FA Cup draw confirmed for Arsenal vs Man City and Man Utd vs Chelsea

Manchester United will play Chelsea, Arsenal will play again Manchester City in the last four of the FA Cup, at the Wembley Stadium.

The draw for the last four was made during half-time of City’s clash with Newcastle at St James’ Park on Sunday with the visitors 1-0 up thanks to Kevin De Bruyne’s goal from the penalty spot.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men beat Norwich after extra time with a late goal for Harry Maguire to set up a match against Blues. 

The triumph extended United’s unbeaten run in all competitions to 14 matches showing the good signs for Norwegian manager and United's future. 

Chelsea won Leicester by minimal 1-0 victory on Sunday. Ross Barkley came off the bench to secure a win over Brandan Rodgers' Leicester City.

Leicester couldn't live with Blues once the substitutes were made - The Foxes are in need of a transformation themselves while Frank Lampard continues to confirm his talent for leading the team on this level.

Arsenal had to confirm their ticket also by a late goal as Spaniard Dani Ceballos scored in the stoppage time to deny extra-time and 120 minutes.

Their next rivals Manchester City had not much trouble on away against Newcastle as Pep Guardiola's rotated eleven showed a decent performance with another clean sheet.

This will be also the clash between teacher and student.  Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta began his career at Barcelona when Guardiola was captain of the Catalan club, and the pair are good friends for a longer period. 

The much-awaited showdowns will be played at Wembley on July 18-19.  A final game will take place on Saturday, August 1.
