The win means Arsenal have now qualified for the FA Cup semi-final for the 30th time, equaling the feat first achieved by Manchester United when they beat Norwich City 2-1 on Saturday.

The two most successful teams in the FA Cup have avoided each other in the semifinals after Sunday's draw.

Harry Maguire scored a late victor for the Red Devils against the Canaries, while Dani Ceballos did the same for Arsenal to sink Sheffield United.

Both ties will be played at Wembley on the weekend of 18 and 19 July.

The draw means Chelsea and Manchester United are meeting for the fourth successive season in the competition.
