Arsenal has won the FA Cup a record 13 times, one more than Manchester United _ which squeezed into the semis with an extra-time 2-1 win against 10-man Norwich on Saturday (Sunday NZ time).

The draws for the last four of the FA Cup has been conducted on Sunday.

Manchester United and Manchester City represent Manchester, while Arsenal and Chelsea hail from London.

With five Premier League teams remaining in the hat, the draw took place at half-time during City's clash with Newcastle at St James' Park - which Pep Guardiola's side went on to win 2-0.

Raheem Sterling added a fine second 22 minutes from time as City booked their a last-four slot.

The ties will be played on the 18th and 19th July.
