Manchester City and Manchester United supporters will be keeping a close eye on the draw for the FA Cup semi-finals this afternoon.

City booked their place at Wembley for the first time this season after a comprehensive victory over Burnley in the quarter-finals on Saturday. An Erling Haaland hat-trick got the Blues on their way before Julian Alvarez bagged a brace.

Cole Palmer also grabbed a goal to ensure that Pep Guardiola's men were the first team in the hat for the semi-final draw. United will also be in the draw later today but they still have work to do to secure their place in the last-four.

Erik ten Hag's team will not have played their quarter-final tie before the draw takes place. United host Fulham at 4:30pm but their potential opponents in the next round will have already been decided.

The draw will take place after Brighton and Grimsby Town's tie which kicks off at 2:15pm. Should the Reds progress, this will be their second trip to Wembley this season following their Carabao Cup triumph last month.
