Former player and current television pundit Robbie Savage has had his say on who will reach the FA Cup final, and the former Wales international is going for a Tottenham Hotspur-Manchester City final, as reports The Mirror.

The FA Cup semi-finals take place at Wembley Stadium this weekend, with Spurs going up against Premier League leaders Chelsea, while City take on an Arsenal side who have been out of sorts by their own high standards this year.

Taking to his column with The Mirror, Savage believes that Pep Guardiola's City will narrowly squeak past Arsenal 2-1 to heap more pressure on Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, while Harry Kane will send Spurs to the final at Chelsea's expense.

Chelsea lead Spurs by just four points in the Premier League, and have endured a nervy few weeks recently following defeats to Crystal Palace and Manchester United, while Tottenham's incredible form has seen them open the title race up again.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have only won once in April - their recent 2-1 win over Middlesbrough - while City have lost just once this month, and that was to Antonio Conte's Chelsea side in a 2-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge. The two sides met recently, and the outcome was a 2-2 draw.

The furthest Savage got as a player in the FA Cup was the semi-final stage with Blackburn Rovers in 2005, where Rovers lost 3-0 to eventual winners Arsenal at the Millennium Stadium.
