The FA Cup with Budweiser
Fifth Round Proper
Ties to be played 15 and 16 February

The Premier League's top four will line up in two huge FA Cup Fifth Round ties after the draw was made at Wembley on Sunday evening.

England and Tottenham Hotspur winger Andros Townsend picked the balls out of the hat with his dad Troy - one of The FA's 150 grassroots heroes during the anniversary celebrations last year.

And they pulled out two mouth-watering ties that will light up the last-16 stage of the competition over the weekend of 15 and 16 February

Last year's Finalists Manchester City were first out of the hat and were paired with Chelsea, who had just seen off Stoke City in their Fourth Round fixture.

Meanwhile, League leaders Arsenal were drawn out at home to face Liverpool.

There are two other all-top flight ties as Sunderland will take on Southampton and Everton will meet Swansea City.
