After Chelsea’s tense 1-0 win quarter-final against 10-man Manchester United, the draw for the semi-finals of the FA Cup was made, and with four huge clubs still left in the competition, there was no chance of a dud fixture.

Runaway league leaders were rewarded for that Stamford Bridge win against the Red Devils with a tasty all-London clash with Tottenham, with the two sides enjoying one win a-piece in their league clashes this season.

The second semi-final sees Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal take on Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in what should be an entertaining encounter at Wembley.

In their only meeting this season so far, the Citizens came from a goal down to beat the Gunners 2-1 at the Etihad.

What a cracking pair of games!

Antonio Conte now has the chance to move one step closer to the double in his first season in England. Or will Wenger bow out as Arsenal boss with FA Cup glory for the third time in four seasons?

The matches will take place on the weekend of 22 and 23 April.
