London: Manchester City will face either Chelsea or Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley.

Roberto Mancini`s side confirmed their place in the last four with a commanding 5-0 thrashing of Barnsley on Saturday but will have to await the outcome of a replay after Chelsea came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at Old Trafford on Sunday evening.

After falling behind to first-half goals from Chicharito and Wayne Rooney, the FA Cup holders rallied, securing a replay thanks to strikes from Eden Hazard and Ramires.

The other semi-final tie will see either Millwall or Blackburn Rovers meet Wigan. The Premier League side surprisingly defeated Everton 3-0 at Goodison Park, while the Championship outfits also face a replay after a 0-0 draw on Sunday.

Should one of the eventual finalists qualify for next season`s Champions League, it will mean one of the Latics, Millwall or Blackburn would qualify for the Europa League next season in place of the sixth-place side in the top flight.

The ties will take place on the weekend of April 13 and 14.
