FA Cup quarter-final draw details: Who Chelsea could face if they beat Barnsley


The draw for the FA Cup quarter-finals will take place on Thursday 11 February prior to Chelsea's fifth round clash against Barnsley at Oakwell.

Thomas Tuchel's side will hope to extend their unbeaten start to five games in all competitions under the German's tutelage when they travel to Yorkshire. 

The reward for the Blues if they win is a spot in the last eight of the FA Cup, 

On what it would mean to win the FA Cup, Tuchel said: "This would be huge, absolutely. The FA Cup is one of the most prestigious cups in the world, it is played at Wembley and even if you are a little boy in Germany with no Internet in those times, and no sports channels to watch every game like nowadays, you know the words FA Cup and Wembley.

"You know these words and you know that this is a big, big game to play in and a big goal to achieve. But you know me better now and the approach tomorrow is that this game is the most important game of this cup campaign.

"It is a decisive match and an elimination match. We all know very well that we can expect everything in a game of football. We have to go step-by-step but for sure we do everything to prepare to win this game and get to the next round."
