Arsenal will again play Manchester City in the last four at the Wembley Stadium.

Ross Barkley provided Chelsea with the only goal that sent the Nigerian duo of Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho as well as their Leicester City teammates out of this season's FA Cup.

The FA Cup Newcastle United vs Manchester City fixture is scheduled at 11 pm IST.

Dani Ceballos' stoppage-time goal secured Arsenal's semi-final place in a 2-1 win at Sheffield United.

Manchester United last played Chelsea at the semi-final stage in 1996 when Andy Cole and David Beckham scored the goals in a 2-1 victory, Ruud Gullit, shortly to succeed Glenn Hoddle as player-manager, scored for Chelsea against a side that went on to complete the Double by beating Liverpool in the final by virtue of Eric Cantona's victor. Ceballos pounced with a low shot, just four minutes after David McGoldrick had equalised from close range. United defender John Egan's header early in the second half was also chalked off.

Another witness, who gave her name as Louisa, told Sky News she saw "people being treated with blood on the ground". On Friday, a man was stabbed to death in a hotel in Glasgo City Center, Scotland, killing three people.

The draw for the semi-final took place at half time of Newcastle's quarter final against Manchester City, Kevin de Bruyne giving the holders the lead from the spot in what has been a thoroughly dominant display, setting up the potential for a Manchester or London derby in the final on August 1st.

England striker Raheem Sterling added a second goal in the 68th minute, superbly striking home a low shot after fine approach work by Aymeric Laporte, Phil Foden and Benjamin Mendy.

The FA quarterfinals did not produce much in the way of surprises, as all of Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal all progressed through the semis.
