Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United avoided each other in the draw for the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Chelsea, who won the FA Cup when Hiddink was last in charge in 2009, secured their progress with a 5-1 win over a much-changed Manchester City side at Stamford Bridge on Sunday but face a difficult test at Everton, who beat Bournemouth on Saturday.

Arsenal, looking to win the competition for the third year in succession, will have a home game against Watford, who beat Leeds United, if they come through a replay against Hull City, while Manchester United will host West Ham, who won 5-1 at Blackburn Rovers, if they get past Shrewsbury at the New Meadow on Monday night.

Reading’s reward for beating West Brom is a home game against Crystal Palace, who progressed courtesy of a 1-0 win at Tottenham.


Full draw

Reading v Crystal Palace
Everton v Chelsea
Arsenal/Hull City v Watford
Shrewsbury/Manchester United v West Ham.

The games will be played on the weekend of March 11-14.
