Arsenal who defeated Lincoln City in the quarter-final by 5-0 will be eyeing a record 13th FA Cup title this time surpassing Manchester United.

They are currently tied on 12 titles along with Red Devils who equalled them by winning it last season.

Arsenal are the most successful team in this tournament in recent history as they won it back to back in 2014 and 2015.

For Manchester City, Pep Guardiola's realistic chance of winning a title in his maiden season lies in the FA Cup. They will go all guns blazing against the Gunners in the semi-final.

Chelsea, on the other hand, will be eyeing a domestic double. They are on the verge of winning the English Premier League title and the FA Cup title will just be an icing on the cake for Antonio Conte.
