Brighton booked their place in the final four for the competition with a 5-0 thrashing of League Two’s Grimsby Town.
Meanwhile, City face Championship club Sheffield United, who beat Blackburn Rovers on Sunday. Pep Guardiola’s side face second division rivals for the second time in a row, after eliminating former club captain Vincent Kompany’s Burnley with a 6-0 win on Saturday.
City have scored 14 unanswered goals in their imperious FA Cup run so far, knocking out Premier League leaders Chelsea and Arsenal in the process.
United boss Erik ten Hag is looking to add to the Carabao Cup trophy he already won in his debut season at Old Trafford. The Dutchman has the opportunity to take three trophies this season with the club that is also still in the Europa League.
Guardiola’s team can also win three trophies this season. City face Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-final but are eight points behind Arsenal in the Premier League title race.
The semifinals will be played at Wembley Stadium on April 22 and 23 and the final will be played on June 3.
