We're not going to see a Chelsea vs. Spurs showdown just yet, but there's still compelling action in the FA Cup quarterfinals, headlined by Sunderland's visit to Goodison Park.

The draw is in for the 2012 FA Cup quarterfinals. With eleven teams (seven from the Premier League, three from the nPower Championship and one from League One) still in the mix, we're not entirely sure who'll end up where, but the general shape is confirmed.

The supposed big guns, none of whom have secured advancement out of the fifth round as of yet, will avoid an in-form Sunderland team that's just seen off Arsenal. Instead, the Black Cats will travel to Goodison Park to play Everton in what's surely the pick of the quarterfinal ties. If Liverpool can advance, they'll get Stoke City at home, while Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are looking at Leicester City and Bolton Wanderers respectively. There's still time for a few upsets in the fifth round, of course...

Liverpool or Brighton & Hove Albion vs. Stoke City

Chelsea or Birmingham City vs. Leicester City

Stevenage or Tottenham Hotspur vs. Bolton Wanderers

Everton vs. Sunderland
