Manchester United or Preston to face Arsenal in FA Cup quarter-finals

Arsenal will travel to Old Trafford to play Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-finals if Louis van Gaal‘s side can beat Preston North End this evening.

Both Arsenal and Man United are looking to become the first team to win the Cup for a twelfth time.

England manager Roy Hodgson made the draw at Deepdale ahead of tonight’s final fifth round tie and there was a roar at the ground when Arsenal were pulled out the hat.

Liverpool will host Blackburn Rovers in the sixth round, Bradford City will play another home game against Reading, while local rivals Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion will face each other.

It is a tough draw for United but at least the club can play in front of their home fans.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will be looking for revenge after United beat his side 2-1 at the Emirates earlier this season.

The tie will be played around the weekend of 7th/8th March.
