There will not be an FA Cup quarter-final Manchester derby, though United and City could still meet later in the competition.
  • Man Utd and Man City both at home
  • Man City get to face ex-player Kompany
  • Brighton get favourable match-up

WHAT HAPPENED? The Manchester teams have been kept apart - through their respective fanbases may be pleased that such a tough potential game is delayed until later in the tournament. City may have the most interesting storyline of the round as defender Vincent Kompany, now managing Burnley, will return to the Etihad Stadium. Meanwhile, Brighton will host League Two Grimsby Town and Sheffield United will host Blackburn in an all-Championship affair.

Below are the results of the FA Cup draw on Wednesday...
