Pompey were rewarded for their exploits in the Carling (League) Cup with a home tie against Aston Villa.
Most fans would probably have favoured drawing Blackburn Rovers but a home draw in the quarter final of any competition is a big bonus. It is also the only tie outside of Lancashire.
The full draw is
Blackburn v Chelsea
Manchester City v Arsenal
Manchester United v Tottenham
Pompey v Aston Villa
Games are played in the week commencing 30th November.
