A reminder that all fifth-round ties will be played across the weekend of 19-22 February 2016.

That just about does it for this live blog, but stay tuned to IBTimes UK for all the latest on those matches.

An interesting draw headlined by Chelsea hosting Manchester City. Shrewsbury will be delighted that they have been rewarded for that gutsy win over Sheffield Wednesday with a plum home tie against Manchester United, but you have to feel sorry for Hull as they face Arsenal for the third season in succession.

Tottenham have an all-London affair against top-flight rivals Crystal Palace, while Liverpool or West Ham will travel to Blackburn.

Bournemouth vs Everton

Arsenal vs Hull

Tottenham vs Crystal Palace

Blackburn vs Liverpool or West Ham

Shrewsbury vs Manchester United

Watford vs Leeds

Reading vs West Brom or Peterborough

Chelsea vs Manchester City

The draw is coming up now. Mark Lawrenson will select the home teams, while Ruud Gullit is on away duty.

Here we go...

Not a good omen...


After a fourth-round weekend distinctly lacking in any notable giant-killings, all the big hitters are represented tonight. Manchester United beat Derby 3-1 on Friday, while Arsenal edged past Burnley and Tottenham thrashed Colchester before Chelsea dominated MK Dons from start to finish.

Everton also had little trouble in seeing off the challenge of Carlisle and Leeds were victorious over cash-strapped Bolton. Shrewsbury's last-gasp win against Championship promotion hopefuls Sheffield Wednesday was the only real 'shock' of the round.

Here is a reminder of all the results:

Derby 1-3 Manchester United

Colchester 1-4 Tottenham

Arsenal 2-1 Burnley

Bury 1-3 Hull City

Portsmouth 1-2 AFC Bournemouth

Oxford United 0-3 Blackburn Rovers

Crystal Palace 1-0 Stoke City

Nottingham Forest 0-1 Watford

Shrewsbury Town 3-2 Sheffield Wednesday

Reading 4-0 Walsall

Aston Villa 0-4 Manchester City

Bolton Wanderers 1-2 Leeds United

West Bromwich Albion 2-2 Peterborough United

Liverpool 0-0 West Ham

Carlisle 0-3 Everton

MK Dons 1-5 Chelsea

With only two fourth-round replays to come between Peterborough/West Brom and West Ham/Liverpool, we should have a clear picture of how the last 16 ties will shape up.

Here are all the numbers you need to know...

1 West Bromwich Albion or Peterborough United
2 Leeds United
3 Arsenal
4 Manchester United
5 Reading
6 Liverpool or West Ham United
7 Manchester City
8 Shrewsbury Town
9 Watford
10 Everton
11 Crystal Palace
12 Blackburn Rovers
13 AFC Bournemouth
14 Tottenham Hotspur
15 Hull City
16 Chelsea
