After a busy weekend of FA Cup action, we now know who will face off against who in the Fifth Round of the historic tournament.
The big news is that with the exception of Southampton vs West Ham and Liverpool vs Norwich City, all of the remaining Premier League clubs in the competition have been kept apart as they vie for a place in the last eight.
Middlesbrough’s reward for dumping Manchester United out on penalties in the fourth round is a home tie against Tottenham, while Peterborough United, who are in the Fifth Round for the first time since 1986, will host top flight leaders Manchester City.
After having survived a scare against Plymouth Argyle on Saturday afternoon, Chelsea will travel to Luton Town, while Stamford Bridge legend Frank Lampard will steel his new Everton side for a visit from non-league Boreham Wood.
