FA Cup: Semi-Finals fixtures, date confirmed, clubs learn their opponents

FA Cup semi-final Arsenal to face Man City again

Manchester City secured their place in the the semi-finals with a 2-0 victory against Newcastle at St James' Park, with Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling on target.

At the time of publishing, City were goalless away to Newcastle, who last won the FA Cup in 1955.

The semi-finals will be played at Wembley and will take place across the weekend of July 18-19.

Manchester United came away victorious over Norwich at the Carrow Road in their FA Cup tie.

It was Sheffield United's first goal since football resumed in England.

Odion Ighalo had given United the lead before Todd Cantwell levelled to send the game into extra-time but Harry Maguire scored in the 118th minute to send Man Utd into the semi-finals where they'll now meet Chelsea in the last four.


City, who beat Watford 6-0 in last year's final, were kept apart from arch-rivals Manchester United, who have been drawn to play Chelsea.

Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley turned in a cross from Willian midway through the second half in a 1-0 win at lacklustre Leicester City on Sunday (Monday NZ time).

That game was taking place after Arsenal knocked out Sheffield United, with Dani Ceballos scoring the victor in the 91st minute.

At Bramall Lane, forward Nicolas Pepe's penalty put Arsenal ahead midway through the first half, after United midfielder John Lundstram had an early header ruled out for offside.

The FA Cup final will be live from Wembley on BBC One on Saturday, 1 August.
