Chelsea vs. Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-finals takes place this afternoon.

The game, which takes place at Wembley Stadium, is scheduled to kick off at 16:00 BST and airs live in the United Kingdom on ITV/ITV HD.

Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez believes his side will learn from past mistakes as they bid to book their place in the FA Cup final.

City beat Chelsea 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium back in February, but Benitez insists his team have learnt from the experience.

"We know what we did wrong against them in the league and we'll make sure we don't make the same mistakes," said the Spaniard.

"They're a good team in a good position in the table, and did well against Manchester United the other day. We know it will be difficult but it's a semi-final in a massive competition.

"They're a good team, a strong squad. They have a manager with experience and they have confidence at the moment. We know we'll have to do our best if we want to progress."

Chelsea can still end the season with two trophies having progressed into the Europa League semi-finals in midweek.

"In terms of two semi-finals and still in the top three we're really pleased," Benitez added.

"It's a young squad with new players coming into the Premier League. We still need more experience, but that's getting better.

"It's still too early. We will see what happens at the end of the season, but top three, another semi-final. Not bad."
