Manchester United was sacked into the last four by their captain Harry Maguire with a victor deep into extra-time against 10-man Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday. The final will also take place behind closed doors at Wembley stadium.

The FA Cup Newcastle United vs Manchester City fixture is scheduled at 11 pm IST.

Ross Barkley provided Chelsea with the only goal that sent the Nigerian duo of Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho as well as their Leicester City teammates out of this season's FA Cup.

Substitutes made the difference as Chelsea and Arsenal both won away from home to reach the FA Cup semifinals.

Dani Ceballos' stoppage-time goal secured Arsenal's semi-final place in a 2-1 win at Sheffield United.

Barkley, one of three Chelsea replacements during half-time at the King Power Stadium, turned home the victor at the near post in the 63rd minute following Willian's cross. Ceballos pounced with a low shot, just four minutes after David McGoldrick had equalised from close range.

John Lundstram had an early header ruled out for offside for Sheffield United, who went behind when Chris Basham fouled Alexandre Lacazette in the penalty area and Pepe rattled home the spot kick in the 23rd minute.

Manchester United have been drawn to face Chelsea in the semi-finals of the FA Cup, with Arsenal playing holders Manchester City.

The remaining fixture is the round's final chance for an upset, with reigning champions Manchester City set to square off against Newcastle United at St James Park.

In Sunday's only Premier League game, striker Danny Ings scored twice to reach 18 goals as Southampton won 3-1 at struggling Watford.
