Chelsea were the last team in the semi-finals after overcoming Leicester in the final fixture of the weekend. The Blues needed extra time to get there, however. Ahead through Alvaro Morata, they were backed into 1.19 before Jamie Vardy's equaliser 15 minutes from the final whistle. A Kaspar Schmeichel error gave Chelsea an opportunity they couldn't ignore, Pedroheading them ahead from close range.
Wigan's FA Cup dream was ended by Southampton in Sunday's early kick-off, Mark Hughes winning his first game as Saints manager thanks to two second-half goals. His side rode their luck in the first 45 with the hosts failing to capitalise on some good openings and the Premier League side were clinical when they needed to be.
Spurs booked their semi-final place with a Saturday morning stroll past Swansea, the London side winning 3-0 in another dominant performance. A Christian Eriksen brace and an Erik Lamela solo effort were enough to get past their Welsh opponents, who now train their sights entirely on beating relegation.
Manchester United also advanced to the final four without conceding, beating Brighton 2-0 at Old Trafford, but it was another uninspiring display from Jose Mourinho's side. There was no place for Alexis Sanchez or Paul Pogba in the United starting XI and the game was only settled seven minutes from time when Nemanja Matic scored the Red Devils' second.
Despite winning the trophy eight times, it's been 27 years since Spurs lifted the FA Cup and they've not made a final since. The north Londoners may feel the pressure more than United, the 2016 winners. Chelsea were denied a league and cup double by Arsenal in last year's Wembley final but last lifted the trophy in 2011. Southampton last won the FA Cup in 1976 but made the final in 2002 when they were beaten by Arsenal.
