Wright drew the balls live on ITV after Manchester United beat Liverpool to complete the semi-final line-up.

The Red Devils’ dramatic extra-time victory sees them join Chelsea, Coventry and Manchester City.

As the draw began, Wright dramatically revealed each ball from the bag before throwing it away as he took out the final ball.

Fans were left amazed by his performance, with some even comparing it to Rod Stewart’s infamous 2017 Scottish Cup draw.

One supporter wrote on X: “Ian Wright giving Rod Stewart a run for his money here!”

Another added: “Ian Wright channelling his inner Rod Stewart.”

A third fan also commented: “Ian Wright is a national treasure.”

Meanwhile, one more said: “Petition to get Ian Wright to do every single FA Cup draw please. That was brilliant!”
