Everton draw United (and Rooney) in FA Cup

Everton will face Manchester United in the semi finals of the FA Cup after beating Middlesbrough at Goodison Park yesterday. The Toffees came back from 1-0 down at half time to win 2-1 thanks to two headed goals from Fellaini and Louis Saha, and will now being playing United – and ex-blue Wayne Rooney – at Wembley for the last time since they beat them in the final to win the Cup in 1995.

'From the moment we beat Liverpool our fans have been saying it is our year,' said captain and ex-United player Phil Neville. 'It has been too long since this club won silverware. Now we've got to step up and be men.'

The draw also offers up the chance of a London derby between Arsenal and Chelsea, although the Gunners still have to take on Hull City at the Emirates in the delayed sixth round match.

The games will be played on the 18th and 19th of April at Wembley Stadium.
