FA Cup quarter-final draw: Holders Man City face Newcastle

The Emirates FA Cup quarter-final draw has been made with the remaining teams learning their opponents for the next round.

Manchester City’s defence of the competition continued with a 6-2 win over Luton on Tuesday, a fixture that saw Erling Haaland score five times. Pep Guardiola’s side’s reward is a home clash with Newcastle, who eliminated the Citizens from the League Cup earlier in the campaign.

There’s the potential of a Manchester United vs Liverpool FA Cup tie in the last eight, should both teams come through their fifth-round ties with Nottingham Forest and Southampton respectively on Wednesday evening.

 

Brighton, who are the only remaining team in the competition who have not won the FA Cup, will host the lowest-ranked team, Coventry City, in the quarter-finals, should they beat Wolves in the fifth round this evening.

The final tie will see Chelsea or Leeds will host Championship leaders Leicester City. The quarter-final fixtures will be played on the weekend of March 16/17.

FA Cup quarter-final draw in full:
