The line-up for the last eight of the Emirates FA Cup was drawn out on Wednesday

Wednesday 04 Mar 2020
The Emirates FA Cup quarter final draw was made on Wednesday evening

The draw for the Emirates FA Cup quarter final will see holders Manchester City on the road again, with a trip to face Newcastle United.

Elsewhere, Sheffield United will host Arsenal and Leicester City will have home advantage to play against Chelsea with places in the semi-finals at Wembley Stadium on offer for the winners.

Norwich City's penalty shootout victory over Spurs after extra time at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium means they'll be at home to Manchester United who knocked out Derby County.

The draw was made on Wednesday evening at Hillsborough, with former England, Sheffield Wednesday and Spurs star Chris Waddle and ex-Arsenal defender Martin Keown pulling the balls out of the hat.

That followed on from the fifth round tie between Sheffield Wednesday and Manchester City which was shown live on BBC One and BBC iPlayer and saw City progress into the last eight courtesy of Sergio Aguero's second-half goal.

The Draw

1 Sheffield United v Arsenal
2 Newcastle United v Manchester City
3 Norwich City v Manchester United
4 Leicester City v Chelsea
