Manchester United are headed to Leicester City as both teams are set to meet in the Emirates FA Cup quarter-finals after the fifth round draw was announced this week.

The quarter-final ties will be played on Saturday 20 or Sunday 21 March. The exact date will be determined after the FA moves the penciled in Premier League matchup against Crystal Palace that weekend.

United have only played the Foxes two times in the FA Cup with United winning both matchups.

The first matchup and most memorable was the 1963 final at Wembley Stadium. United under Matt Busby beat Leicester 3-1, with goals from Denis Law and David Herd (2), to secure the club’s first trophy since the Munich Air Disaster.
