FA Cup Quarter-Final Draw

Following the clash of two titans at Stamford Bridge tonight and the conclusion with it of the 5th round – the draw for this year’s Quarter-finals of the FA Cup took place. United’s 2-0 away win as Pogba continued to shine bright saw the Red Devils secure their first away win against Chelsea since 2012 and their fifth straight attendance to the FA Cup’s Quarter-finals.

Despite the apparent lack of Premier League teams in this year’s 5th round, there will still be a majority of Prem team’s in this year’s Quarter-finals – with 6/8 of the teams remaining representing the top league in English football following an extremely successful round of cup football for the bookie’s favourites. The Premier League sides that were in tonight’s hat included: Watford, Brighton, Manchester City, Wolves, Crystal Palace & Manchester United.

The other two sides to complete the draw both come from the Championship in the form of Millwall (their fourth FA cup QF in fifteen years) and Swansea City.

The results from the 5th round of this year’s FA Cup were as follows:

  • QPR 0 – 1 Watford*
  • Brighton* 2 – 1 Derby
  • AFC Wimbledon 0 – 1 Millwall*
  • Newport County 1 – 4 Manchester City*
  • Bristol City 0 – 1 Wolves*
  • Doncaster 0 – 2 Crystal Palace*
  • Swansea* 4 – 1 Brentford
  • Chelsea 0 – 2 Manchester United*
