Man United, Man City kept apart in FA Cup quarter-final draw

Manchester City and Manchester United have been kept apart in the FA Cup quarter-final draw.

City are the favourites to win the competition after breezing past Newport in the last round, and will travel to Swansea for a place in the semi-finals.

Pep Guardiola will therefore still be fielded questions about winning the Quadruple until the end of time, with City top of the Premier League, in the League Cup final, in the Champions League last 16 and now facing a favourable FA Cup draw against one of the two remaining lower-league sides.

The other, Millwall, will host Brighton in the hope of emulating their semi-final place in 2013, or run to the final in 2004.

They lost that final 15 years ago to United, who travel to Wolves after beating Chelsea 2-0 on Monday.

In the final game, Watford and Crystal Palace will keep their mascot-related rivalry simmering at Vicarage Road.
