Manchester City are looking forward to a blockbuster clash with Liverpool while Chelsea will face Crystal Palace in the FA Cup semi-finals next month.

The Reds sealed their place after Sunday's draw with a narrow victory over Nottingham Forest to book their place in the last four.

With both the Merseysiders and City still in the hunt for the Premier League and Champions League titles as well as the FA Cup, a hugely competitive tie can be expected in April at Wembley.

When and where will the FA Cup semi-finals be played?

All four teams will play their single-leg encounters over the weekend of April 16/17, in just under a month.

Both games will be played over back-to-back days in a blockbuster double-header at Wembley Stadium, where all last-four ties have been played since 2008, after several years of dual neutral venues as hosts.

For Liverpool and Chelsea it marks the second visit in the space of three months, after both faced off in the Carabao Cup final in February under the iconic arch.

When is the FA Cup final?

The two winners of the semi-finals will both return to Wembley Stadium four weeks later for the showpiece encounter on May 14.

The match comes one week before the end of the Premier League season - and two weeks before the Champions League final, in which several of the FA Cup's remaining clubs could also be competing.
