    Under new rules brought in this season to alleviate fixture congestion, there will be no replays from the fifth round onwards, with any draws being settled on the day with extra-time and then, if needed, penalties.

    That makes being drawn at home a little extra advantage, as you know that the tie will be settled in front of your crowd no matter what.

    The rule was brought in a year earlier than expected after being agreed by the Professional Game Board in order to reduce the amount of fixtures at this time of year.

    It is believed that the rule was brought in specifically to help teams who are also competing in European competition - but half of them have already been knocked out of this year’s tournament, with another guaranteed to drop out at this stage after Chelsea host Man United.
