Defending champions Manchester City are still in the mix to record back-to-back FA Cup successes after beating Newcastle 2-0 at St James’ Park.

But they will face a tricky test in the shape of Arsenal who have made it through to the final four – chasing their fourth FA Cup trophy in seven years – after edging beyond Sheffield United in a tight encounter at Bramall Lane.

In the other tie, Manchester United’s young guns will be desperate to rack up their first trophy as a next-generation unit under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s leadership.

They face Chelsea at Wembley with Frank Lampard hoping for a glorious end to his first season in charge of his beloved Blues.

Lampard’s men were not expected to challenge for honours in 2019/20 given the club’s transfer embargo, Eden Hazard’s departure and general turmoil, but they remain in the hunt for a Champions League place and a shot at the FA Cup.

The magic of the cup will endure lockdown, but which game are you most looking forward to before the competition finally draws to a close?
