MANCHESTER City will play either city rivals Manchester United or fellow Barclays Premier League giants Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals.

The draw, conducted at Wembley immediately after United’s 2-2 draw with Chelsea at Old Trafford yesterday, pitched the eventual winners of the replay against City.

Millwall and Blackburn also drew 0-0 at The Den earlier in the day and will replay on Wednesday, with the winner to face Wigan.

The semi-finals will be played at the national stadium over the weekend of April 13 and 14.

United looked like they were heading through when Javier Hernandez and Wayne Rooney gave United a 2-0 lead inside 11 minutes but well-taken second-half goals from Eden Hazard and Ramires earned Chelsea a replay.

City brushed off Barnsley 5-0 as Carlos Tevez shrugged off his latest off-field controversy to score a hat-trick and set up his side’s other two goals.

Wigan produced arguably the performance of quarter-final weekend to beat Everton 3-0 with goals from Maynor Figueroa, Callum McManaman and Jordi Gomez in less than four minutes in the first half.
