Manchester United to host Brighton in FA Cup quarter-finals

  • FA Cup 5th-Round Preview: Manchester United, Manchester City And Chelsea

The victor of Tottenham's match at Rochdale on Sunday will meet Sheffield Wednesday or Swansea, who will go to a replay after Saturday's 0-0 draw.

Ties will be played over the weekend of March 16-19.

'I have more Premier Leagues and League Cups so, of course, I'd like more [FA Cups] but I'm not thinking about myself.

Wigan were relegated from the EPL four days after a shocking FA Cup final win over City, thanks to a Ben Watson goal, and have endured a turbulent five years since, with two further relegations and a promotion.

"It would be good for my players not to think too much of the final next Sunday; they think about the final next Monday".

Huddersfield will head into this game in high spirits following a 4-1 victory over Bournemouth in the Premier League.


Blues head coach Antonio Conte has endured a hard second season in charge at Stamford Bridge, and his team are a shadow of the side that romped to the Premier League title last term. The Frenchman has restored calm and order to the ranks. The Fourth Division side found their path to the semis blocked by Crystal Palace, who went on to lose the final to Manchester United. It is interesting to note that the men from Manchester have already lost at the John Smiths this season in the Premier League.

But Claude Puel's men will not have it quite so easy in the next round when they welcome Chelsea, who will be looking to secure silverware at the end of a disappointing league season.

Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea fought out a 0-0 draw on Saturday and whoever prevails in the replay will entertain the winners of Sunday's Rochdale-Tottenham tie.

The winners of the repeat of the 2013 final between Wigan and City on Monday will host Southampton who beat West Brom 2-1 on Saturday.

However, the Foxes also retain an interest in the league campaign and could qualify for the Europa League if they edge ahead of Burnley and one of the top-six sides lifts the FA Cup.
