Football: Manchester United set up local derby in FA Cup final with tense penalties win over Brighton & Hove Albion

Manchester United have beaten Brighton & Hove Albion in a thrilling penalty shootout in their FA Cup semi-final at Wembley to set up the first-ever all-Manchester clash in the final.

Solly March - Brighton's seventh player to step up to the spot in the shootout - launched the ball over the bar, before Victor Lindelof found the net to secure a 7-6 shootout victory for United.

The nailbiting finale was a fitting ending, after 120 goalless minutes of wild swings in a game that careened from end to end all night.

Treble-chasing Manchester City await in the final, after they beat Sheffield United 3-0 in their semi.

The second semi was a rematch of the 1983 final, when Brighton lost to United in the south coast side's only appearance in the showcase game.

Erik ten Hag's United - 12-times FA Cup winners - are chasing a cup double, after winning the League Cup in February.

The FA Cup final is scheduled for June 4 (NZ time) at Wembley.
