However to add a little spice to the tie it should be noted that
Rafael Benitez's Liverpool side have not beaten Birmingham in four attempts since the Spaniard arrived at Anfield in 2004.
But since Liverpool had not beaten Manchester United in the FA Cup for 85 years prior to Saturdays victory this should be a good time to break such silly records.
The draw for the quarter finals is:
Charlton v Middlesbrough
Aston Villa or Manchester City v Bolton or West Ham
Chelsea v Newcastle United
Birmingham v Liverpool
