FA Cup 2013 Quarterfinal Draw: Manchester United could host Chelsea

Dean Mouhtaropoulos

Manchester United and Chelsea could face each other in the quarterfinal of the FA Cup, provided they win their fifth round matches.

The FA Cup quarterfinal could feature one truly marquee tie, though it's yet to be determined. Manchester United and Chelsea could face each other in what would be the best tie of the round, but they have to win their fifth round matches first.

Manchester United and Reading are scheduled to play on Monday. Chelsea didn't get to play their fourth round tie until Saturday, and will take on Middlesborough in the fifth round mid-week. Everton let Oldham secure a dramatic stoppage time equalizer to force a replay, so they will meet again at Goodison Park to determine who faces Wigan.

The winners of the quarterfinal ties will advance to play at Wembley Stadium, which kind of takes away from the magic of the 'we're going to Wembley' thing. Obviously Wembley Stadium cost a whole crap-ton of money and games need to be played there to offset the cost, but semifinals at the venue of the final are just horrible.

Draw
