Chelsea land United clash

Defending champions Chelsea will host Manchester United in the Fifth round of the FA Cup.

The undoubted tie of the round is a repeat of last year’s final which saw The Blues come out on top.

League Two side Newport County could host Premier League champions Manchester City if they overcome Middlesbrough in their replay. Boro had the chance to play City in the League Cup semi-final but on that occasion lost out to Burton – so that offers Newport real hope of an upset.

Fifth-round draw in full:

Bristol City v Shrewsbury Town or Wolverhampton Wanderers
AFC Wimbledon v Millwall
Doncaster Rovers v Crystal Palace
Middlesbrough or Newport County v Manchester City
Chelsea v Manchester United
Swansea v Barnet or Brentford
Portsmouth or Queens Park Rangers v Watford
Brighton & Hove Albion or West Bromwich Albion v Derby County


With the draw, Chelsea ease to 4/1 from 3/1 with the Red Devils out to 9/2 from 10/3.

Favourites City shorten again and are now just 11/8 from 7/4 as they face the trip to either Middlesbrough or Newport County.
