Semi-final derby on the cards


Chelsea could be set for an all-London showdown with Spurs in the FA Cup semi-finals if they win their re-staged tie against Bolton.

The Blues were handed the possibility of a Wembley date against Harry Redknapp’s men in today’s draw for the last four following their own 5-2 victory over Leicester City.

Liverpool, who beat Stoke this afternoon, could face Merseyside rivals Everton in the other semi if the Toffees can win their replay with Sunderland, having played out a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park in the original fixture.

Tottenham’s clash with the Trotters will have to be played again after the quarter-final was abandoned on Saturday evening after Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba collapsed on the pitch late in the first half with the score level at 1-1.

The Blues continued their recent revival on Roberto Di Matteo with an impressive display at home to Leicester in which Fernando Torres ended his goal drought with a double.

All of the semi-final ties are scheduled to take place at Wembley over the weekend of April 14 and 15.
