Manchester United find out FA Cup semi-final schedule

Manchester United will lock horns with Brighton & Hove Albion in the FA Cup semi-final on April 23.

As per, the Wembley Stadium game will kick off at 4.30 pm (BST) and it will be broadcast live on BBC One in the United Kingdom. 

Meanwhile, the other semi-final game will see Manchester City take on Championship outfit Sheffield United the previous day (4.45 pm).

Erik ten Hag’s men reached this stage of the competition after defeating Fulham 3-1 in the quarter-finals earlier this month

The Cottagers were in the ascendancy until Willian and Aleksandar Mitrovic were sent off in the 72nd minute. 

United then took full advantage of their numerical superiority to win the Old Trafford encounter comfortably.

Having already lifted the Carabao Cup, the Red Devils now have a brilliant opportunity to achieve a domestic double for the first time since 1994. 

They will face Roberto De Zerbi’s Brighton who claimed a decisive 5-0 victory over Grimsby Town in the previous round. 

The Seagulls will have high hopes in the FA Cup as they knocked holders Liverpool out of the competition with a 2-1 success in the fourth round in January. 

They have been flying in the English top-flight this season and stand an excellent chance of qualifying for Europe.

Brighton defeated United 2-1 at Old Trafford in August, with Pascal Groß providing a vital contribution by scoring twice. 

Ten Hag’s side will have to produce a far better performance this time to make it to their second final this season.
