Chelsea beat Wolves in the fifth round of the FA Cup, while Manchester United beat Blackburn to make it to the last eight of the competition.

Chelsea will host Manchester United in the quarterfinals of this season’s FA Cup, as the FA Cup draw decided Jose Mourinho will return to Stamford Bridge for the second time this season.

The match will take place the weekend of 10/11/12/13 March with the exact date and time yet to be announced.

This is definitely the biggest tie of the FA Cup so far this season, and the most exciting in the FA Cup quarterfinal draw.

The last time Jose Mourinho came with his Red Devils team to his former stomping ground, he left with a 4-0 defeat. Although his team are yet to lose since then, Chelsea will be ever willing to renew the favour yet again.

This is the 12th season we have been paired with Man United in this competition. The most recent was in 2012/13, also in the quarter-finals, when following a recovery from 2-0 down to draw at Old Trafford, we won the replay at the Bridge thanks to a Demba Ba goal.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
