Manchester United to host Brighton in FA Cup quarter-finals

Manchester United will host Brighton in the FA Cup quarter-finals after beating Huddersfield on Saturday night.

United won 2-0 at the John Smith’s Stadium to set up a repeat of the 1983 final against the Seagulls, who are through to the last eight for the first time since 1986.

The teams drew 2-2 in that Wembley final 35 years ago, before United won the replay 4-0.

Last year’s beaten finalists Chelsea won their tie on Friday night and the Blues now face a tricky last-eight trip to Leicester.

Manchester City are still chasing a remarkable quadruple and, if they beat League One high flyers Wigan on Monday, the Premier League leaders host Southampton in the last eight.

The Saints beat West Brom 2-1 on Saturday to secure a quarter final berth for the first time since 2005.

Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea fought out a 0-0 draw on Saturday and whoever prevails in the replay will entertain the winners of Sunday’s Rochdale-Tottenham tie.

FA Cup quarter-final draw:

Sheffield Wednesday or Swansea v Rochdale or Tottenham

Manchester United v Brighton

Leicester v Chelsea

Wigan or Manchester City v Southampton

Ties to be played over the weekend of March 16-19.
