61% want to face this side in the FA Cup semi-finals

As expected, Arsenal progressed to the semi-finals of the FA Cup having beaten non-league outfit Lincoln City 5-0 at the Emirates last Saturday.

The result has somewhat eased a little pressure off Arsene Wenger’s shoulder following the club’s drubbing to Bayern Munich in the Champions League last week. But the Frenchman still has a section of fans on his back, wanting him to leave when his contract expires at the end of the season.

Another FA Cup triumph this season could go a long way in terms of Wenger’s future. Win the competition and it could prove to be just about enough for some to see him continue managing the club beyond this season. Lose it and it could mean the end of his 21-year reign.

Manchester City and Tottenham are also in the pot for the semi-final draw tonight. One more space needs to be filled and it will go to either Chelsea or Manchester United who play tonight at Stamford Bridge.

With this in mind, I wanted to know which team Arsenal fans would like to go up against in the semi-final stage of the FA Cup. Here are those results. Well it’s not surprising that 61% of votes casted want the Gunners to face Spurs. Manchester City came in second place with 31%, while only 8% want to draw the winner of Chelsea or Manchester United.

The draw takes place following the outcome of tonight’s game and whatever the outcome, it promises to be two big FA Cup semi-final matches at Wembley coming your way on April 22nd and 23rd.
