Blues v Villa first up for semis weekend

The Football Association has confirmed the kick-off times and dates for next month's FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley. The games had already been set for the weekend of 10/11th April, but the FA have now revealed when the ties will be played. Chelsea's clash with Aston Villa is the first semi-final to take place on Saturday, 10th April at 5pm. The weekend's other tie sees Portsmouth face Tottenham or Fulham - who will replay their quarter-final on 24th March following their goalless draw at Craven Cottage - with that game taking place at 4pm on Sunday, 11th April. The showpiece final takes place on 15th May to give England more time to prepare for this summer's World Cup finals.
