FA Cup sixth-round draw: When are the quarter-finals, date, time, fixtures and more


The FA Cup fifth round is under way this week and by Thursday night we will know the eight teams through to the sixth round, as it is officially known, or quarter-finals.

Bournemouth were the first side to booked their spot in the sixth-round after seeing off Burnley on Tuesday evening.

The holders Arsenal are out, as are the Premier League champions Liverpool, so Manchester City, who play Swansea City away, are the favourites to win the competition, but there are plenty of big hitters still left in the running.

Here is everything you need to know ahead of the draw.
