Brighton and Hove Albion stand in the way of Manchester City reaching the FA Cup Final for the first time since 2013 after the pair were drawn together in the FA Cup semi-final.

The blues squeezed past Swansea on Saturday after coming back from 2-0 to win the match 3-2 and the Seagulls almost emulated City with a comeback of their own.

Traing 2-0, Brighton pulled it back to 2-2 and went through by winning the ensuing penalty shoot out after extra time led to no further goals.

The match will be Brighton's first Semi-Final since 1983, when they lost to Manchester United. Ominously for City, the Seagulls beat City 4-0 on their way to the final that year and the blues will be eager to avoid a repeat of that particular scoreline.

The match will be played on the weekend of 6th and 7th April.
