Manchester City will travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea in the FA Cup 5th Round proper between February 19 and 22nd. Chelsea sit 13th in the Premier League and defeated MK Dons 5-1 in the 4th Round. The side has not lost a game in any competition since the sacking of Jose Mourinho following a loss at Leicester City in mid December.

The Citizens have been unlucky with this FA Cup draw, facing Premier League sides away from home in each round. Nonetheless, Manchester City has run riot against Norwich and Aston Villa in the 3rd and 4th round respectively and given Chelsea's defensive frailties, might be tipped to do so in round five as well.

Full 5th Round draw is below:

Chelsea v Manchester City

Reading v West Brom/Peterborough

Watford v Leeds United

Shrewsbury Town v Manchester United

Blackburn Rovers v Liverpool/West Ham United

Tottenham v Crystal Palace

Arsenal v Hull City

Bournemouth v Everton
