FA Cup Draw confirmed: Chelsea face former Premier League Champions away

The draw for the FA Cup quarter-finals has been made, with Premier League champions Chelsea set to play Leicester City for a place in the final four.

Jose Mourinho’s United beat Huddersfield Town 2-0 on Saturday evening and will now face Brighton in the quarter-finals, which take place on the weekend of Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th March.

Premier League leaders Manchester City, who face Wigan on Monday, have been drawn to play Southampton, while Spurs will travel to the winner of Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea City if they beat Rochdale.
