Semi-finals set to be played at Wembley Stadium on July 18 and 19 behind closed doors; Final on August 1

Manchester United have been drawn to face Chelsea in the semi-finals of the FA Cup, with Arsenal playing holders Manchester City.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United side play Frank Lampard’s Chelsea in a repeat of the 2018 final, which was won by the Blues.

Harry Maguire struck an extra-time winner as United saw off 10-man Norwich in the first quarter-final on Saturday, while Chelsea beat Leicester 1-0 on Sunday thanks to Ross Barkley’s second-half strike.

Manchester City beat Newcastle 2-0 in the final quarter-final tie of the weekend, thanks to goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling, to set up a last-four meeting against record 13-time winners Arsenal.

An injury-time strike from Dani Ceballos saw Arsenal squeeze past Sheffield United 2-1 in their last-eight clash at Bramall Lane on Sunday.

Both semi-finals on the weekend of July 18/19 and the final on August 1 are scheduled to be held at Wembley Stadium behind closed doors.

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training

Published

on

Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
