FA Cup semi-final draw: Arsenal to play Wigan at Wembley, Hull paired with Sheffield United
Gunners to take on last year's winners
Arsenal will face Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley. The other semi sees Hull City against Sheffield United.
The Gunners will visit the 'new' Wembley Stadium for the third time, having lost their two previous visits to the stadium since it re-opened in 2007. They last played there in 2011, losing the League Cup final 2-1 to Birmingham City, and before that they also went down 2-1 to eventual winners Chelsea in the 2009 FA Cup semi-final.
The last piece of silverware that Arsene Wenger's side won was the FA Cup back in 2005, when they defeated Manchester United on penalties. Wigan, meanwhile, pulled off the shock of this year's competition when they beat Manchester City 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
Sheffield United, the first third-tier team to reach the FA Cup semis since Wycombe Wanderers in 2001, take on top-flight Hull City, who visit Wembley for the first time in six years, since they beat Bristol City 1-0 in the play-off final to reach the Premier League.
Hull’s only previous appearance in an FA Cup semi-final came in 1930 – when they lost 1-0 to Herbert Chapman’s eventual winners Arsenal in a Villa Park replay after a 2-2 draw at Elland Road.
Ties will be played on the weekend of 12/13 April
