FA Cup 6th round tie: United opponent still unknown!

Arsene Wenger was badly humiliated last season
once he was sent to the stands by the referee!
Arsenal manager, Arsenal Wenger's hypocrite quadruple dreams may all be shattered now as Arsenal MAY face Mancester United in the 6th round of the F.A. Cup! 
Wenger said "We want to go for every single competition, I have said that many times. How far will we go? I personally believe we can go in every competition to the end. But we can stop very quickly". 
The gunners managed a 1-1 draw against a spirited Leyton Orient side, thanks to a 88th minute equaliser by the substitute Tehoue. 

I believe Arsenal will definitely be out of the FA cup on 12th/13th March (when United play Arsenal) IF they manage to win the replay fixture at the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal, who are currently sandwiched between the United and City in the premier league table at the 2nd place, are four points away from both.  

So Manchester United's 6th round FA Cup opponent still remains a mystery. A replay fixture will now have to be played at Emirates Stadium next week. We all expect Leyton to do the job there just like Everton did at Chelsea in the 4th Cup replay at Stamford Bridge. Even if Arsenal are through to the 6th round by defeating Leyton Orient, we are NOT scared of Arsenal. We only feel that Leyton Orient will give us a better game than Arsenal!! 

However, March will be a challenging month for United as they face Chelsea and Liverpool away within 6 days followed by Champions League action against Marseille at home on 15th March and finally ending with an easier fixture of Bolton at home on 19th of March. Gear up for an interesting football month of March! 
Keep your comments coming, share how you feel about the Red Devils' future fixtures!
