After eliminating Fulham earlier today at Craven Cottage thanks in part to a Harry Kane hat trick, Tottenham Hotspur have learned their fate in the FA Cup, and yet again, it’s a favorable draw. Spurs have pulled a home draw in the final step before Wembley against League One side Millwall.
Millwall reached the Quarterfinals on Saturday by dispatching Leicester City 1-0 with just ten men, continuing the tailspin that the current champions of England are in.
The Quarterfinals will be played the weekend of March 10-13 with the winners moving on to Wembley Stadium in April.
The rest of the draw features one colossal match as current league leaders Chelsea will host Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.
Arsenal travel to Sutton United tomorrow knowing that a victory would mean a home match against Lincoln City, but we can all safely bet that everyone that is not an Arsenal supporter will be pulling for Sutton United to pull off an upset to have a non-League matchup in the Quaterfinals.
You have to feel good about Spurs’ chances to reach Wembley. They have had a favorable draw the entire competition and this one is no different against a League One side that is currently 7th. Also it bears mentioning that there are going to be some matches rescheduled because of the deep run, so we’ll have those updates for you as soon as we know them.
Here’s the full draw of the Quarterfinal, with the home side listed first:
Tottenham Hotspur vs. Millwall
Chelsea vs. Manchester United
Middlesbrough vs. Manchester City / Huddersfield Town
Sutton United / Arsenal vs. Lincoln City
