Odion Ighalo had given United the lead before Todd Cantwell levelled to send the game into extra-time but Harry Maguire scored in the 118th minute to send Man Utd into the semi-finals where they'll now meet Chelsea in the last four.

Substitutes made the difference for Chelsea and Arsenal.

Harry Maguire struck an extra-time victor as United saw off 10-man Norwich in the first quarter-final on Saturday, while Chelsea beat Leicester 1-0 on Sunday thanks to Ross Barkley's second-half strike.

Forward Nicolas Pepe's penalty put Arsenal ahead midway through the first half, after United midfielder John Lundstram had an early header ruled out for offside.

The action kicked off with Man United making tough work of seeing off relegation candidates Norwich City, who pushed them to within seconds of a penalty shootout. So unless the Magpies can turn things around in the second half, City will be heading to Wembley to face Arsenal.

The FA Cup semi-final line-up has now been completed after Manchester City defeated Newcastle United, and the Citizens' opponents have already been confirmed.

Ings struck in each half to move one goal behind top scorer Jamie Vardy, who is enduring a lean spell for third-place Leicester.
