Monday's draw also pitted Portsmouth, the only Premier League side left in the competition, against Championship high-flyers West Bromwich Albion.

It is the first time since 1908 that only one team from the top flight reached the semi-finals.

Both ties will be played at Wembley on the weekend of April 5-6.
