Blues will face Arsenal at 3pm, Sunday 23rd April
City will play Arsenal at Wembley Stadium at 3pm on Sunday 23rd April, the FA have today confirmed. The game will be broadcast live on BT Sport.
Pep Guardiola's side comfortably defeated Middlesbrough 2-0 at The Riverside Stadium to earn their place in the last four, whilst the Gunners romped home 5-0 against non-league Lincoln City.
The Blues will be looking to banish the midweek Champions League defeat against Monaco, and the FA Cup represents Guardiola's best chance of securing a trophy in his debut season in England.
Chelsea will face Tottenham Hotspur at 5.15pm on the Saturday, with the BBC screening the game live.
