After a dramatic FA Cup fifth round, the draw for the quarter-finals produced a mouthwatering set of clashes on Sunday night.


The stand-out tie sees top-flight giants Chelsea and holders Manchester United go head to head at Stamford Bridge, with Antonio Conte’s Premier League leaders looking to win the double.

However, in Jose Mourinho’s United, the west Londoners will face an in-form side driven by the goals of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

History-making non-leaguers Lincoln City have been rewarded for their dramatic win away to Burnley with a potential trip to the Emirates, that is if Arsenal can overcome another non-league side, Sutton United, on Monday night.

Although, imagine if we witnessed an all-non league quarter-final and then a non-league side in the semi-finals?!

Elsewhere, Aitor Karanka’s Middlesbrough will host either Manchester City or Huddersfield United after the two sides played out a goalless draw at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday.

Rounding off the four fixtures is an intriguing London derby which pits Premier League high-flyers Tottenham against League One side Millwall, slayers of Leicester City,  at White Hart Lane.


Quite a few tasty games there!
