The draw for the Sixth Round Proper of this season's FA Cup was made at Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon as the competition enters its quarter final stage. With former Newcastle United captain Robert Lee and his son Olly, who plays for Birmingham City, making the draw, the first tie to come out saw Premier League high-fliers Arsenal paired with Roberto Martinez's Everton following both clubs' victories over Liverpool and Swansea City respectively. And Sunderland boss Gus Poyet might be heading back to one of his former clubs with the Black Cats drawn out to face either Brighton & Hove Albion or Hull City, with those clubs meeting on Monday night. There will definitely be one team from outside the Premier League heading to Wembley for the Semi-Finals too and the potential for a South Yorkshire derby, with the third tie seeing Sheffield United take on either Sheffield Wednesday or Charlton Athletic. The final match drawn out of the hat didn't disappoint either, as Manchester City have the chance to avenge their defeat in The Final against Wigan Athletic from last season with a home tie against the Latics. Games will take place over the weekend of 8 and 9 March. The Draw 1 Arsenal v Everton 2 Brighton & Hove Albion or Hull City v Sunderland 3 Sheffield United v Sheffield Wednesday or Charlton Athletic 4 Manchester City v Wigan Athletic
