Chelsea will face Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-finals after defeating Leicester City in the last eight of the competition on Sunday. 

The Blues went ahead at Stamford Bridge through Marc Cucurella, before Cole Palmer doubled their advantage.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side looked to be cruising into the last four, before Axel Disasi’s pass back to goalkeeper Robert Sanchez went straight past the Spaniard and into his own net.

Shortly after, Stephy Mavididi’s curled effort drew the Foxes level and sparked wild celebrations in the away end at Stamford Bridge.

Just as the Championship side looked to be getting on top, defender Callum Doyle was sent off for tripping Nicolas Jackson as he ran through on goal, and Carney Chukwuemeka then put the hosts back in front.

Noni Madueke’s stunning long range strike then cemented Chelsea’s place in the semis, and they were later drawn against the Citizens.

Gallagher faces an uncertain future at Stamford Bridge

In the meantime, it appears that Chelsea are expecting clubs to make low offers for one of their midfielders this summer.

As per Football Insider, the West London side are expecting to field ‘cheeky’ offers for Conor Gallagher during the upcoming summer transfer window.

Gallagher, 23, was heavily linked with a move away from Chelsea both last summer and in January, but he ultimately stayed put at his boyhood club.

Having progressed through the Blues’ youth setup and spent time on loan at several different clubs, the central midfielder broke into the first team at Stamford Bridge at the start of last season.

In total he has made 83 appearances for the club across all competitions, and he has also captained the side on several occasions.

Despite his importance to Pochettino’s side, the report claims that Chelsea are likely to sell Gallagher this summer in a bid to ensure they adhere to profit and sustainability restrictions.

It is also claimed that clubs both in England and across Europe believe that Gallagher may be available at a bargain price this summer.
