Premier League title holders Chelsea will travel to former champions Leicester in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

The draw also sees Manchester United host Brighton in a re-run of the 1983 final which saw the Red Devils win a replay 4-0 after the first game ended all-square.

Southampton, who won 2-1 away to West Brom at the weekend, will travel to either Manchester City or League One promotion hopefuls Wigan.

Finally, Tottenham or Rochdale, who are currently bottom of League One, will face either Sheffield Wednesday or Swansea.

No belting ties there but four of the top-flight big six look very well placed to make the semi-finals.

The games will take place between the 16th and 19th of March.

Here’s the list of ties…

Leicester v Chelsea

Manchester United v Brighton

Sheffield Wednesday or Swansea v Rochdale or Tottenham

Wigan or Manchester City v Southampton
