Manchester Derby Drawn for FA Cup Semi-Final

After defeating Arsenal in the quarter-final, Manchester United has been drawn to play their cross-town rivals, Manchester City. In the past, this might have been a much one-side affair, but now, after spending millions, the Citizens are seen by some as real challengers.

The last time these two sides met at Old Trafford, the Red Devils defeated Manchester City thanks to a wonder goal from Wayne Rooney, a candidate for goal of the season. It wasn't as comfortable a match as some Manc fans had hoped for, but it was a win none the less. Roberto Mancini will be hoping to capitalize on all of the money spend, looking to win his first trophy with such an experienced City side.

In the other semi-final match, Bolton will play Stoke City to see which one will reach their first FA Cup Final in over 50 years. The matches will be played on the 16th and 17th of April at the New Wembley Stadium. Any predictions for the teams that will progress to the final?
