It’s FA Cup semi-final draw day with Manchester United taking on Fulham as they seek to book another day out at Wembley. The Carabao Cup winners must defeat their Premier League rivals for the second time this season to join the other three teams in the hat.
Manchester City confirmed their spot in the semi-finals for the fifth successive season with a 6-0 battering of Championship leaders Burnley yesterday. Vincent Kompany endured a grim return to the Etihad with Erling Haaland taking his tally for the season to 42 goals with a hat-trick.
And it was City loanee Tommy Doyle who helped Sheffield United into the semis earlier today. He scored a 91st-minute effort to see off Championship rivals Blackburn in a 3-2 thriller at Bramall Lane. That came after Oli McBurnie had brought the Blades level just 10 minutes earlier.
Brighton are taking on Grimsby in the second quarter-final of the day, looking to repeat the feat of reaching the final four in 2018-19 before they lost to Man City. Once that match finishes, the draw will then be conducted before United take on Fulham at Old Trafford at 4.30pm. Express Sport provides live updates below…
