Monday 18 Feb 2019
The sixth round draw was made at Stamford Bridge on Monday night

Manchester City face another trip to Wales after they were pitched against Swansea City in the Emirates FA Cup quarter final draw.

Phil Foden scored twice to help Pep Guardiola’s side see off Newport County on Saturday night – and the Citizens will head back down south for next month’s last-eight tie against the Swans, who themselves romped to a 4-1 win over Brentford.

Manchester United were drawn away from home for the third round in succession with Molineux their next destination following victories at Emirates Stadium and Stamford Bridge.

2004 finalists Millwall will entertain Chris Hughton’s Brighton & Hove Albion and Crystal Palace face a trip to fellow Premier League side Watford.

The draw was conducted by 2004 FA Cup winner Darren Fletcher and Wayne Bridge, who lifted the famous trophy with Chelsea in 2007.

The quarter finals are scheduled to take place between Friday 15 March and Monday 18 March.

Winning clubs will receive £720,000 after The FA doubled the prize fund at the beginning of the season.

Quarter final draw:

1 Swansea City v Manchester City
2 Watford v Crystal Palace
3 Wolverhampton Wanderers v Manchester United
4 Millwall v Brighton & Hove Albion
