Our closest challengers are Arsenal, who have made it to the last four on 29 occasions. With the Gunners in Emirates FA Cup action against Sheffield United at 13:00 BST on Sunday, they would match the Reds’ record with a victory. However, should Chris Wilder’s Blades progress, then United will hold the record outright.
The Gunners have won 20 of their semi-finals; the same as United, although the capital club have claimed the trophy on one more occasion than us.
Also close to the top of the list are Everton, with 26 appearances in the semis, while their Merseyside neighbours Liverpool have played at the same stage 24 times.
