FA Cup quarter-final draw: Manchester United to play Brighton

FA Cup 5th-Round Preview: Manchester United, Manchester City And Chelsea

But Claude Puel's men will not have it quite so easy in the next round when they welcome Chelsea, who will be looking to secure silverware at the end of a disappointing league season.

Brighton knocked out League Two side Coventry on Saturday with a 3-1 win, but face a tough task at Old Trafford.

Wigan, second in League One, play Manchester City on Monday (19:55 GMT).

Each of the favourites left in the FA Cup have avoided one another in the draw for the quarter-finals. The chances of a non- Premier League club winning the trophy are now just 0.6 per cent.

European qualification is still a possibility for Leicester and it could be easier to cap a successful season in the league than in the FA Cup.

One of the more famous cup runs was orchestrated by John Duncan's Chesterfield, who were inches away from reaching the final after they were beaten in the semis by Middlesbrough after having a goal disallowed in extra-time of their first meeting.

The home side have beaten Bolton and Birmingham in previous rounds, although they did need a replay to see-off the Blues.

It was a similar story in the fourth round, with Spurs needing to win a Wembley replay before finally seeing off fourth-tier Newport County.

Manchester United heads into this game on the back of a shock 1-0 defeat at Newcastle last time out in the Premier League. A year later Stoke beat Crawley 2-0 at the same stage.

Two goals from Romelu Lukaku gave Jose Mourinho's side a 2-0 victory at Huddersfield in the fifth round on Saturday.
