Full draw for FA Cup quarter-finals

Full draw for FA Cup quarter-finals:

Sheffield United or Middlesbrough v Cardiff City

Manchester United v Portsmouth

Bristol Rovers v West Brom

Barnsley v Chelsea

Matches to be played on the weekend of 8 and 9 March.

With two of the big four(Arsenal and Liverpool) knocked out at the weekend, the stage is set for a likely repeat of last years final with Chelsea and Manchester United in poll positions to make it to the final. A cursory look at the FA Cup Quater Finals Draw gives these two an edge.

Porthsmouth for one had an unimpressive qualification to the Quater Finals and unless the lift their game, Manchester united will be so glad to send them out of it.

Barnsley, haven shocked liverpool will not be taken for granted by Chelsea . The Semi Finals qualifiers may look like this; Manchester United, Chelsea, Bristol and Middlesborough.

If United and Chelsea are not drawn together in the Semis, we should expect a final cracker of the two. United may now have an opportunity to pay Chelsea FC back in their own coin. This time without a Mourinho on the sidelines.
