FA Cup semi-final draw: Man Utd vs Chelsea, Arsenal vs Man City

Chelsea will meet Manchester United in one of the semifinals of the English FA Cup, while Manchester City will battle with Arsenal in the other match scheduled for July 18. 

Chelsea moved into the FA Cup semi-finals yesterday courtesy of Ross Barkley’s goal at Leicester, while Arsenal joined their London rivals in the last four after a dramatic 2-1 victory against Sheffield United yesterday.

Manchester City also qualified for the semifinals by beating Newcastle at St. James Park through goals by De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling.

Looking to win the first trophy of Frank Lampard’s reign, Chelsea recovered from a woeful start at the King Power Stadium.

The Blues could easily have been behind before the break, but Lampard rang the changes at half-time and Barkley — one of the players introduced — grabbed the winner with a cool finish.

At Bramall Lane, Dani Ceballos fired Arsenal into last four. Mikel Arteta’s side rode their luck after surviving a second-half barrage from the Blades, but Nicolas Pepe put Arsenal ahead with a first-half penalty after Chris Basham fouled Alexandre Lacazette.

David McGoldrick equalised with three minutes left, but on-loan Real Madrid midfielder Ceballos settled it in the final moments.
