After battling past Barnsley last time out, Thomas Tuchel’s side will host the Blades at Stamford Bridge for a place in the last four. The FA have confirmed that the tie will be played on Sunday 21 March, with kick-off at 1.30pm and broadcast live on the BBC.
Our Premier League trip to Liverpool, originally scheduled for that weekend, will be rescheduled and a new date will be announced in due course.
The Blues recently took on Chris Wilder’s side at Bramall Lane in the league, coming out on top in a 2-1 win courtesy of goals from Mason Mount and Jorginho. The Yorkshiremen were also beaten 4-1 at the Bridge back in November, though they did record a win and a draw against us last term.
The full quarter-final line-up is as follows:
Saturday 20 March
AFC Bournemouth v Southampton, 12.15pm – BT Sport 1
Everton v Manchester City, 5.30pm – BT Sport 1
Sunday 21 March
