The FA confirms the FA Cup semi-final between Arsenal and Tottenham will take place at Wembley.

It will be the first time the national stadium has hosted an FA Cup last four fixture.

FA spokesman Glen Kirton explained: 'We are aware that it is against tradition but our priority was the convenience and safety of the public. Our other option was to play it at Villa Park, but nobody wants 40,000 supporters travelling up the motorway."

Meanwhile young striker Kevin Campbell scores twice late on as Arsenal return to the top of the Division One table with a gritty 2-0 Highbury win over Leeds.

``Anyone who thinks that games against Leeds are going to be pretty is in for a shock," said manager George Graham.
