Leicester City coasted through the fifth round of the FA Cup on Friday, with a deceptively one sided 1-0 over Sheffield United. The ending was certainly tenser than the 4-1 win over the Blades in the league cup, but the Foxes dominated throughout.

Two fifth round ties are still to play, but the draw for the quarter-final was made today, pitting Leicester against Chelsea.

Chelsea breezed through the last round with a 4-0 win over Hull City.

With Manchester United and City still in the competition, it’s not quite the hardest draw we could've had, but it’s pretty close. Of course, if we’re to win the cup we’ll need to beat these teams eventually, and with the Manchester teams and Tottenham all very fortuitously avoiding each other, we may need to most of them eventually, so we’ll start with Chelsea.

The game will take place on the 16-19th March. The Foxes were scheduled to play Arsenal that weekend, but that game has now been postponed
