FA Cup Semi Final Draw Made: Bradford Could Face Arsenal, While Liverpool Need To Beat Blackburn To Face Aston Villa

Posted by

Arsenal and Liverpool could still face each other in the FA Cup Final.

Arsenal have been rewarded for beating Manchester United with a tie against either Bradford or Reading for a place in the FA Cup final, while Brendan Rodgers’s Liverpool will face Aston Villa, but only if they beat Blackburn Rovers in the replay.

Arsenal – who beat Manchester United 2-1 at Old Trafford – will be wary of facing Bradford, having lost to them in the Capital One Cup the year the Bantams reached the final. But Phil Parkinson’s have a tough replay at the Madejski Stadium ahead of them, following their 0-0 draw at Valley Parade on Saturday.

Liverpool also need to get through a replay, if they want to make the final four. A drab goalless draw against Blackburn, means that they will go again at Ewood Park. If they can knock out the Championship side, they will be in the only all-Premier League semi-final against Tim Sherwood’s Aston Villa, who beat West Brom 2-0 to reach this stage.
