Holders Manchester City will face Chelsea in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

Manchester United’s reward for beating rivals Liverpool in a classic quarter-final is a last-four tie with Coventry City.

The semi-final draw leaves open the possibility of a repeat of last year’s Manchester derby final where City came out winners on the way to the treble.

United emerged the victors from a topsy turvy-tie against Liverpool, going through 4-3 after extra-time thanks to Amad’s 121st minute-winner at Old Trafford.

Championship side Coventry produced the shock of the round a day earlier, coming back from 2-1 down to Premier League Wolverhampton Wanderers in stoppage time to win 3-2 at Molineux.

Manchester City kept the defence of the 2023 crown alive with a 2-0 win over Newcastle United on Saturday evening thanks to two Bernardo Silva goals.

On Sunday, Chelsea survived a rollercoaster game with Championship promotion-chasers Leicester City before eventually advancing 4-2 after two late goals at Stamford Bridge from substitutes Carney Chukwuekmeka and Noni Madueke.

The semi-finals will be played on the weekend of April 20 and 21.
