Arsene Wenger's men will now face the Latics in the semi-finals as they bid to end their nine-year wait for silverware while Hull take on Sheffield United in the other match at Wembley.

The quote currently chalked up by Ladbrokes is clear top price with Coral, BetVictor and bet365 all as short as 4/9 while their opponents can be backed at a general 8/1.

The Gunners most recent trophy came in 2005 when they defeated Manchester United on penalties at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium to lift the FA Cup and they booked their place in the last four after thrashing Everton 4-1 on Saturday.

Hull (4/1, Sky Bet and Betfred) earned their day at Wembley with a 3-0 victory over Sunderland on Sunday to line up an all-Yorkshire clash against Sky Bet League One side Sheffield United (16/1, Coral and Boylesports).

In beating Charlton 2-0, 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 final as a player with Nottingham Forest and he will be aiming to take his side all the way to the final.
