The penultimate round of the FA Cup will feature a pair of heavyweight bouts, with some of the Premier League’s top clubs battling for a chance to win the 139th edition of the competition.

Manchester United and Chelsea – two of the tournament’s most successful clubs – will meet in the semifinals. It’s a rematch of the 2017-18 FA Cup final, which Chelsea won 1-0 to secure their eighth title.

Arsenal will face the winner of Sunday’s quarterfinal clash between holders Manchester City and Newcastle United.

City won their sixth FA Cup trophy by thrashing Watford 6-0 last year, while Arsenal have won the tournament a record 13 times. Newcastle United haven’t won the FA Cup in over 60 years.

The semifinal encounters are scheduled to take place July 18 and 19.
