When is the FA Cup quarter-final draw? Plus Chelsea, Man Utd ball numbers

The FA Cup fifth round is taking place this week, with the final four fixtures to be carried out over the next two days.

Four sides have already booked their place in the quarter-finals – and they all come from the Premier League.

Arsenal got the ball rolling on Monday night when they bounced back from their Europa League heartbreak against Olympiakos to win 2-0 away at League One outfit Portsmouth.

Chelsea produced a spirited 2-0 victory against Liverpool last night to reach the last eight, while Newcastle and Sheffield United also joined them by toppling West Brom and Reading respectively.

Replays are not played out in the FA Cup from the fifth round onwards, meaning all ties will go to extra-time and penalties if the scores remain level.

Of course, both the semi-finals and final are played at Wembley, so one more victory in the last eight will be enough to seal a day out at the national stadium.
