FA Cup semi-final draw: All you need to know

Published

on

Manchester City will be the only big club in the pot for the FA Cup semi-final on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola’s men fought back from two goals down to beat Swansea City 3-2 on Saturday.

However, their city rivals, Manchester United were shocked 2-1 by Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Indeed, the semi-final draw will have a far less familiar feel to it from recent seasons, with at least one from Wolves, Brighton, Millwall and Watford guaranteed a place in the Wembley final in May.

The draw for the last four will take place immediately following Brighton’s quarter-final tie against Millwall.

It will be aired live and exclusively on BBC 1.

The games will take place over the weekend of April 6.

Watford produced a stunning comeback, to defeat Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-2 on Sunday, to book their place in this year’s FA Cup final.

Matt Doherty headed Nuno Espirito Santo’s team in front in the half, before Raul Jimenez doubled their lead after the break.

Gerard Deulofeu and Troy Deeney levelled for Watford late on, to take the game into extra time.

Deulofeu stuck again, to send his side into the final, where they will face Manchester City.

City qualified on Saturday, following a 1-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion.

Jesus early goal sends Man City into final

Gabriel Jesus’ early-headed goal was enough for quadruple-chasing Manchester City to beat Brighton & Hove Albion 1-0 on Saturday and reach the FA Cup final.

Back at the scene of their League Cup triumph over Chelsea, Pep Guardiola’s side were not at their regular best against a Brighton side with their minds still on top-flight survival.

It took City three minutes to go ahead at a less-than-full Wembley, with Jesus diving full length to connect with Kevin De Bruyne’s superb whipped cross.

Whatever game-plan Brighton boss, Chris Hughton, had devised to stop a relentless City side was presumably now in tatters, but the expected onslaught did not materialise.

City had a let-off when Kyle Walker was perhaps fortunate not to get a red card in the first half, following a clash with Alireza Jahanbakhsh and they never looked totally secure as Brighton caused problems.

There were not too many major alarms, however, as City claimed their 21st win from their last 23 matches in all competitions.

They will play the winners of Watford and Wolverhampton Wanderers who meet in the second semi-final on Sunday.

City lost the Premier League top spot to Liverpool on Friday, although they are only two points adrift with a game in hand. They face Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Arsenal are looking for a win at Everton to strengthen their top four credentials

But the Gunners are far from home and dry as they must play no fewer than five of their last games away from home and currently have a wretched record on the road.

Phil Jagielka’s early goal, it put one in mind of the final years of Arsene Wenger’s reign.

Everton proceeded to a third successive victory and clean sheet, issuing a setback to Arsenal’s top-four hopes.

The Gunners end the weekend in fourth place, but they’ve won just once away from home in the league since November and this lifeless performance will have to worry manager Unai Emery.
