FA Cup semi final draw: Date, time, fixtures for 2023 matches at Wembley

The 2022/23 FA Cup has the potential to unleash a few more upsets as the competition has already produced some sensational giant kills in the Premier League this season.

Aston Villa’s elimination in the third round – at the hands of Stevenage from EFL League Two – sparked a series of wild results as top sides Bournemouth, Nottingham Forest, Leicester City and Tottenham were all eliminated by lower-tier opponents.

The biggest shock of the round of 16 was fourth tier side Grimsby Town’s win over Southampton to secure a place in the quarters, while the other results guaranteed at least one second tier side to reach the semis.

Meanwhile, both Manchester clubs are still in the mix. Man United advanced after a wild quarter-final at Old Trafford in which the Red Devils were dominated by Fulham for 70 minutes before the Whites lost action entirely when two players and their manager were sent off and forced to play the last 20 minutes to play on nine men. United took advantage and scored three goals in a 3-1 win.

With the quarterfinals next on the agenda, The Sporting News looks ahead to the semifinals draw with everything you need to know.

Will there be replays of the FA Cup quarter-finals?

The 2022/23 FA Cup quarter-finals will not feature replays. The previous round (round of 16) was the first phase of this year’s tournament that did not include replays for games that ended in a draw after 90 minutes.

Instead of a replay, if teams are level after 90 minutes, they play 30 minutes of overtime, followed by a penalty shootout if necessary.

Replays were slowly being removed from the FA Cup. The English FA refrained from repeating the final in 1998/99. A year later, semifinal replays were abolished.

It took a few years for quarterfinal replays to be erased (2016–17) and the fifth round (round of 16) was the last round to be changed in 2018–19.
