It has been confirmed that Manchester United FA Cup semi-finals against Tottenham Hotspur will take place at Wembley Stadium on Saturday 21 April at 17:15 BST.

It is the Reds' reward for a hard-earned 2-0 home win over Brighton & Hove Albion, secured by headers in either half from Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic. Spurs, meanwhile, reached the last four with a comfortable 3-0 victory at Swansea City.

Wembley is, of course, Spurs’ 'home' ground this season and United lost the league encounter there 2-0 in January. However, Jose Mourinho’s men won the reverse fixture 1-0 earlier in the season with a late goal from Anthony Martial.

The Premier League rivals have met 15 times in the FA Cup previously, with the Reds winning five, drawing five and losing five. Our last meeting in the competition came in the fourth round in January 2009, when quickfire goals from Paul Scholes and Dimitar Berbatov gave United a come-from-behind 2-1 home win.

The other semi-final pits Chelsea, who beat Leicester City 2-1 after extra-time on Sunday, against Southampton, who overcame Wigan Athletic 2-0.
