We’re reaching the thick end of the FA Cup as the quarter finals roar into view. The remaining teams are set to find out their fate… but when does the draw for the last eight take place?

Premier League giants Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City are hoping to be involved but they must progress from the fifth round if their balls are set to be dropped into the pot.


Boreham Wood will hope to become the first non-league team since Lincoln City in 2016/17 to reach the last eight but they face a daunting trip to Goodison Park in the fifth round, while at least one EFL team is guaranteed a spot in the quarter finals as Nottingham Forest and Huddersfield are due to meet.
