Both sides booked their place in the UEFA Champions League Semi Final in mid week as Tuchel's boys overcame the Portuguese side of Porto on a 2-1 aggregate while Pep Guardiola's men defeated the German side of Borussia Dortmund on a 4-2 aggregate.
Tuchel will be looking forward in qualifying for his first final as a Chelsea manager if he is able to defeat Manchester City.
The German Manager, who replaced Frank Lampard has been impressive so far having won games with a 66.67% win since he took over Chelsea.
However, Thomas Tuchel should be able to use this perfect lineup if he wants to knock out Manchester City in the FA Cup Semi Final:
GK: Edouard Mendy
The senagalese shot stopper has been impressive so far since he signed for the London club and Tuchel is expected to stick with him ahead of second choice goal keeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga.
CB: Azpilicueta, Silva, Rudiger
Azpilicueta, Silva and Rudiger were impressive against Porto during their second leg in the UEFA Champions League. They are expected to play against Manchester City.
LWB: Ben Chilwell
Having started two or more games ahead of Marcos Alonso, Ben Chilwell has been impressive every since his solo goal against Porto in the First leg campaign.
CM: Kante, Kovacic
With Jorginho playing more games recently, he is expected to be rested and we should be able to see the combination of Kante and Kovacic in the midfield.
RWB: Recce James
He is also expected to start ahead of Hudson Odoi at the right wing back.
LWF: Christian Pulisic
Ever since the American international came back from injury, he has been one of Thomas Tuchel best player. He is expected to start ahead of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner at the left side.
RWF: Mason Mount
CF: Oliver Giroud
Having been rested in some games he is expected to start and with his experience, he should be able to win the match for Chelsea.
What do you think about this Line Up?
Do you think Tuchel's side can defeat Manchester City on Saturday????
