FA Cup semi-final draw
The FA Cup semi-final has been set and the two matches are between Manchester City and Brighton and the other one is Watford and Wolves. Manchester City are favourites to win the competition and could be their second trophy of a potential quadruple. City did struggle a little in the last round when they faced Swansea and needed an 88th-minute winner from Aguero to progress. So far in this competition, they have only face one Premier League side which was Burnley, with the rest being teams from lower leagues.
Similarly, Brighton faced Bournemouth in their first match with their following matches have been teams from lower leagues. They had a scare in the last round when they faced Championship side Millwall and had to win a thrilling 14 penalty shootout. Brighton will be in for a very difficult battle at Wembley and will have to play their best football to have any chance of progressing to the final.
Watford and Wolves are the best of the rest in the Premier League this season as they are currently sitting in 7th and 8th. Watford have so far only conceded one goal this whole tournament which is quite impressive. Wolves on the other hand, had to beat Liverpool 2-1 in their first game. They then had a scare where they nearly lost the League One side Shrewsbury Town and needed a 93rd minute equaliser to force a replay. They won the replay 3-2 and then beat Bristol City 1-0. Their last game in the quarter-final was against Manchester United, which they won without really looking like they were going to be knocked out. Wolves and Watford faced each other in October in a match which Watford won 0-2. However, this game will be very different as it is a semi-final and should be a very tight affair with both teams eager to reach the final.
