Crystal Palace: Matt Woosnam reacts to FA Cup semi-final details -Crystal Palace News

The Athletic’s Crystal Palace correspondent Matt Woosnam has been reacting to details regarding the club’s FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea next month.

The Lowdown: Palace’s road to Wembley

The Eagles booked their place in the last four of the competition with an impressive 4-0 win over Everton prior to the international break.

Who has been Palace's best permanent signing?









Patrick Vieira’s side have also defeated Millwall, Hartlepool United and Stoke City en route to Wembley, avoiding Liverpool and Manchester City in the semi-final draw.

Palace still have two Premier League fixtures to fulfil before thinking about the meeting with Thomas Tuchel’s side, with full details of the semi-final now confirmed, as per the Eagles’ official website.

The Latest: Semi-final details

Woosnam took to Twitter on Friday morning, relaying the date and kick-off information for supporters.

Palace will take on Chelsea at Wembley on Sunday 17 April at 16:30, with Woosnam labelling the kick-off time as ‘appalling’ for Easter Sunday.

The Verdict: Not ideal

It would make sense for the game to commence earlier due to travel on what will be a busy day, but that won’t be the case for Palace fans making they way across Londin.

Liverpool and Manchester City meet on Saturday 16 April in a 15:30 kick-off, with both clubs also unhappy about having to play the semi-final in the capital due to travel restrictions from the north-west.

Hopefully, no Palace fans wanting to go to the game will miss out, with season ticket holders set to get first choice when tickets go on sale.
