Sheffield United could face city rivals Sheffield Wednesday in FA Cup

eNewsletter
Sunday's FA Cup draw threw up some great ties. None more so than possibly a Sheffield derby if Wednesday oust Charlton after United saw off Nottingham Forest 3-1. Nigel Clough's League One strugglers hit two late goals to secure a 3-1 win over Forest

FA Cup holders Wigan have been drawn away at Manchester City for a quarter-final tie which is a repeat of last season's Wembley final.

Sunday's draw presents the opportunity for Premier League title challengers City to gain revenge on Wigan for a shock 1-0 defeat in last May's showpiece.

City were overwhelming favourites to beat the Latics, then under the guidance of now Everton boss Roberto Martinez, but were undone by Ben Watson's last-gasp winner.

However, there is now a division between the two clubs as Wigan were relegated from the top flight shortly after their Wembley triumph.

The draw also means Latics boss Uwe Rosler will return to City, whom he represented with distinction between 1994 and 1998, for the first time in his managerial career.

Everton, now managed by Roberto Martinez who steered Wigan to glory last season will visit Liverpool in an all-Merseyside match if the Reds beat Arsenal in their fifth-round game.

Sunderland travel to either Brighton or Hull, which could mean a south coast return for Black Cats boss Gus Poyet.

The four ties are scheduled to be played on 8-9 March.
