Leicester City have been handed a second-consecutive Premier League match-up in the FA Cup, with Manchester United set to travel to the King Power Stadium in the quarter-finals. 

With the draw being completed on Thursday evening, the matches are set to be played across the week of March 20th.

Another home draw for the Foxes

It is the second season in a row that the Foxes have made the quarter-finals of the competition having fallen to Chelsea at home last season. 

Thus far, they have progressed past the likes of Stoke City, Brentford and Brighton & Hove Albion in this season's edition. It took a late Kelechi Iheanacho goal on Wednesday evening for the Foxes to edge past the Seagulls and book their place in the last-eight

What will be daunting for Leicester though is their recent record in the FA Cup. They have not managed to progress to the semi-finals in 40 years with their last appearance in the final four being a 2-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur during the 1981/82 season.

Renewed rivalries with Red Devils

One aspect that the Foxes will of course be looking forward to is getting one over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Red Devils. Having been rivals for a UEFA Champions League position last season, it was the Manchester outfit who ended up being successful, just pipping the East-Midlanders on the final day of the campaign.

The two sides have already met once throughout the current campaign, with that prior meeting also taking place at the King Power Stadium. 

On that day, Marcus Rashford opened the scoring midway through the first-half before Harvey Barnes equalised with a wonderful strike. It looked had though the Red Devils had claimed victory late on through Bruno Fernandes but Jamie Vardy forced an own goal from Axel Tuanzebe to see the points shared.
