Jose Mourinho will have to get past former club Chelsea if FA Cup holders Manchester United are to keep their hopes of retaining the trophy alive following the quarter-final draw on Sunday.

Giant-killers Lincoln -- the first non-league side into the last-eight in over a century after beating Premier League side Burnley on Saturday -- could have a lucrative trip to Arsenal should the Gunners beat another non-league side Sutton on Monday.

Sean Raggett of Lincoln City (obscure) celebrates scoring his sides first goal with his Lincoln City team mates during The Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round match between Burnley and Lincoln City at Turf Moor on February 18, 2017 in Burnley, England.

Arsenal's fellow north London side Tottenham will host another giant-killer in Millwall, who ousted ailing champions Leicester from the competition on Saturday despite being down to 10 men.

The other quarter-final pitches struggling Premier League outfit Middlesbrough at home to the winner of the replay between Championship high-fliers Huddersfield and Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.

'Boro manager Aitor Karanka crossed swords with Guardiola when the former was Real Madrid assistant manager and the latter in charge of Barcelona.
