Who joins Manchester United in the 2022/23 FA Cup semi finals: Derby at Wembley in the works?

The semi-finals of the 2022/23 FA Cup have been confirmed, with both Manchester clubs making it through the quarter-finals. 

Manchester City cruised past Burnley at home to win 6-0, with Erling Haaland scoring his sixth hat-trick of the season. On the other hand, Sheffield United won 3-2 against Blackburn Rovers to secure their place in the semi-final in spite of being a Championship club. 

FA Cup semi-finals confirmed: Manchester derby in the finals? 

Brighton eased past Grimsby with a 5-0 win to seal their spot in the last four and punch their ticket to Wembley. On the other hand, Manchester United won 3-1 against Fulham to become the last team to qualify for the semi-finals. 

Aleksander Mitrovic gave his side a shock lead in the quarter-finals, but was sent off shortly after alongside Willian. United eventually found their way back with a brace from Bruno Fernandes and a goal from Marcel Sabitzer helping them earn their fourth 3-1 win in the FA Cup out of four games played.

Manchester City will face Sheffield United while United go up against Brighton for a spot in the finals. Both Mancunian clubs will be the favourites to make it through. And the odds are currently in favour of a Manchester derby in the final to decide who wins the FA Cup. 

However, if history is any guide, then it will be foolish to count out teams like Brighton and Sheffield United just yet. Both have defeated some great teams to be in the last four of the tournament this year, and could very well surprise us with a spot in the final.
