FA Cup sixth-round draw: Who will Arsenal face?
By Randy Osae
The Football Association completed the draw of fixtures for the FA Cup’s quarter-finals on Sunday.
And presuming Arsenal defeat Cardiff City tomorrow to go on and get past Burnley in a delayed fifth-round tie (all at home), then up next in the sixth round of the competition will be against Sheffield United/Hull City where Phil Brown’s Tigers can fancy an edge after securing a replay at home to the Blades whom Arsenal thrashed 6-0 in the Carling Cup earlier this season.
That scenario could set up a revenging Arsenal vs Hull City fixture at the Emirates Stadium again.
An interesting factor though, is that Wenger’s men have met ALL four of the imminent/potential cup opponents before, this season.
FA Cup quarter-final draw:
Blackburn or Coventry v Chelsea
Swansea or Fulham v Manchester United
Cardiff/Arsenal or Burnley v Sheffield United or Hull City
Everton v West Ham or Middlesbrough
