FA Cup Semi Final Draw as five sides learn their fate

The FA Cup Semi Final Draw was made at half time of Leicester’s tie against Manchester United as five sides learn their fate.

Manchester City, Chelsea and Southampton are all heading to Wembley Stadium after winning their last eight matches, with either the Foxes or Red Devils set to join them.

Four teams have booked their spots for the semi-finals and the latest to join them is Leicester City.

Southampton were the first Premier League side to progress, seeing off Championship outfit Bournemouth thanks to an inspired display by Nathan Redmond.

Premier League leaders Manchester City joined them in the hat with a 2-0 win over Everton at Goodison Park.

Late goals came from Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin de Bruyne doing the business to maintain hopes of completing the quadruple.

Last year’s finalists Chelsea are back in good form, with Thomas Tuchel’s side defeating Sheffield United who gave it as good as they got in their last eight clash.

Sheffield United interim manager Paul Heckingbottom: “It’s a sickener but there are a lot of pleasing things. We more than deserved extra time. We want to look forward and take the positives.”

Leicester City reached their first FA Cup semi-final for 39 years with a fully deserved win over Manchester United at the King Power Stadium.

The draw for the semi final took place before that match ends, being held during half time of the meeting in the East Midlands, at approximately 5:50pm.

@RasenRendanX: Well we can’t avoid city forever. Just gotta go out and win

@ReAnimated_LFC: If anyone can then its you lot!

@iamstanley__: Leicester vs Chelsea final 😊

@SamSmiths_: wonder if there’s a precedent for a team losing 9-0 early in a season to a team who they then beat in the FA Cup semi-final

@RahulSundar37: City v Chelsea will be fiesty

@TheFossePosse: Spare a though for Southampton fans, doomed to 9-0isms in the next round whatever happens

@Daddy_Nomso: Man City forgot to pay to get the easy draws ffs

@takelz2: As a chelsea fan I would like to say goodbye to the fa cup

@ryanjvisuals: does that make Leicester vs Man Utd the 9-0 derby?

@yifzzz_: it’s been a good run. all the best next season boys. @ChelseaFC

@BlaszczyGOATski: Poor Southampton 😂

@jordswbu: What on earth is the semi-final draw doing being done during halftime of a QF. Cup’s dying

@Dzulmhmt: At least Man City will face against difficult opponent 🙊

@MrBawlah: First time in ages that City isn’t getting the easy path!

@WeisongJi: Southampton be like : those teams won us 9-0 🥲

@dhegec: This must be some sick joke though both teams have beaten Southampton 9-0 recently 😂😭

@sammufc09: I’m actually shocked, City didn’t get the easiest team they could have gotten??

“I think we just needed go back to some of the stuff we were doing at the start of the season and realise some of the sort of positions in which we were going wrong, and some of the areas which we weren’t hurting teams as much as we know we can,” Nathan Redmond said.

“Today we had to take it serious because not so long ago we came here, we won and they ended up getting relegated so there’s a bit of that in there.

“They’ve been playing some good football in the Championship this year. They’re pushing for the play-offs and to get promoted again.

“It was never going to be an easy game but we knew that if we stuck to our principles and what we know, and also having that sort of expressive freedom to go and hurt teams, then we should have been fine.”

An unhappy Tuchel said: “It sounds excellent to say we’re through to the semi-finals. We had a good first half where we controlled everything.

“We lost control in the second half, we were clearly tired. After 14 consecutive matches I could feel we were tired and we made many little faults.

“We were lucky to keep the clean sheet in the second half but I think it’s the first time in the 14 games we have looked tired.”
