Manchester City Struggling To Sell Allocation For FA Cup Semi-Final Against Arsenal
The FA Cup returns this week with two final spots up for grabs.
On Saturday, Chelsea face Spurs. The winners of that all-London tie will play Manchester City or Arsenal who slug it out on Sunday.
Wembley Stadium is set to host the two semi-finals but according to Sportsmail, Sunday's game is in danger of not being a sell-out.

The report claims City are struggling to sell their allocation with fans unhappy about the scheduling of the game.
The Blue side of Manchester were given around 33,000 tickets for the Wembley semi-final, though with the match a few days away, there's still tickets up for grabs.
A supposed 1,500-2,000 tickets remain unsold with tickets priced between £30 and £60.
Cue the jokes...
Coventry, who've just been relegated to League Two, took 45,000 fans to Wembley last month. Meanwhile City are struggling to sell 33,000 :joy:- Sibs (@SibsMUFC) April 19, 2017
Though in their defence, Sunday is going to be a hectic day with the London marathon to take place.
The prospect of traveling down to the capital with the marathon on has prompted fears of travel delays.
And surely with City being the only Northern side in the last four, they should've played on the Saturday?!
To be honest, why the fuck is Wembley even staging the semi's?! Bring back Villa Park and Old Trafford!
