FA Cup: Chelsea join Arsenal in semi-final

FA Cup: Chelsea join Arsenal in semi-final”

Manchester United last played Chelsea at the semi-final stage in 1996 when Andy Cole and David Beckham scored the goals in a 2-1 victory, Ruud Gullit, shortly to succeed Glenn Hoddle as player-manager, scored for Chelsea against a side that went on to complete the Double by beating Liverpool in the final by virtue of Eric Cantona's victor.

Arsenal, a 13-time champion, will play Manchester City, and 12-time victor Manchester United faces Chelsea. The final will also take place behind closed doors at Wembley stadium.

Elsewhere, it was another away win secured in the dying moments as Arsenal beat Sheffield United 2-1 at Brammal Lane.

Arsenal responded with an injury-time victor through Dani Ceballos to seal their return to Wembley and move two wins closer to lifting a first trophy under Arteta, who was appointed Unai Emery's successor in November. Ceballos pounced with a low shot, just four minutes after David McGoldrick had equalised from close range.

Arsenal progressed to the last four thanks to a late victor against Sheffield United on Sunday, with Dani Ceballos popping up with the decisive goal after Nicolas Pepe's first-half penalty was cancelled out by a David McGoldrick goal.

The draw for this year's FA Cup semi-final has been made, throwing up some very tasty ties indeed, including a repeat of the 2016 final.

In Sunday's only Premier League game, striker Danny Ings scored twice to reach 18 goals as Southampton won 3-1 at struggling Watford.

Southampton moved up one place to 13th and is a comfortable 13 points clear of the relegation zone.
