Arsenal are facing Manchester United in the quarter-finals of the competition…
In the aftermath of a favourable FA Cup draw Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has joked that Steven Gerrard may have had something to do with it.
The quarter-final ties seem very favourable to the Reds. Main rivals for the trophy Manchester United and Arsenal are playing against each other, while they only have to face Championship Blackburn Rovers.
This will have been even better news for Gerrard, as this looks to be his final season at Anfield. The 34-year-old will be looking to go out with a final piece of silverware and what’s more, it is his birthday on the day of the final.
In reaction to the draw Carragher tweeted…
Never saw the draw for the Fa Cup but just heard the quarter final ties. Did Steven Gerrard do the draw?
