Manchester City host Wigan in FA Cup quarter-finals

16 February 2014 16:47

Manchester City will host Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup quarter-finals in a repeat of last season's final.

Ben Watson scored a late winner as the DW Stadium outfit claimed a shock Wembley victory to win the trophy on that occasion in May and Wigan have already knocked out two Premier League opponents in this season's tournament.

However, Uwe Rosler's men - now playing in the second tier of English football - were thumped 5-0 at the Etihad Stadium in the third round of this year's League Cup.

City have reached the final of that competition, with the visit of Wigan coming just a week after their Wembley date with Sunderland.

Arsenal come up against a second Merseyside opponent in as many rounds as they welcome Everton to the Emirates Stadium, having triumphed 2-1 over Liverpool to reach this stage.

Everton have not beaten the London club in any competition since 2007, but Roberto Martinez is bidding to become the first manager to win consecutive FA Cup titles with different clubs, so will not be short of motivation to progress.

There is guaranteed to be a Football League club in the semi-finals for a second consecutive season as Sheffield United, who pulled off a dramatic late comeback against Nottingham Forest in the fifth round on Sunday, face off against local rivals Sheffield Wednesday or Charlton Athletic at Bramall Lane.

There has not been a Sheffield derby in the FA Cup since the 1993 semi-finals, when Mark Bright scored an extra-time winner to set up a final meeting with Arsenal, who eventually lifted the trophy.

In the remaining last-eight tie, Sunderland head coach Gus Poyet will be heading back to former club Brighton and Hove Albion if Oscar Garcia's men beat Hull City on Monday.

However, if it is Hull who progress, Steve Bruce will be welcoming his former charges to the KC Stadium.

The ties will be played on the weekend of March 8/9. The draw in full:

Arsenal v Everton

Brighton and Hove Albion or Hull City v Sunderland

Sheffield United v Sheffield Wednesday or Charlton Athletic

Manchester City v Wigan Athletic
