FA Cup quarterfinal draw announced: Chelsea could travel to Old Trafford

Stu Forster

We've only just finished with the fourth round of the FA Cup thanks to Brentford taking us to a replay, but the quarterfinal draw has already happened. Chelsea, of course, need to beat Middlesbrough at the Riverside to get to the quarters, but if we do manage it we'll be one match away from Wembley.

That match? Either Manchester United or Reading. Away. So, that's a trip to Old Trafford against a side that's killing us in the league, unless Reading do us a massive, massive favour. That's a glamour tie, but it's certainly not an easy one -- and it's certainly not what Rafa Benitez would have been hoping for given the number of weaker teams in the draw. But if we wanted to defend our title, we were going to have to beat United at some point. Now's as good a time as any, right?

Here's the full draw...

Oldham or Everton vs. Wigan Athletic
Manchester City vs. Barnsley
Manchester United or Reading vs. Middlesbrough or Chelsea
Millwall vs. Blackburn Rovers
