FA Cup semi-final date and kick-off time announced


The date and kick-off time for Arsenal’s FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City has been announced.

The Gunners will face Pep Guardiola’s side on Sunday April 23rd at Wembley, kicking off at 3pm.

Amazingly, the two sides have only met three times previously in this competition. Two goals from Charlie George helped Arsenal to a 2-1 win at Maine Road on the way to winning the cup (and the double) in 1971.


Before that Arsenal beat City 2-1 in 1931-32, and were on the wrong end of a 2-0 scoreline in the 1903-04 season.

It will be the second meeting of the sides in three weeks as City come to the Emirates on April 2nd, the first game after the Interlull which kicks in after this weekend’s fixtures.
