Arsenal’s reward for beating Portsmouth on Monday night is an FA Cup quarter-final showdown with Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
The matches are due to be played between 20-23 March. If the scheduling from recent rounds is anything to go by, you can be sure we’ll be playing on the Monday night.
The Gunners are chasing a 14th success in the competition, the trophy being the last chance of silverware this season.
The sides have met twice already this season, with the Blades winning 1-0 win at home, with a 1-1 draw at the Emirates in January.
The last time we met in the cup was in 2005 when we went through on penalties in a replay, on our way to beating Man Utd in the final that year.
Is it an omen? No, it’s just two teams drawn against each other in the FA Cup.
The draw also means our away game at Southampton will have to be rescheduled for later in the season. It was meant to take place on March 22nd, but was postponed because of our win over Portsmouth on Monday.
