FA Cup draw: Chelsea travel to Everton


Everton will play Chelsea at Goodison Park in the pick of the FA Cup sixth round ties.

Chelsea, 5-1 conquerors of Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, beat Everton in the 2009 FA Cup final to secure Guus Hiddink's only piece of silverware in his first spell at the club, and the Dutchman is looking forward to another cup tie against the Toffees.

"It was a long time ago, but the past is the past. Everton at their home is difficult of course, but we hope to maintain our flow in the FA Cup," he told BBC Sport.

Reading's reward for the 3-1 fifth-round victory over West Brom at the Madejski Stadium is another home tie against a Premier League club, with the 2015 semi-finalists taking on their former manager Alan Pardew and his Crystal Palace side.

Palace beat Tottenham 1-0 at White Hart Lane thanks to Martin Kelly's first goal since November 2011.

The winners of the replay between FA Cup holders Arsenal and Hull City will play Watford at home, while West Ham's reward for beating Blackburn Rovers 5-1 on Sunday is a visit to either Manchester United or Shrewsbury.

The ties will be played between Friday 11 March and Monday 14 March.
