FA Cup semi-final draw: Manchester City to face Sheffield United, Brighton play Manchester United or Fulham


Championship side Sheffield United will face Manchester City in the semi-finals of the FA Cup, while Brighton & Hove Albion await the winner of Manchester United and Fulham.

The Blades have overcome Millwall, Wrexham after a replay, Tottenham and Blackburn on their way to a last-four showdown with the Premier League champions.

Sheffield United are four-time winners of the tournament but they last won it in 1925. Paul Heckingbottom’s side sit second in the Championship – some 13 points behind Burnley, whom Manchester City put six past on Saturday night to secure their berth in the final four.

On the other side of the draw, Brighton, who ended Grimsby Town’s fairytale run courtesy of a 5-0 win at the Amex on Sunday, await the winner of Manchester United and Fulham.
Manchester United face Fulham at Old Trafford from 16:30 GMT.

Should Fulham get the better of United, it would ensure that at least one potential first-time winner would be in the final.

Fulham lost their only FA Cup final to West Ham in 1975, while Brighton suffered heartbreak in the 1983 final. Having held favourites Manchester United to a 2-2 draw, they would lose the replay 4-0.

The semi-finals will be contested at Wembley on the weekend of April 22 and 23.
