Holders Arsenal have been drawn to face Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-finals.
Sunderland will face either Tranmere or Millwall in the other semi-final, with ties to be played on Sunday 4 April.
The draw means that there may be a Nationwide team competing in Europe next season. If, as expected, Arsenal and Manchester United finish in the top four in the league, a UEFA Cup spot will definitely go to either Sunderland, Millwall or Tranmere.
Arsene Wenger’s men are looking for a record fourth consecutive FA Cup final appearance and a third consecutive FA Cup win.
Both teams are still on course for the treble of Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League. In fact, the semi-final tie carries echoes of the 1999 game between the two teams. United won that game after a replay and the victory provided a spiringboard for their treble.
