The Premier League Golden Boot is up for grabs and both Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero adding to their tally today to lead the top-scorers table at 20 goals each.

Who will win the Golden Boot?

Arsenal were expected to advance vs. Reading in the FA Cup semifinals. They did, 2-1. Liverpool were also a favourite, but things ended badly...

Wembley belongs to Villa as Sherwood's game plan beats Liverpool

Fabian Delph and Aston Villa came from behind to book their place in the FA Cup final with a 2-1 win over Liverpool.

Aston Villa's season is set for a finale that barely seemed plausible just a few weeks ago. Tim Sherwood's appointment as manager was made just in time for him to take a watching brief from the stands as his new team beat Leicester City in the fifth round of the FA Cup. Now Sherwood has inspired Villa to a place in the 2015 final. It will be the club's first appearance in an FA Cup final for 15 years.

The 2-1 semifinal victory over Liverpool was only Sherwood's 10th game in charge. In that time...

1. Villa stun sorry Liverpool

With the Champions League ebbing out of reach in light of Manchester City's 2-0 win against West Ham and Liverpool's FA Cup dream now dead, these are difficult times for Brendan Rodgers. Jurgen Klopp is free this summer and on the search for employment.

Villa boss Tim Sherwood, meanwhile, exploded with joy as he celebrated victory in maniacal...

FA Cup semifinals offer plenty of intrigue among the four managers

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes and Stewart Robson preview Arsenal's FA Cup semifinal with Reading and wonder if the Gunners will repeat the mistakes of last year.

Frustrating fixture scheduling has ensured that the FA Cup semifinals won't be centre stage this weekend. Both ties clash with a notable Premier League contest, which seems a great shame considering that both games have tremendous potential.

There's a nice mixture between a potential giant-killing on Saturday, and an all-Premier League tie on the Sunday. The most interesting battles, however, are taking place in the dugouts.

Arsenal vs. Reading

Saturday's semifinal provides an obvious contrast...

Sherwood vs. Rodgers, Arsenal out to defend trophy - Five FA Cup themes

Arsene Wenger is out to defend his FA Cup trophy.

Wembley Way this weekend will greet fans of four clubs hoping to be back there on May 30 for the final. On Saturday, Championship side Reading attempt to become the first Football League finalists since Cardiff City lost 2008's final to Portsmouth, while holders Arsenal want a repeat of last season when they beat Hull to claim the prize. Meanwhile, Sunday sees Aston Villa and Liverpool find a welcome distraction from their Premier League problems.

Here are five themes to consider.

1. The forgotten...

Aston Villa looking for a change in FA Cup fortunes

Aston Villa's Christian Benteke previews his side's FA Cup semifinal match against Liverpool, where he still believes Brendan Rodgers' side are the favourites to progress to Wembley.

Aston Villa have a rich history in the FA Cup but significantly less to feel proud of in recent years. In fact, it's been more like decades. For one of the great established clubs in England, the magic of the FA Cup has been distinctly lacking, and Sunday's semifinal represents a rare chance to take a step closer to recording a success in the modern era.

Only three clubs have won the competition more times than Villa -- Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham -- who have triumphed on seven occasions...
