Loughborough University Stadium will stage a double-header of FA Girls’ Youth Cup and Plate finals on Saturday 22 April.

Arsenal and Manchester United are to contest the Cup at 4pm that day, after the Gunners hit Aston Villa for six in one semi-final and United edged out visitors Chelsea 2-1 in the other.

First up at noon is the Plate, as Charlton Athletic and Sunderland go head-to-head for the silverware.

Again both semi-finals had gone the way of the home teams, as the Addicks eliminated Oxford United 2-1 and Sunderland just got the better of York City in a seven-goal thriller.
