  • The FA Cup semis will be played at Wembley on the weekend of 18 and 19 July.

Manchester United will face Chelsea and Arsenal will play holders Manchester City or Newcastle in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

It is a stellar draw, featuring the Cup’s three most successful sides, with Arsenal the record 13-time winners.

Both ties will be played at Wembley on the weekend of 18 and 19 July.

The final is scheduled for Saturday, 1 August at the same venue.

The draw was made at half-time of the game between City and Newcastle, which Pep Guardiola’s side led 1-0 thanks to a Kevin de Bruyne penalty.
