United could face Gunners in FA Cup quarter-finals

MANCHESTER United could face Arsenal in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup following the draw today.

None of the potential four matches have actually been finalised as yet - with Leyton Orient’s match against the Gunners kicking off after the draw and a number of fifth round matches still to be played.

But the Old Trafford clash is the stand-out pick of the round with Everton’s reward for knocking out holders Chelsea being another daunting away match at either Manchester City or Aston Villa, if they first beat Reading.

The full draw is: Stoke City v West Ham or Burnley; Manchester City or Aston Villa v Everton or Reading; Birmingham City v Fulham or Bolton; Manchester United v Leyton Orient or Arsenal.
