The FA Cup quarter-final draw in full:

Sheffield Wednesday or Swansea City vs Rochdale or Tottenham Hotspur

Leicester City vs Chelsea

Manchester United vs Brighton and Hove Albion

Wigan Athletic or Manchester City vs Southampton

Not the most mouth-watering draw, and you would expect the so called 'bigger clubs' to secure their passage into the last four of the competition, as is seemingly always the way these days.

That's all from IB Times UK. Have a very good evening.

20:06

Wigan or Manchester City pitted at home. They will face the struggling Saints, who beat West Bromwich Albion.

20:06

Leicester drawn at home. They will host Chelsea, who romped to victory over Hull City on Friday.

20:05

Manchester United the second home team. They face... Brighton and Hove Albion. A repeat for the 1983 FA Cup final.

20:05

Sheffield Wednesday or Swansea out first. They'll play Rochdale or Tottenham, who play tomorrow.

20:04

The balls are now in the pot. Here we go...

20:02

We have lift-off!

The quarter-final draw will begin in a matter of moments. Shay Given and Michael Owen will have the all-important role of drawing the balls out.

20:01

While we wait for the draw - is it even happening tonight? - here is the lowdown of the results from today's fifth round fixtures.

Championship outfit Sheffield Wednesday stifled Swansea City to a 0-0 draw at lunchtime, West Brom's week got even worse as they slumped to a 2-1 defeat by Southampton, Brighton made light work of Coventry and Manchester United inched past Huddersfield Town.

19:54

Bit of a delay for this evening's draw, which is bizarrely taking place this evening, with little notice given to anyone.

It was due to take place at 7:45pm, but there are no signs of it taking place imminently as we close in on eight o'clock.

Bit of a mess, this.

19:47

Will we see a Manchester derby in the final eight?

Manchester City still have to get past Wigan Athletic, who have already dumped Bournemouth and West Ham United out of this year's competition, but Manchester United are through after beating Huddersfield Town thanks in no small part to Romelu Lukaku, who plundered a delightful brace.

19:42

The ball numbers for tonight's draw are as follows:

1 - Sheffield Wednesday or Swansea City
2 - Southampton
3 - Chelsea
4 - Leicester City
5 - Manchester United
6 - Rochdale or Tottenham Hotspur
7 - Brighton and Hove Albion.
8 - Wigan or Manchester City

Good evening and welcome to IB Times UK's live coverage of the FA Cup quarter-final draw.

Two fifth round matches are still to be played but Manchester United, Chelsea, Southampton, Brighton and Leicester City have all booked their places in the last eight and will be waiting with baited breath to see who stands between them and Wembley.
