MANCHESTER UNITED WILL face Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley, with Arsenal set to face holders Manchester City for a spot in the decider.

The last-four draw keeps apart local-rival pairings of Arsenal and Chelsea, and United and City, meaning there could still be a London or Manchester derby fixed for the showpiece later this summer.

The ties will be played on 18 July and 19 July at the home of English football.

735 teams entered the FA Cup this season, and four of the remaining teams — United, Chelsea, Arsenal and City — have won 20 of the last 24 competitions between them.
