Tottenham Hotspur find themselves in familiar territory as they did this time last year, having made it to the Semi-Finals of the FA Cup. Joining them in the draw today were Manchester United, Southampton, and Chelsea. In between these matches, Spurs supporters have had to hear the ridiculous notion of the #WembleyNarrative being turned around on them, but we can talk about that on another day.
The Semi-Final draw was today after Chelsea beat Leicester City in Extra Time, and Spurs now know their fate in a few weeks:

A resurgent Chelsea squad, who seem to actually care again after beating Leicester, have drawn Southampton in the other semi-final.
These matches will be played the weekend of April 21-22, which means our Premier League match with Brighton and Hove Albion on the 20th will have to be rescheduled to accommodate the tie. Spurs are also awaiting an update on when they’ll play Newcastle United from their last reschedule.
