FA Cup Semi-Final draw: Spurs draw Manchester United

Conte FA Cup 'not important' to Chelsea

United joined them when they defeated Brighton & Hove Albion 2-0 on Saturday evening and the two teams will face off at Wembley for a chance to be in the final.

The west London club's hopes of finishing the season with silverware rest exclusively with the FA Cup and they will now face Southampton in a last-four tussle at Wembley next month.

Chelsea beat Leicester City 2-1 after extra time to seal their spot in the FA Cup semifinal.

Chelsea was made to work hard to progress in the only remaining competition it can win this season.

The in-form Willian broke away on the counter attack as the striker was found one-on-one with the goalkeeper, slotting the ball past Kasper Schmeichel.

Leicester improved after the interval and Jamie Vardy might have equalized when he headed a good opportunity over.

Both sides went for a victor in the final 10 minutes - Morata backheeling against the post from a Cesc Fabregas cross, although the offside flag was up, and Vardy firing low at Caballero before Schmeichel was quickly off his line to deny Morata.

Western powers see the nerve-agent attack as the latest sign of alleged Russian meddling overseas . Trump, echoing the British government , said it looked as though Moscow was behind the attack.

Mahrez put in a low cross and although Vicente Iborra was twice denied by blocks, Vardy clipped home the loose ball.

Just when it looked like both sides wouldn't be separated after the interval, N'Golo Kante, who was superb throughout the match, picked out Pedro with a looping cross that fooled Schmeichel in goal.

Pedro, who replaced Willian at the beginning of extra time, completed a 2-1 victory for Chelsea with his goal in the 105th minute.

Hughes was appointed Southampton boss last week following the sacking of Argentine Mauricio Pellegrino and his side, 18th in the Premier League, struggled in the opening 45 minutes against League One promotion chasers Wigan.

But the visitors improved in the second half and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg made the breakthrough in the 62nd minute when he converted a corner at the near post.

Portuguese right back Cedric finally sealed the win on a counterattack in injury time.
