Manchester United could face Chelsea in the FA Cup quarter-finals
17 February 2013 06:26
Chelsea, the defending champions who are looking to win the competition for a
fourth time in five years, secured their place in round five with a 4-0
fourth-round replay defeat of Brentford today and will face npower
Championship side Middlesbrough next.
The winner of that tie will then play either runaway Barclays Premier League
leaders United or Reading in the quarter-finals, with those teams playing
their fifth-round clash at Old Trafford tomorrow night.
Reigning Premier League champions Manchester City, who saw off Leeds 4-0 today
in their fifth-round clash, were handed a home tie with Championship outfit
Barnsley in the last eight as they look to repeat their 2010 FA Cup success.
Blackburn's reward for their shock 1-0 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates
Stadium yesterday was an away tie with fellow Championship side Millwall,
who ended the run of non-league Luton in the fifth round with a 3-0 triumph.
The other quarter-final will see Wigan, 4-1 victors over Huddersfield this
afternoon, travel to either Oldham or Everton.
