Feb 17, 2013 8:44 PM GMT
Manchester United and Chelsea could meet in the FA Cup sixth round but still have work to do before a repeat of the 2006-07 final can occur.
The FA Cup holders convincingly beat Brentford 4-0 at Stamford Bridge on Sunday and face Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium on February 27, while United host Reading on Monday night at Old Trafford.
Oldham, the lowest ranked side left in the cup, have to find a way past Everton in their fifth round replay at Goodison Park after Matt Smith salvaged the tie at Boundary Park on Saturday evening, but will be rewarded with a home tie against Wigan should they do so.
Premier League champions Manchester City face Barnsley at the Etihad Stadium, while Millwall entertain Blackburn, who sensationally eliminated Arsenal on Saturday, at The Den.
All ties will be played on the weekend of 9 and 10 March.
FA Cup sixth-round draw:Oldham or Everton v Wigan; Manchester City v Barnsley; Manchester United or Reading v Middlesbrough or Chelsea; and Millwall v Blackburn.
