And the draw sees Guus Hiddink's side travel to face Everton, their opponents in The Final of 2009 when the Dutch coach led the west London club to victory over the Toffees at Wembley.

Championship side Reading are rewarded for their 3-1 win over West Bromwich Albion with another home tie, as Crystal Palace face a trip to the Madejski Stadium where Eagles boss Alan Pardew once managed.

After an impressive 5-1 win on the road at Blackburn Rovers on Sunday, West Ham will have to make another trip north in the next round as they will face the winners of Monday's fifth round tie between Shrewsbury Town and Manchester United.

Ties in the sixth round will take place across the weekend of 11-14 March 2016.
