Manchester United will face Everton in the FA Cup semi-finals next month.

The other last-four tie will see Chelsea take on the winners of the one remaining quarter-final, Arsenal v Hull.

Both games will take place at Wembley, one on April 18 and the other the following day.

Everton came from behind to beat Middlesbrough 2-1 and book their place in the FA Cup semi-finals for the first time in 14 years.

David Wheater's header a minute from the break had given Middlesbrough a deserved lead.

But manager David Moyes brought on Louis Saha at half time and he helped change the game.

Everton levelled five minutes after the interval when Marouane Fellaini headed in from Tim Cahill's cross with keeper Brad Jones in no man's land.

And Saha bagged the winner, also with a header, from Steven Pienaar's cross.

Boro produced a late response but the hosts held firm to book a last-four trip to Wembley where they will face Quintuple-chasing Manchester United.

Gareth Southgate: "We've got to learn how to see matches off, especially when you get the lift of being a goal ahead.

"We knew we'd have a bombardment second half and we feel we've got the players to deal with it - in actual fact for that five-minute spell we didn't.

"That sums us up this season so far.''
