Chelsea’s FA Cup quarter-final tie confirmed

The date and kick-off time for our FA Cup sixth round tie against Sheffield United have been confirmed...

After battling past Barnsley last time out, Thomas Tuchel’s side will host the Blades at Stamford Bridge for a place in the last four. The FA have confirmed that the tie will be played on Sunday 21 March, with kick-off at 1.30pm and broadcast live on the BBC.

Our Premier League trip to Liverpool, originally scheduled for that weekend, will be rescheduled and a new date will be announced in due course.

The Blues recently took on Chris Wilder’s side at Bramall Lane in the league, coming out on top in a 2-1 win courtesy of goals from Mason Mount and Jorginho. The Yorkshiremen were also beaten 4-1 at the Bridge back in November, though they did record a win and a draw against us last term.

The full quarter-final line-up is as follows:

Saturday 20 March 
AFC Bournemouth v Southampton, 12.15pm – BT Sport 1
Everton v Manchester City, 5.30pm – BT Sport 1

Sunday 21 March
