Everton’s reward for coming through a gruelling FA Cup fifth round against Tottenham is a visit from Manchester City in the quarter-final, while United travel to Leicester.
Holders Arsenal were dumped out of the tournament in the previous round meaning we’ll have a new champion in what is the oldest cup competition in football.
Pep Guardiola’s City, the competition favourites, reached the last eight with a 3-1 win at Swansea on Wednesday while the Toffees went through with a memorable 5-4 defeat of Tottenham after extra time.
City, who have won their last 15 games in all competitions in a record-breaking run for an English top-flight side, are also due to face the Merseysiders in a rearranged Premier League game next week.
It is a game in which there could be some needle after Guardiola criticised Everton’s response to the postponing of their scheduled match in December when five City players tested positive for COVID-19.
In another mouthwatering tie, United, currently second in the Premier League, were handed a trip to third-placed Leicester.
The two sides fought out a 2-2 draw when they last met on Boxing Day.
Southampton’s reward for their victory over Wolves on Thursday was an away trip along the south coast to Championship side Bournemouth.
The final tie saw the winners of Thursday’s late game between Barnsley and Chelsea drawn at home to Sheffield United.
The ties are scheduled to take place over the weekend of March 20-21.
