FA Cup 5th round draw in full: Chelsea vs Man Utd plus full fixtures and 2019 dates confirmed
FA Cup 5th round draw: The FA Cup draw for fifth-round has been done, with 16 teams left in the competition.

Holders Chelsea host last year’s runners-up Manchester United in the fifth round of the FA Cup. 

The Premier League heavyweights met in last year’s final, which the Blues won 1-0.

Middlesbrough or Newport will host Pep Guardiola’s quadruple-chasing Manchester City in the next round.

While League One Doncaster will welcome Premier League side Crystal Palace to the Keepmoat Stadium.

FC Wimbledon’s reward for beating West Ham is a home tie with Millwall, who also shocked Premier League opposition on Saturday, while Frank Lampard’s Derby travel to either Brighton or West Brom.

Bristol City will host either Shrewsbury or Wolves, while Swansea are at home to Barnet or Brentford and the winner of the replay between Portsmouth and QPR will welcome Watford.

The ties will take place between February 15 and 18.

Bristol City v Shrewsbury/Wolves
AFC Wimbledon v Millwall
Doncaster v Crystal Palace
Middlesbrough/Newport v Man City
Chelsea v Man Utd
Swansea v Barnet/Brentford
Portsmouth/QPR v Watford
Brighton/West Brom v Derby

Who is doing the FA Cup 5th round draw in full?

A couple of multiple FA Cup winners, in Ian Wright and Alex Scott.

Both will, of course, be sad to see no Arsenal in the draw, although Wrighty will no doubt be chuffed that Crystal Palace, for whom he scored twice in a cup final, are in the hat after knocking out Spurs. 

We’re expecting the draw to begin in around ten minutes’ time…

AFC Wimbledon
Shrewsbury or Wolves
Brighton or West Brom
Bristol City
Middlesbrough or Newport
Man City
Barnet or Brentford
Portsmouth or QPR
Man Utd
Crystal Palace
