Chelsea's reward for beating Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-finals is a tie against Tottenham at Wembley in the last four.

It was the Frenchman's second goal against the Old Trafford club this season, and came after Ander Herrera was sent off for two bookable offences.

Tottenham beat Millwall 6-0 in their quarter-final but are likely to be without star striker Harry Kane, who injured his ankle during the clash.

Arsenal, who hammered Lincoln 5-0, and are chasing their only realistic piece of silverware, will face Manchester City, who are in improved form under Pep Guardiola.

Chelsea and Spurs met at the same stage in 2012 when the Blues ran out 5-1 winners through goals from Didier Drogba, Juan Mata, Ramires, Frank Lampard and Florent Malouda.

Amazingly Arsenal and City have met just twice before at any stage in the competition, the most recent of which was a 2-1 fifth-round win for the Gunners in 1971.

The matches will be played over the weekend of April 22-23, with the final on Saturday, May 27.
