The match has been scheduled for Sunday rather than Saturday as Chelsea face a trip to Russia to take on Rubin Kazan in the Europa League on April 11, and the FA needed to make a decision before the Blues' quarter-final replay with United on April 1.

Championship side Millwall will therefore take on Wigan, who have reached the last four for the first time, in the other semi-final at Wembley at 5.15pm on Saturday April 13.

Millwall and Manchester City have been allocated the west end of the stadium and will receive 31,514 tickets.

Wigan and the other semi-finalists will be given 31,863 tickets.

The winning clubs in both games earn £900,000 from the FA Cup Prize Fund, with the runners-up collecting £450,000.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
