Arsenal get Liverpool, Man City to face Chelsea in FA Cup fifth round

The FA Cup fifth round draw provided two huge ties as Arsenal were drawn at home to Liverpool and Manchester City were paired with Chelsea.

Premier League leaders Arsenal, whose hunt for a major trophy stretches back to 2005, face a tricky tie as seven-time FA Cup winners Liverpool visit the Emirates.

With Chelsea then drawn against City, it means the Premier League's current top four will face-off. Chelsea received scant reward for their 1-0 fourth round victory over Stoke City on Sunday, as a trip to the Etihad Stadium now awaits Jose Mourinho, who won the FA Cup in 2007 during his first spell at Chelsea.

Elsewhere, Everton boss Roberto Martinez faces former club Swansea at Goodison Park, while holders Wigan go to Cardiff and either Sheffield Wednesday or Charlton Athletic will ensure there is a lower-league presence in this season's quarter-finals.

FA Cup fifth round draw:
Manchester City v Chelsea
Sheffield United or Fulham v Nottingham Forest or Preston North End
Arsenal v Liverpool
Brighton & Hove Albion v Hull City
Cardiff City v Wigan Athletic
Sheffield Wednesday v Charlton Athletic
Sunderland v Southampton
Everton v Swansea City

Ties to be played over February 15 and 16
