LONDON (AP) — Manchester United will play Tottenham in the FA Cup semifinals at Spurs' temporary Wembley Stadium home.
The draw Sunday saw last year's finalist Chelsea face Southampton in the other semifinal.
Both matches will be played at Wembley over the weekend of April 21-22.
Wembley is the designated neutral ground for the semifinals — and final — but Tottenham is well accustomed to it after taking up temporary residence at the national stadium this season while its home at White Hart Lane is being redeveloped.
The draw followed Sunday's quarterfinals where Chelsea beat Leicester 2-1 thanks to Pedro's extra time winner, and Southampton beat third-tier Wigan 2-0 in Mark Hughes' first game in charge of the Saints.
Twelve-time FA Cup champion Manchester United and Tottenham secured their passages to the semifinals on Saturday. United beat Brighton 2-0, and Tottenham defeated Swansea 3-0.
