That just about wraps up the draw for the fifth round of the FA Cup. Be sure to check back in with IBTimes UK tomorrow as we bring you comprehensive coverage of transfer deadline day and seven Premier League fixtures including that eagerly-anticipated clash between Liverpool and Chelsea at Anfield.

Goodbye for now.


A cracking draw, that. All the remaining big-hitters are away from home and will be looking to avoid potential upsets.

The pick of the ties is unquestionably Sutton's date with Arsenal. It'll be interesting to see what the Gunners make of that artificial surface down at the Borough Sports Ground.

Ties will be played across the weekend of the 17-20 February. Leicester and Derby will settle their fourth-round tie at the King Power Stadium a week on Wednesday.


Here are the relevant ball numbers ahead of tonight's draw:

1. Tottenham Hotspur

2. Derby County or Leicester City

3. Oxford United

4. Sutton United

5. Wolverhampton Wanderers

6. Arsenal

7. Lincoln City

8. Chelsea

9. Manchester United

10. Millwall

11. Huddersfield Town

12. Burnley

13. Blackburn Rovers

14. Fulham

15. Middlesbrough

16. Manchester City


Elsewhere, Leicester City and Derby County are the only two teams set to contest a fourth-round replay after their entertaining 2-2 draw on Friday night. Middlesbrough remain in the running following Stewart Downing's lovely winner against Accrington Stanley and Huddersfield Town were completely untroubled by Rochdale.


Steven Defour played a starring role in Burnley's win over Bristol City and a joint-protest took place before Blackburn Rovers' 2-0 defeat of Blackpool at Ewood Park.


The weekend's upsets did not just begin and end with Lincoln and Sutton, either. Liverpool's awful January continued with their third home defeat on the spin against Wolverhampton Wanderers, while Oxford United eased past Newcastle United and Millwall edged Watford.

We are not even sure that impressive Fulham's drubbing of sorry Hull City even counts as a surprise, other than the fact that no-one could possibly have predicted that Abel Hernandez would miss two penalties in as many minutes.

Wycombe Wanderers gave Tottenham an almighty fright before succumbing in a seven-goal thriller at White Hart Lane, meanwhile. Things were far easier for Arsenal and Manchester City, who met with preciously little resistance from Southampton and Crystal Palace in tedious all top-flight ties.

Chelsea also thrashed Brentford in a west London derby and Championship strugglers Wigan Athletic acquitted themselves well for an hour at Old Trafford before being beaten 4-0 by the holders.


Reports of the FA Cup's slow and painful demise may have been greatly exaggerated following the kind of captivating weekend of shocks that could help to revitalise the world's oldest footballing competition.

Debate continues to rage over Premier League and Championship teams cheapening the cup by fielding weakened teams showing multiple changes, but that should not detract from the achievements of Lincoln City and Sutton United. The National League duo upset Championship promotion contenders Brighton & Hove Albion and Leeds United to ensure that there are two non-league teams in the hat for the last 16 for the first time ever.

Lincoln City

How Danny Cowley and Paul Doswell would now love to draw one of the remaining big boys in Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal, Manchester United or Manchester City away from home.

Stay tuned to IBTimes UK for live coverage of tonight's fifth-round draw, which is set to get underway at approximately 19.20 GMT.
