Last season’s runners-up Chelsea face Crystal Palace in the other semi-final fixture with the two London rivals due to go head-to-head on April 17, with kick-off set for 4:30pm BST.

The FA have also announced travel advice for Manchester City and Liverpool supporters, with essential engineering works being conducted over the Bank Holiday weekend by Network Rail in what will limit travel by rail from the North West.

In a statement the FA have said that ‘the FA, Network Rail and Chiltern Railways strongly advise that Liverpool and Manchester City supporters affected should avoid travelling from the North West by train wherever possible and seek alternative travel arrangements including ‘a limited number of free return bus services’ and ‘limited pre-booked car parking’.

The Women’s FA Cup semi-finals will take place over the same weekend but are not held at neutral venues.
