8:21 am on 21 February 2011

Manchester United must wait to find out whether they will face Premier League title rivals Arsenal or League One Leyton Orient in the FA Cup football quarter-finals after Orient held Arsenal to a 1-all draw on Monday morning.

United struggled past non-League Crawley Town 1-nil on Sunday while Orient scored a late equaliser through substitute Jonathan Tehoue to force a 1-all draw at Brisbane Road in their fifth-round tie against Arsenal.

The teams will replay the tie at the Emirates on March the 2nd.

Birmingham City, who meet Arsenal in the Carling Cup final next weekend, will face Bolton Wanderers who beat Fulham 1-nil at Craven Cottage earlier on Monday morning.

Stoke City, the only other club definitely through to the last eight, will play either West Ham United or Burnley who meet on Tuesday.

The winners of the delayed fifth-round ties between Manchester City and Aston Villa and Everton, who knocked out holders Chelsea, and Reading will meet each other, with either City or Villa at home.

City made sure of their place in the fifth round by crushing Notts County 5-nil also on Monday morning.

The quarter-finals will be played on March the 12th and 13th.
