The victorious sides from those games will be joined in the semi-final draw by the winners of Wednesday’s quarter-finals, which see Stoke host Tottenham and Everton travel to Manchester United.

Tottenham’s last trophy came in this competition in 2008, while Man United went all the way in 2017. Holders Man City, meanwhile, won the last three editions of the tournament.

While the semi-finals are due to take place in early January, the final was this week delayed from late February until the end of April due to a desire to welcome as many fans as possible to Wembley Stadium amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
