FA Cup semi-final draw

Chelsea and Manchester City are set to go head to head in a mouthwatering game at Wembley following the draw for the FA Cup semi-finals.

Southampton were the first team to book their place in the last four, Nathan Redmond heavily involved as the Saints beat their south coast rivals Bournemouth with a 3-0 win on Saturday.

Later that evening they were joined by Manchester City, Pep Guardiola’s side netting twice in the last six minutes to edge past Everton to make it to their fourth semi-final in the last five years.

Chelsea came up against a spirited performance by Sheffield United, though ultimately ran out 2-0 winners at Stamford Bridge to maintain Thomas Tuchel’s unbeaten start to life at the club.

The draw for the semi-finals took place at half-time of the quarter-final between Leicester and Manchester United, which was finely poised at 1-1 at the time of writing.
