The final four of the FA Cup has been determined as Tottenham and Everton won their respective matches on Tuesday night, rounding out the all Premier League semifinals with Chelsea and Liverpool.

Tottenham beat Bolton 3-1 at White Hart Lane in a rescheduled match from March 17th after Bolton's Fabrice Muamba collapsed on the pitch.

The Spurs put pressure on the Bolton net all night long, but keeper Adam Bogdan made save after save until he let in a Ryan Nelsen header in the 74th minute.

Three minutes after the Nelsen goal, Gareth Bale all but sealed the victory with a goal, which was then followed by a Louis Saha strike for the North London club's third goal.

Kevin Davies did score for Bolton, but it was too late as Saha put in his goal right after the Trotters forward scored in the 90th minute to take away any hope of a comeback.

Tottenham will now face Chelsea, a club who they drew 0-0 on Saturday, at Wembley on April 15th.

The other quarterfinal of the night was a replay between Sunderland and Everton at the Stadium of Light.

After a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park ten days ago, Everton took to the road and completed their mission of getting to Wembley by winning 2-0.

January singing Nikica Jelavic scored in the 24th mintue for the Toffees, who also were the beneficiaries of a David Vaughan own-goal in the 54th minute.

The win advanced Everton to the semifinal on April 14th against their Merseyside rivals Liverpool, who have beaten the Toffees twice in the Premier League this season.

David Moyes' club will look to avenge those two league losses against the Carling Cup champions and look to get back to the FA Cup final after coming up short in the 2009 final—losing to Chelsea.

Tottenham's wait to get to the final is even longer as they have not played in England's top club competition final since they beat Nottingham Forest in the 1991 final at the old Wembley Stadium.
