English Premiership

Chelsea await either City or Stoke

LONDON, February 15 – FA Cup holders Chelsea have been handed a home quarter-final against either Manchester City or Stoke in Sunday's draw.Carlo Ancelotti’s side defeated Championship club Cardiff 4-1 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and will have to wait until next week’s replay at the Britannia Stadium to discover if City or Stoke will travel to west London.

If Roberto Mancini’s side get through it would mean a potentially uncomfortable meeting between Chelsea captain John Terry and City left-back Wayne Bridge.

Terry is alleged to have had an affair with the ex-girlfriend of former Chelsea team-mate Bridge and fall-out from the scandal has already cost the Chelsea star the England captaincy.

Crystal Palace, who were just minutes away from defeating Aston Villa before being held to a 2-2 draw at Selhurst Park, would face a fellow Championship side in Reading or West Brom if they can win their replay at Villa Park.

Bolton or Tottenham, who shared a 1-1 draw at the Reebok Stadium on Sunday, will travel to Fulham, while troubled Portsmouth host Birmingham.

Draw for the English FA Cup quarter-finals made on Sunday:

Chelsea v Manchester City or Stoke

Fulham v Bolton or Tottenham
