The FA Cup

Everton FA Cup semi-final date set

facupEverton’s Emirates FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United or West Ham United has been confirmed.

The Toffees will take on the winner of the quarter-final replay between the sides on Saturday April 23rd, with a kick off time set for 5:15pm, with the clash being broadcast live on either BBC One or BT Sport.

Roberto Martinez’s men progressed to the last four of the competition after seeing off the challenges of Dagenham and Redbridge, Carlisle United, AFC Bournemouth and Chelsea.

And the Blues will find out their last four opponents when the Red Devils and the Hammers, who fought out a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford last Saturday, square off at Upton Park on March 22nd.

Everton have yet to win any of the three encounters with Louis Van Gaal’s and Slaven Bilic’s side so far this term, however – a 3-0 home reserve at the hands of Man United being followed up by a 1-1 draw and 3-2 loss to the Londoners.

It is the third time in seven seasons that the Toffees have made it to the semi-finals of the domestic cup competition, which have been held at national stadium Wembley for a number of years.

With a date now set, Everton officials will travel to Wembley on Monday ahead of announcing ticket details for the game.
