There will be plenty to admire over FA Cup semi-final weekend as Wembley welcomes the competition's final four – and the worldie WAGs of their star-studded squads will be at the top of the list.

Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Crystal Palace will all descend on the home of English football over the next two days, intent on sealing a spot in next month's FA Cup final. While there is sure to be plenty of eye-catching action to get excited over on the pitch, there will be some spectacular sights in the stands, too.

The quartet make up a formidable FA Cup final four – not just because they possess Premier League pedigree, but because their vast selection of stars will be supported by some of the game's most stunning WAGs. Daily Star Sport takes a look at some of the gorgeous girls who will be cheering on their fellas in this weekend's festival of football – otherwise known as the FA Cup semi-finals.

Sara Botello (Aymeric Laporte)

City's Aymeric Laporte will be supported from the sidelines by sizzling Spanish spouse Sara Botello. The French defender's stunning wife, 28, is regularly seen sharing saucy pics of herself to her 17,000 followers on Instagram.

The beauty is a professional dancer and has performed ballet and contemporary styles at various events in Bilbao. With that in mind, Laporte should be well accustomed to witnessing fancy footwork, which may come in handy as he's tasked with keeping the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane at bay on Saturday.

Taylor Ward (Riyad Mahrez)

Who is your favourite Wembley WAG? Let us know in the comments section

Daughter to Real Housewives of Cheshire stars Dawn and Ashley, Taylor Ward will no doubt be watching on come Saturday afternoon as partner Riyad Mahrez hopes to shine for City. The gorgeous model, 23, is a star in her own right having amassed a mammoth 1.7million followers on Instragram.

The blonde bombshell is often seen promoting beauty products and her extravagant holidays to Dubai and Ibiza on social media, when she isn't busy studying for a degree in fashion. Mahrez and Ward will be hoping a Wembley win will give them further reason to cheer having recently announced they are expecting their first child, a matter of months after they tied the knot in a secret ceremony.

Michele De Bruyne (Kevin De Bruyne)

When the camera pans to shots of a stricken Kevin De Bruyne in the Wembley stands win Saturday – in the wake of the midfielder having injured himself against Atletico Madrid earlier this week – keep an eye out for his worldie wife Michele. The pair have been together since 2014, but only after the Belgian baller slid into her DMs on Twitter.

“It started with a tweet”, De Bruyne revealed. “I only had a few thousand followers at the time, because I was still on loan at Werder Bremen. So I tweeted something about a match or whatever, and this pretty girl favourited it.” The City star is clearly as clinical off the pitch as he is on it.

Natalia Loewe (Alisson Becker)

Unsurprisingly, given Alisson is Liverpool's chief goalkeeper, the Brazilian's wife is quite the catch. The shot-stopper wed his stunning spouse Natalia back in 2015 and the pair have gone on to have three children since.

Natalia has amassed over 286,000 followers on Instagram and works as a Goodwill Ambassador for the World Health Organisation. Given Alisson's other half is also a doctor, it's little surprise she sets pulses racing.

Rebeca Tavares (Fabinho)

Another who will be rooting for the Reds at Wembley this weekend is Fabinho's wife Rebeca Tavares. The Brazilian belle has not only endeared herself to Liverpool's fervent followers with her saucy social media snaps, but also because she's quick to assert her football opinions.

Tavares is often on hand for commentary when the Reds are in action and isn't afraid to take aim at both opposition and officials. The 'Queen of the Kop' will be hoping to emerge victorious as winner of the Wembley WAGs this weekend.

Larissa Firmino (Roberto Firmino)

Roberto Firmino married Brazilian bombshell Larissa Pereira back in June of 2017 and the pair have since gone on to start up their own family on mini Firminos. The couple clearly have a cracking sense of humour as they posted a hilarious picture to announce they were expecting a third child back in September.

Larissa is regularly seen delighting her 540,000 followers on Instagram with raunchy pics of her curvy body. She is also another who is a success in her own right having founded fashion brand BeValen Store.

Belle Silva (Thiago Silva)

Chelsea's Thiago Silva is revered as a force on the field, so it's little wonder his wife Belle is also a formidable figure. The Brazilian beauty has established herself as a favourite with beloved Blues fans as she regularly takes to social media to defend her husband – not that he needs any help in that department.

The pair are childhood sweethearts and have been together since the early 2000s – before the Blues bankrolled their way to success. Thiago and Belle married in 2005 and have since gone on to have two boys together.

Izabel Kovacic (Mateo Kovacic)

With beautiful blonde curly locks, it's no wonder Mateo Kovacic's other half Izabel had been dubbed the 'Croatian Shakira'. The pair reportedly met as teenagers in church, back when the Chelsea star was an altar boy and Izabel was in the choir – so she can sing a bit too.

The 28-year-old goddess is the founder and owner of Lunilou – a company which produce a range of organic and eco-friendly baby products. The pair married in June 2017 at the very church in which they met. How sweet.

Aine May Kennedy (Conor Gallagher)

The bad news? Conor Gallagher won't be in action for Crystal Palace this weekend after parent club Chelsea rejected the Eagles request to allow him to play. The good news? He's sure to be in attendance when his two sides tussle giving fans the opportunity to salivate over his stunning sidekick Aine May Kennedy.

The Irish eye-candy is a professional dancer and model, and has amassed an Instagram following of over 32,000. When she's not posting pics of her and Conor wining and dining in Chelsea's finest restaurants, she's sharing saucy snaps with her many admirers.

Cecilie Porsdal (Joachim Andersen)


Joachim Andersen has been a stalwart in the heart of Crystal Palace's defence this season, and his ability to influence is one shared by gorgeous girlfriend Cecilie Porsdal. The Danish delight is often seen promoting different brands in shared snaps on her social media.

The pair are said to have began dating back in 2015 when they were teenagers and when Andersen was on the books of Dutch side Twente. Natural beauty Cecilie has followed her beau across the Netherlands, Italy and France, before they landed in London, where she appears to be loving life if her Instagram account is anything to go by.
