Wrexham could play Spurs, Man Utd to face West Ham or Derby – FA Cup fifth round draw

The draw for the fifth round of the FA Cup has been carried out.

The fourth round gave us plenty of excitement. Two more of the ‘Big Six’ dropped out, with Arsenal falling to Manchester City and Brighton & Hove Albion eliminating Liverpool.

Six ties finished as draws, and will subsequently go to a replay. This includes non-league Wrexham’s clash with Sheffield United, which ended in a thrilling 3-3 draw.

All replays will be played on February 7, with the exception of Birmingham City vs Blackburn Rovers, which is scheduled for January 31.

Derby County and West Ham United are yet to face each other, with their game to take place shortly after the draw.

There will be a maximum of two all-Premier League ties in the fifth round. Fulham will host Leeds United if they win their replay against Sunderland, and West Ham will travel to Manchester United if they can get past Derby.

Wrexham have a potential headline clash, as they have the opportunity to welcome Tottenham Hotspur to the Racecourse Ground. As for favourites Manchester City, they travel to Bristol City.

The fifth-round fixtures are scheduled to be played in the week beginning February 27.
