United discover potential FA Cup quarter-final opponents
Manchester United will face Norwich City in the Emirates FA Cup quarter-final, if we get past Derby County tomorrow (Thursday).
The tie will take place at Carrow Road on the weekend of Saturday 21 March, with an exact date and time yet to be confirmed.
Daniel Farke’s side knocked out Tottenham Hotspur on penalties in the fifth round on Wednesday, after a 1-1 draw.
Jan Vertonghen gave Spurs, playing at home, the lead, but Josip Drmic’s late equaliser forced extra time, during which the sides could not be separated.
Tim Krul was the hero for the visitors, saving efforts from Troy Parrott and Gedson Fernandes in the shoot-out to secure his side a first berth in the last eight for 28 years.
The other three ties are confirmed as being all-Premier League clashes, with Leicester City hosting Chelsea in the pick of the bunch. Holders Manchester City travel to Newcastle, while Sheffield United go up against Arsenal at Bramall Lane.
