FA Cup Draw: Who Is In The Fifth Round To Potentially Face Arsenal or Man United?

Posted by

We take a look at the potential permutations of the upcoming FA Cup fifth round draw.

There is now just one more tie to play on FA Cup fourth round weekend, with Mark Hughes taking his Stoke City side to Spotland on Monday evening to face a Rochdale side who are having an impressive season in League One.

It’s been a weekend dominated by shocks, however, after League Two side Cambridge United kicked things off on Friday evening by holding Manchester United to a shock 0-0 draw in the ramshackle surrounds of their Abbey stadium.

Saturday continued in much the same vein as League One outfit Bradford City came from two goals down to stun Premier League leaders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Championship high flyers Middlesbrough won at Manchester City and Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur both also lost at home.

Sunday was a day for the Premier League sides as West Ham United, Aston Villa and Arsenal all made it through against the challenge of lower league teams.
