Semi-finals

The semi-final draw was made after the conclusion of the quarter finals. Unlike the other rounds, the semi-final ties were played over two legs, with each team playing one leg at home and one away. Manchester United's quest for a unique domestic treble continued as they defeated Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 in the first leg at Old Trafford before a fine 4-1 win at Hillsborough in the second. Tranmere Rovers boosted their hopes of a first ever major trophy by defeating Aston Villa 3-1 in the first leg of the other semi-final, but they then found themselves on the receiving end of a 3-1 Villa win and lost the shootout, meaning that Villa went through and found themselves well placed to become the first team to win the trophy five times, though they were up against a Manchester United side who had topped the league virtually all season and were also chasing the FA Cup.
