LONDON, Mar 24 (Reuters) Chelsea and Liverpool will meet for the 10th time in two seasons after being paired in the FA Cup semi-final draw today.

West Ham United will play Middlesbrough or Charlton Athletic in the other semis.

Champions Chelsea, bidding for a league and cup double, have played Liverpool nine times in the last two seasons with Liverpool winning just one, last season's Champions League semi-final second leg.

This season Chelsea won 4-1 at Anfield and 2-0 at home in their two league games while their two Champions League meetings were goalless draws.

If Charlton win their replay against Middlesbrough following Thursday's goalless draw at The Valley they will be in the semis for the first time since they won the Cup in 1947. They have played West Ham five times in the Cup, losing every time.

The ties will be played on April 22/23 at neutral venues, yet to be decided.

The final will be at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium on May 13 after the rebuilding of Wembley fell behind schedule.
