Manchester City will attempt to halt Manchester United's march towards an unprecedented second treble on Saturday when the bitter local rivals collide at Wembley in the FA Cup semifinals.

A mouth-watering encounter between the aristocrats of the Premier League and their nouveau riche neighbours will see City fighting to keep alive their last chance of winning this season. But City's preparations could hardly have been worse -- a one-sided defeat at Liverpool on Monday, which also saw talismanic striker Carlos Tevez pick up an injury that rules him out of Saturday's game.http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/HTEditImages/Images/16_04_pg20b.jpg

United, meanwhile, will be without the suspended Wayne Rooney, who has been in scintillating form in recent weeks as the club have advanced to the Champions League semis and taken a grip on the title race.
