Draw Details

(Details below are copied from the FA's official website ... so 'we' is the FA ... and only ball nos. are edited to reflect the two games already played)

The draw for the Emirates FA Cup Semi Finals is to be held on Sunday Evening

The last draw of the 2020-21 Emirates FA Cup campaign will be held on Sunday 21 March, following a weekend of quarter-final action.

Fans will be able to see the semi-final draw made at half time of the tie between Leicester City and Manchester United, which is being screened live on BBC One and the BBC iPlayer in the UK.

Our quarter-final action kicks-off on Saturday with a south coast derby between AFC Bournemouth and Southampton, before Everton host Manchester City later in the day. Both of those ties will be shown live on BT Sport 1 in the UK.

And on Sunday, we'll start the day with Sheffield United's trip to play Chelsea at Stamford Bridge before the final tie at the King Power Stadium begins at 5pm GMT.

Semi Final Draw Numbers


1 - Everton or Manchester City
2 - AFC Bournemouth or Southampton
3 - Leicester City or Manchester United
4 - Chelsea or Sheffield United




Who do we want ...

None of that we want Manchester United in the Semi Final again so we can avenge the league defeat or we'll do them again nonsense ... that old saying asking for "lowest ranked team at home" is very much what is a needed here. OK, there isn't a Home or Away at this stage anymore as both Semi Finals will be at the Wembley Stadium ... but still the lowest ranked team please - the one poorest in form - distracted elsewhere (preferably in relegation battle or maybe in a tight top four race etc. but thoroughly distracted) is what is needed.


Why?

This is why ...


03/04 - Leicester City (A)

06/04 - Borussia Dortmund - CL QF (H)
10/04 - Leeds United (H)
14/04 - Borussia Dortmund - CL QF (A)

17/04 - FA Cup Semi Final (Wembley)
21/04 - Aston Villa (A) - Most likely date
25/04 - Spurs - Carabao Cup Final (Wembley)

28/04 - Bayern Munich or PSG - CL SF (A) - Should we progress in CL


Just look where this game comes in ... and because of that Semi Final, that Aston Villa (A) game that weekend gets postponed - to possibly a couple of days later that same mid-week (as that is the only possible slot for that) ... so yes, lowest ranked easiest possible draw please ... none of this oh we want United in Semi Final again ... sorry, but let Chelsea (or preferably Leicester itself) deal with them this time and I'd take Southampton (or Sheffield United) please.
