One of the most high-profile semi-final stage in FA Cup history has got two super awesome match-ups, and Manchester City can look forward to a simply sensational game at Wembley Stadium next month.

The Citizens have been draw against Arsenal, and will be the away team in the match, which doesn't mean much except that City don'tget the chance to choose which kits they'll use.

Arsenal have had a pretty easy route to the semis, which started with an away match against Championship Preston North End, followed by another away tie where the Gunners dispatched Southampton at St. Mary's. Up next, Arsenal knocked out non-League Sutton United, and won the quarterfinal at the Emirates against non-League Lincoln City.

City is without a doubt the team with the toughest road to the semifinals: four away ties against three Premier League teams and a Championship side fighting for promotion. City needed a replay to knock Huddersfield Town out of the Cup, but won on the road against West Ham United, Crystal Palace and Middlesbrough to reach the Final Four.

City beat Arsenal 2-1 at the Etihad in the only meeting between these two teams so far this season.

This is the full semi-final draw, with the matches being played on 22nd/23rd of April:

Chelsea vs. Tottenham Hotspur

Arsenal vs. Manchester City
