FA Cup QF draw: Man Utd travel to Wolves, while Millwall host Brighton

FA Cup 2019

Manchester United’s victory over Chelsea earned them a tricky trip to face Wolves away from home in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

United’s visit to Molineux is the pick of the ties for the quarter-finals, which will also pit Championship side Millwall against Brighton at the Den.

Millwall will be delighted at being drawn at home, where they have already defeated Premier League opposition in the shape of Everton this season.

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, who beat Newport County to reach this stage of the competition, have been handed another favourable draw as they continue to push for titles in all four competitions this season.

City will return to Wales to face Graham Potter’s Swansea City, who are currently 13th in the Championship.

The quarter-finals will take place on the weekend of March 16, with the winning clubs set to receive £720,000 in prize money.

The final tie of the round is an all-Premier League affair as Watford meet Crystal Palace at Vicarage Road. It is a winnable tie for Palace, who are on a missing to help manager Roy Hodgson lift his first ever silverware in England.

Hodgson became the oldest Premier League manager in history on Sunday after passing Sir Bobby Robson’s record, taking charge of their FA Cup tie at Doncaster at the age of 71 years and 192 days.

Though Hodgson has won eight league titles during a coaching career spanning over four decades, he has never lifted a trophy in England, with the Europa League final in 2010 at Fulham the furthest he has progressed in his native country.

Scott Dann, the Palace defender, has admitted Hodgson is desperate to make an impression in the cup this season.

“He’s done a great job since he came into the football club,” Dann said. “He might be the oldest manager but is still driven. He will be thinking the same as we are, that we are a game away from Wembley.

“Every competition he plays in, he’s a winner and wants to win. You can see that with every round, we’re fielding a strong side and played against lower league opposition a couple of times now and fielded a strong side and every time we play in this competition he is pushing for us to get through.”

FA Cup quarter-final draw

  • Swansea City vs Manchester City
  • Watford vs Crystal Palace
  • Wolves vs Manchester United
  • Millwall vs Brighton

A reminder that all these ties will be played on the weekend of March 15-17.
