David Silva is struggling to make Manchester City's FA Cup semifinal against Chelsea.

The Daily Mail says Silva will not be fit for Sunday's FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea and the Spain star may even miss next Wednesday's Barclays Premier League clash at home to Wigan.

Silva has been having intensive treatment on the hamstring injury he picked up in the win over Manchester United at Old Trafford on Monday.

City boss Roberto Mancini is publicly refusing to give up hope that the 27-year-old can make a recovery in time for Sunday's big game in the capital.
