United (A)

  • Sunday, May 5 - Tottenham Hotspur (H)

  • Monday, May 13 - Aston Villa (A)

  • Sunday, May 19 - Wolverhampton Wanderers (H)
