Manchester United or Middlesbrough will play Watford at a neutral ground in the FA Cup semi-final on April 14 or 15.

The Reds still have a replay to get through before they can think of Watford but as they failed to win only two of their home games this season, Boro will be massive outsiders when they attempt to shock the hosts on Monday.

Of course, once again doubts are raised about the draw as it managed to keep apart United and Chelsea and kept alive the prospect of a final between the big two. I don’t want to take either side in this argument so let’s say it’s looking a bit suspicious.

All in all, we are in a good position. We have six remaining home games on the domestic front, including the replay against Southgate’s men and if we win them all, we’ll almost certainly be champions, as well as get into the FA Cup final. Watford should be unable to pose us problems in the semis, especially with Ben Foster ineligible to play against his owners.

So, bring on Boro on Monday!
