Chelsea settle on Sunday FA Cup semi date

Chelsea have decided to go ahead with their FA Cup semifinal against Tottenham for Sunday, April 15.

It will deny Chelsea extra recovery time if they defend a 1-0 first-leg lead and knock Benfica out next week.

The first leg of their Champions League semi-final would be played on Wednesday, April 18 and, although it is at Stamford Bridge, their opponents - be it AC Milan or Barcelona - will enjoy at least one extra day to recover from their weekend game.
