FA Cup: New rules

Everton, Watford, Crystal Palace, West Ham and Manchester United have learned their FA Cup semi-final opponents after the draw for the last four was made on Monday evening.

The Toffees’ reward for defeating Chelsea at Goodison Park on Saturday is a semi-final showdown – their first since 2012 – against either Manchester United and West Ham, who need a replay following their 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

The other semi-final sees Alan Pardew’s Crystal Palace take on Watford in an all-London affair. It is the Eagles’ first semi-final appearance since 1995 while Watford are in the final four for the first time since 2003.

Ties will be played on the weekend of April 23 and 24, but the replay date of West Ham’s clash with Manchester United cannot be confirmed until the Red Devils learn their Europa League fate against Liverpool on Thursday night.
