FA Cup quarter-final draw: Arsenal handed potential United clash
Arsenal will face Manchester United in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup if they can overcome Leyton Orient in a fifth round replay.
Arsene Wenger’s men were stunned by a late Orient equaliser yesterday and now have the unwelcome addition of an extra fixture to their already busy schedule.
Elsewhere in the draw, the winner of tonight’s West Ham v Burnley clash will travel to Stoke, while either Man City or Aston Villa will host Everton or Reading, David Moyes’ Toffees having seen off Chelsea in a weekend penalty shootout. Bolton defeated Fulham on Sunday and their reward is a trip to face fellow Premier League side Birmingham.
Bet 365 make Man Utd the 15/8 favourites to life the trophy, with Arsenal next in the betting at 7/2. Leyton Orient, the lowest-ranked team left in this year’s competition, are available at 500/1 to win the Cup for the first time.
