Confirmed: Our Emirates FA Cup sixth-round details

Manchester United will travel to Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Emirates FA Cup sixth-round stage.

The draw was made following the Reds' comprehensive 2-0 victory against Chelsea on Monday, when headers from Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba secured our spot in the last eight of the competition for the fifth season in a row.

The superb result was a first victory at Stamford Bridge for seven years, after we conceded an injury-time equaliser in this season's 2-2 draw in the league.

It was confirmed on Wednesday evening that the tie will take place on Saturday 16 March at 19:55 GMT, and will be broadcast live in the UK on BBC One. 

As a result, the previously arranged Premier League fixture against Manchester City will now be played at a later date.

Much-fancied Wolves will be a tough nut to crack at Molineux after beating Liverpool in round three.

The draw was made by former Reds favourite Darren Fletcher and Wayne Bridge, who played for the likes of Southampton, Chelsea and Manchester City during his 16-year playing career.

Last year, we eliminated Brighton & Hove Albion in the quarter-finals, en route to Wembley, where we were beaten by Chelsea in the final.

As with the last round, the quarter-final stage will not include replays, as any drawn game will go straight to extra-time and then penalties, if required. VAR will also be used during the tie.
