Manchester United will host Brighton in the FA Cup quarter-finals after beating Huddersfield on Saturday night.

United won 2-0 at the John Smith's Stadium to set up a repeat of the 1983 final against the Seagulls, who are through to the last eight for the first time since 1986.

The teams drew 2-2 in that Wembley final 35 years ago, before United won the replay 4-0.

The well-fancied teams have avoided each other in the quarter-final draw, although last year's beaten finalists Chelsea face a tricky trip to Leicester after both sides won their ties on Friday night.

League One high flyers Wigan, who stunned Manchester City 1-0 in the fifth round, host Southampton in the last eight.

The Saints beat West Brom 2-1 on Saturday to secure a quarter final berth for the first time since 2005.

Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea fought out a 0-0 draw on Saturday and whoever prevails in the replay will entertain the winners of Sunday's Rochdale-Tottenham tie.
