FA Cup semifinal draw: Manchester City face Liverpool

Manchester City have been drawn to face Liverpool in the FA Cup semifinals, while Chelsea will take on Crystal Palace.

The ties will be played on the weekend of April 16 and 17 at Wembley Stadium.

City were originally drawn to face the winner of Nottingham Forest and Liverpool, with Jurgen Klopp's side edging to a 1-0 victory thanks to a late strike from Diogo Jota.

The FA Cup encounter between City and Liverpool will mean two games in two weekends for the rivals with the sides due to meet in the Premier League on April 10.

Klopp's side, who lifted the Carabao Cup last month, remain in the FA Cup, Champions League and the Premier League title race giving them the opportunity of an unprecedented clean sweep of silverware.

Eight-time FA Cup winners Chelsea were the first team to make it to Wembley, beating Middlesbrough 2-0 on Saturday thanks to goals from Romelu Lukaku and Hakim Ziyech.

On Sunday, Crystal Palace beat Everton 4-0 to book their spot, while City overcame Southampton to win 4-1.
