Holders United face stiff away tie to Chelsea while history-makers Lincoln learn their fate

The FA Cup quarter-final draw took place this evening.

DEFENDING FA CUP champions Manchester United face a tough test in this year’s quarter finals as they were matched with Premier League leaders Chelsea for a showdown at Stamford Bridge.

Fifth-tier Lincoln City will play either Sutton or Arsenal, following their incredible fifth-round victory over Burnley.

They’re the first non-league team in 103 years to reach the last eight, with the shock of the competition so far and one of the biggest upsets in FA Cup history coming on yesterday.

Millwall who also pulled off an upset and knocked 2015/16 Premier League champions Leicester out of the competition yesterday, play Tottenham.

The fourth and final decider sees Middlesbrough face either Manchester City or Huddersfield, who drew 0-0 on Saturday.

Two quarter finalists are yet to be confirmed. Sutton, who are the lowest-ranked team still left in the cup, host the Gunners tomorrow night.

The replay between Manchester City and Huddersfield is provisionally set for Tuesday, 28 February at the Etihad Stadium.
