The remaining teams in the FA Cup discovered their fifth-round opponents today, with Manchester City facing Peterborough in their bid to reach yet another final at Wembley later this season.

Having brushed aside Fulham 4-1 last time out, Pep Guardiola’s heavyweights will travel to the capital to take on the Championship strugglers.

Chelsea were paired with Luton Town. Kepa Arrizabalaga’s penalty heroics saw them edge past Plymouth Argyle in the fourth-round, with Marcos Alonso also netting in extra time.

Tottenham will take on Middlesbrough, after Chris Wilder’s high-flying men dumped out Manchester United on penalties at Old Trafford.

Liverpool will host Norwich, meanwhile, if they beat Cardiff this lunchtime. 

The draw has seen the Premier League powerhouses avoid each other yet again, teeing up a host of enthralling ties later in the competition.

Holders Leicester will have to beat Nottingham Forest, a match-up also taking place today, to reach the next round – where they will face Championship outfit Huddersfield. 

Southampton and West Ham were drawn together in an all top-flight encounter at St Mary’s, with Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace pulled out against Stoke City. 

Rounding off the next round of games, Bournemouth or Boreham Wood will head to Goodison Park to face up against Frank Lampard’s Everton side.

The fifth-round fixtures will be played in the week commencing February 28, with victorious clubs earning £180,000 from the prize fund.
