Assuming Chelsea can navigate their fifth round replay against Birmingham City, who managed to hold the Blues to a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge, they've got what looks like another straightforward draw in the quarterfinals. Another Championship team awaits - it's Leicester City at home.
I don't want to say Chelsea will cruise to a win on March 6th, because I'm nowhere near that confident, but no matter how poorly we're doing of late we're still going to be favourites to advance against Birmingham. If we do get through, it'd be nice to get a straightforward win to take us into the semifinals. On paper, the only other team that can match us remaining in the competition is Tottenham Hotspur (who managed to draw against a League One side today), so we have to take advantage of a fairly kind draw. A couple of trips to Wembley this year would make us all feel quite a lot better about things.
Full draw after the jump...
Liverpool or Brighton & Hove Albion vs. Stoke City
