United come into this fixture after a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace in the last league fixture. An early own goal followed by a powerful strike from defender Matteo Darmian saw the Red Devils seal three points.

Louis van Gaal saw his side beat West Ham United in the quarter-final replay, which saw them seal a berth in the last four of the FA Cup. It is for the first time the Dutchman has made his to Wembley with United.

Everton, on the other hand, made it to the semi-final after eliminating Chelsea from the FA Cup. Romelu Lukaku scored a brace against his former club that helped his side progress further in the competition.

However, Roberto Martinez's side have struggled in the Premier League as they suffered a 4-0 defeat at the hands of local rivals Liverpool in the Merseyside derby. The winner of this clash will face either Palace or Watford, who will face each other in the second semi-final of the FA Cup.

What managers say

Roberto Martinez: "Nobody deserved to experience that — no fan or player deserved to be in that situation or chain of events. We need to move on quickly and repay our fans with a proper performance and showing in the semi-final."

Louis van Gaal: "What he [Martinez] is doing is the sign of a good manager because I believe in young players too. They are always a stimulus in the group and that is very important. I think also that you have to make a mix of older and younger players in your team."
