We're down to just eight clubs remaining in this season's FA Cup and along with Manchester United winning the final fifth-round tie this evening, the quarter-final draw has also been made. Mike Norman has the details...
"The 1-3 Correct Score was matched at 46.045/1 In-Play, and it means that Man Utd now trade as 3.814/5 second favourites in the FA Cup winner market, just ahead of their quarter-final opponents Arsenal, 4.3100/30."
Manchester United will meet Arsenal at Old Trafford in the FA Cup quarter-final after they came from a goal down to beat Preston 1-3 at Deepdale tonight.
Following a dull goalless first half the game sprung into life when Scott Laird fired the home side in front just after the re-start - the 26-year-old was matched at the massive price of 80.079/1 in the First Goalscorer market.
United hit a high of 5.85/1 to win the game in the Match Odds market but those who had backed the Premier League outfit had to wait until midway through the second half for the Red Devils to level, Ander Herrera finding the bottom corner from just inside the box.
And just 10 minutes later Louis van Gaal's men won the game when Marouane Fellaini's header came back to him on the edge of the six-yard box before the Belgian volleyed the ball into the roof of the net. Wayne Rooney blasted home a late penalty.

In the other quarter-final matches Bradford City will host Reading, meaning at least one non-Premier League club will be playing at Wembley in the FA Cup semi-final.
Phil Parkinson's League One side followed their stunning win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge with another magnificent win over Premier League outfit Sunderland on Sunday, while Championship side Reading won away at Derby to ensure their passage through to the quarter-final.
Liverpool - available to back at 3.211/5 to lift the trophy - will host Championship side Blackburn, while Aston Villa were drawn at home to Midlands rivals West Brom in an all-Premier League tie.
