Manchester United are presented with a mouth-watering tie against Arsenal at Old Trafford in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

Louis van Gaal’s men came from behind to beat Simon Grayson’s men 3-1 at Deepdale and as reward set up a date with Arsenal at home in the next round.

United, who defeated Arsenal 2-1 early in the season, emerged victorious against the Gunners last time when the two sides met in the FA Cup. Goals from Fabio and Wayne Rooney saw United winning the quarter final tie 2-0 at Old Trafford in 2011.

Liverpool are presented a golden opportunity to book their tickets for Wembley after the Reds being drawn with Championship side Blackburn Rovers.

The Reds who are now bookies favourite to lift the club will face Rovers on the weekend of March 7/8 at Anfield.

The final takes place on May 30 – Steven Gerrard’s 35th birthday – and should Liverpool make it to that stage, it could be the final match for the long serving Reds skipper.

Last time Liverpool faced Blackburn, the Reds emerged victorious 3-2 at Ewood Park where Andy Carroll scored a last gasp winner in April 2012.
