Manchester United will be facing Fulham at Old Trafford in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

The Red Devils overcame West Ham in the fifth round of this domestic competition to secure their place in the last eight.

Here is the FA Cup quarter-final draw in full.

  • Manchester City vs Burnley
  • Manchester United vs Fulham
  • Brighton vs Grimsby
  • Sheffield United vs Blackburn

This is the fourth-straight consecutive home draw for Man United in the FA Cup this year.

They will host the Cottagers at the weekend of 18/19 March 2023.

The United supporters will be delighted that they have not been drawn against Man City. However, taking on high-flying Fulham won’t be an easy task as well. They comfortably knocked out Leeds United from the tournament last night.

Marco Silva’s men are currently sitting at the seventh spot in the Premier League table with 39 points. In fact, Fulham fans are already dreaming of European football for next season. 

When these two sides met the last time, it was Alejandro Garnacho’s last-gasp winner which helped Man United to secure the victory.

Fulham will be keen to take revenge for that tough loss but they have to do it at Old Trafford, which has been a fortress for United this season.

The Red Devils have lost just twice at the Theatre of Dreams all season. In the previous 19 home games, United registered a win in 17 games and drew the rest of the two.

Erik ten Hag will be hoping that his men can do a Wembley double this season, after conquering the Carabao Cup this past weekend.
