FA Cup fifth round draw

Chelsea host Man City in the tie of the round

Manchester City will travel to Chelsea in the fifth round of the FA Cup as they bid to complete a historic quadruple this season.

In the tie of the round, Manuel Pellegrini’s men, who beat Aston Villa on Saturday, must travel to Stamford Bridge after the Blues beat the MK Dons 5-1 on Sunday afternoon.

The lowest ranked team left in the competition, Shrewsbury Town, will welcome Manchester United to New Meadow in a glamour tie for the League One side.

There are two other all Premier League ties in the fifth round with Tottenham hosting Crystal Palace in a London derby and Bournemouth taking on Everton at Dean Court.

Hull’s reward for their win over Bury in the fourth round is a difficult trip to face cup holders Arsenal at the Emirates.

The winners of the Liverpool v West Ham replay will travel to Ewood Park to face Blackburn, while Reading await the winners of the West Brom and Peterborough clash.

In the final tie of the round, Premier League outfit Watford will welcome Leeds to Vicarage Road.
