FA Cup semi-final dates confirmed

The games had already been set for the weekend of April 10/11, but

the FA have now revealed when the ties will be played. Chelsea’s

clash with Aston Villa is the first semi and will take place on

Saturday, April 10 at 5pm. The weekend’s other tie sees Portsmouth

face Tottenham or Fulham – who will replay their quarter-final on

March 24 following their goalless draw at Craven Cottage – with

that game taking place at 4pm on Sunday, April 11.
