In the FA Cup quarterfinal draws, all the big clubs will avoid each other- surprising no one! There are four members of the Premier League big six left alive in the competition: Manchester United, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea. The Red Devils and Blues have already had (and obviously won) their fifth round ties to advance to the round of eight.
Of the ten clubs remaining in the competition, seven are from the Premier League. Looking ahead at the next round of draws, the standout tie seems to be Chelsea vs Leicester City; a match-up of the last three league champions.
Chelsea won in 2016-17 and 2014-15, with the Foxes taking home the trophy in 2015-16.
