Fa Cup fifth Round: Chelsea to face Manchester United while Manchester City to likely host Newport/Middlesbrough

The draw for the fifth round of the FA Cup has been made, with the standout tie seeing Chelsea host Manchester United in a repeat of last season’s final.

Holders Chelsea will be determined to secure victory as they aim to go all the way in the competition again, but they will have to stop a United team that has been in excellent form under the guidance of caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

The Blues have won their last three FA Cup games against United, all by a 1-0 scoreline.

Elsewhere, League Two side Newport County will host Manchester City if they are able to get the better of Middlesbrough in a replay.

Elsewhere, Crystal Palace will face Doncaster Rovers away, while Bristol City will host Shrewsbury or Wolves and AFC Wimbledon’s reward for beating West Ham is a home game against Millwall.

Swansea will take on Barnet or Brentford, Portsmouth or QPR will play Watford and Brighton or West Brom will be up against Derby County.  The ties will take place between February 15-18.
