Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal qualified for the semi-finals of the FA Cup on Sunday. The 'Blues' won 1-0 against Leicester City, the 'Gunners' were too strong 1-2 for Sheffield United due to a late goal and City defeated Newcastle United 0-2.
On Saturday, Manchester United already joined the last four with a 1-2 victory over Norwich City. There was already a draw for the semi-finals on Sunday, which will be played at Wembley as well as the final match.
Manchester United will meet Chelsea and Arsenal will face City. The performance dates are July 18 and 19.
At Leicester against Chelsea, the only goal of the game at King Power Stadium fell in the 63rd minute. The cross was from Willian and Ross Barkley shot the ball into the far corner (0-1), making Leicester's FA Cup dream come to an end. The club has never won the cup, but has lost the final four times. The last time was in 1968.

Two hits in the final phase at Arsenal
Arsenal also seemed to be heading for a 0-1 win on Bramall Lane earlier in the day through a utilized penalty in the 25th minute by Nicolas Pépé. In the course of the game, Sheffield became stronger and three minutes before the end, the home team thought it would be an extension, even though it received help from the Arsenal defense.
After a throw-in by Sheffield, Sead Kolasinac shot the ball at another Arsenal defender, which David McGoldrick took advantage of by scoring the 1-1. Due to the hit by Ceballos in the first minute of the extra time, Arsenal did well after that.
The FA Cup tournament can offer Arsenal a solution in the hunt for a European ticket. In the Premier League, the team of manager Mikel Arteta is only ninth. The last season that Arsenal did not play European was 1995/1996.
Incidentally, a game was also played in the Premier League on Sunday. Southampton won 1-3 at Watford, thanks to two goals from Danny Ings and a nice free kick from James Ward-Prowse. The Watford goal was an own goal from Southampton defender Jan Bednarek.
