FA Cup: Chelsea to face Middlesbrough in quarter-finals

Championship side Middlesbrough will welcome Chelsea to the Riverside Stadium in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Chelsea’s trip to the North East will be a repeat of the 1997 FA Cup final, which the Blues won 2-0 at Wembley.

Championship pair Forest and Huddersfield face each other on Monday in the final tie of the fifth round.

The games will played on the weekend of 19-20 March.
