ESPN FC's Des Curran recaps Arsenal's 4-1 victory over Everton in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

Arsenal will face Wigan in the semi-finals of the FA Cup after the Championship side's shock victory against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

The other semi-final sees League One side Sheffield United take on Hull City. Both last four matches will take place at Wembley on the weekend of April 12/13.

Arsenal defeated Everton 4-1 at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Goals from Mesut Ozil, Mikel Arteta and Olivier Giroud (two) ensured Arsene Wenger's side beat Everton, ahead of Tuesday's meeting with Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

The last time the Gunners lifted silverware was in the FA Cup, when they beat Manchester United on penalties in 2005.

Hull overcame Sunderland 3-0 on Sunday, after Sheffield United saw off Charlton Athletic 2-0.

In beating Charlton, the Blades became the first club from the third tier to reach the semi-finals of the competition since Wycombe in 2001.

Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough was a losing finalist at Wembley in the 1991 FA Cup as a player with Nottingham Forest and he will be aiming to take his side all the way to the showpiece, with a Yorkshire team guaranteed a place thanks to Sunday's draw.
