FA Cup: Semi-finals  draw – Blues v Spurs; Gunners v Citizens 

The draw for the FA Cup semi-final has been made and Chelsea will play Tottenham, while Arsenal clash with Manchester City.
There are three London teams in the FA Cup semi-finals for the first time since 2002 (Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham).
Despite the thrills and shocks served up by the likes of Lincoln, Sutton and Millwall, four of the Premier League’s current top five are left in the competition.
Chelsea and Spurs met at the same stage in 2012 when the Blues ran out 5-1 winners through goals from Didier Drogba, Juan Mata, Ramires, Frank Lampard and Florent Malouda.
Amazingly Arsenal and City have met just twice before at any stage in the competition, the most recent of which was a 2-1 fifth-round win for the Gunners in 1971.
The matches will be played over the weekend of April 22-23, with the final on Saturday, May 27.
