Manchester United qualified by beating 10 man Norwich City on Saturday from an extra-time goal by Harry Maguire after Ighalo scored the opener.

 

The draw was made at half-time in the game between City and Newcastle, which Pep Guardiola’s side won 2-0 thanks to a Kevin de Bruyne penalty and a classy Raheem Sterling finish.

Chelsea also advanced to the semi-final after beating Leicester City at the King Power stadium earlier after a lone strike from Ross Barkley. Leicester City dominated the entire first 45 minutes but it was Frank Lampard’s tactical genius moment that changed the day.

 

The final of the FA Cup will also take place at Wembley on the 1st of August 2020 behind closed doors.
