The big teams remaining in the FA Cup were kept apart during the sixth round draw of the competition at Wembley.

Both Merseyside teams were handed home draws - providing Liverpool can overcome Brighton & Hove Albion in the final match of the fifth round - whilst Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are also at home if they can win their replays.

Kenny Dalglish's Reds were first out of the hat, and either they or the Seagulls will host Stoke City after the Potters overcame Crawley Town in Sunday's early kick-off.

Chelsea or Birmingham were next out of the hat, and the winner of their replay will play Leicester City at home, as Nigel Pearson's side weren't rewarded with a home tie after victory at Norwich City yesterday.

Tottenham Hotspur, the highest ranked side left in the competition, will play host to Bolton Wanderers in the quarter-final if they can overcome Stevenage in a replay. The League One side are the lowest ranked team still in the hat, and were well worth the draw against Harry Redknapp's men at the Lamex Stadium.

Finally, Sunderland will travel to Goodison Park to face Everton after both teams won home matchs in the fifth round. Martin O'Neill's side took the scalp of Arsenal, whilst the Toffees avoided an upset against Blackpool.
