Chelsea landed the FA Cup draw that they didn’t want as they were paired up with holders Manchester United for the quarter finals. The clash will be at Stamford Bridge, where Chelsea smashed the Red Devils 4-0 earlier in the season when they played host to United in the Premier League. The Chelsea v Manchester United FA Cup tie is the big highlight clash of the final eight, but the Blues have drifted to a 4/1 price to get their hands on the silverware. It’s been even worse for the Red Devils though as they have drifted out to as big as a 7/1 shot at Bet365 to retain the FA Cup this season because of the draw against the Blues and having had to fight back from a goal down against Blackburn in the last round. Arsenal are 11/4 favourites to get their hands on the prize after having received another comfortable draw. After beating non-league side Sutton in the fifth round, their reward is a home fixture against non-league side Lincoln, who created history by being the first non-league side to reach the final eight of the FA Cup in over 100 years. The Imps stunned Burnley at Turf Moor on the weekend to set themselves up for this tie. Tottenham, who eased past Fulham 3-0 at Craven Cottage in their fifth round tie, will go at home for the quarter finals as they take on League One side Millwall and that will be the last ever FA Cup tie at White Hart Lane. Millwall managed to dump Leicester out of the competition at The Den on the weekend. The winner of the Huddersfield/Manchester City replay on March 1st, will go through to face Middlesbrough the Riverside in the quarter finals.
