Manchester City will take on FA Cup holders Wigan as the quarter-final draw threw up a rematch of last year’s final.

Former City favourite Uwe Rosler will take his Latics side to the Etihad Stadium where Manuel Pellegrini’s side saw off Chelsea 2-0 on Saturday, with Wigan hoping to claim another top-flight scalp after seeing off Cardiff in the fifth round.

Arsenal will host Everton in the next round after their 2-1 win over Liverpool at Emirates Stadium. Everton beat Swansea City 3-1 in Sunday’s first game.

Sheffield United’s 3-1 win over Nottingham Forest on Sunday means they could met local rivals Sheffield Wednesday, whose match against Charlton was postponed this weekend.

Gus Poyet may make a return to his old stomping ground after his Sunderland side were drawn away to the winners of Monday’s match between his former side Brighton and Hull City.
