Manchester United and Chelsea are on an FA Cup collision course after being drawn against each other in the quarter-finals of the competition.

The Red Devils will have to beat Reading at Old Trafford tomorrow night to secure their place in the tie, whilst the Blues also need to do their part at Middlesbrough after seeing off Brentford at Stamford Bridge in the fourth round earlier today (Sunday).

The tie would be a replay of the 2007 final, when Didier Drogba’s solitary strike in extra-time won the day for the west Londoners at Wembley.

Manchester City’s reward for beating Championship Leeds United is another home tie, with Barnsley unlucky to draw the Premier League champions away after their victory at MK Dons in the last 16.

Wigan Athletic – victors against Huddersfield Town in the day’s late kick-off – have another away trip to look forward to, with either Everton or Oldham their opponents following the 2-2 draw between the Toffees and Latics at Boundary Park yesterday.

And, in the final tie out of the hat, Millwall host Blackburn Rovers at the New Den, meaning a second-tier team is guaranteed a place in the final four of this year's competition.
