The Football Association took the time on Monday to draw the remaining 16 teams in the FA Cup into eight fifth round match-ups. And Manchester City have a very interesting route to the quarterfinals.

The Sky Blues will face Huddersfield Town of the Championship away from home. The Terriers made their debut in the third round, easily beating League 1 Port Vale 4-0 at home. In the fourth round they traveled to Rochdale, and also won 4-0 to book a place in the Round of 16.

Huddersfield sit in fifth place in the Championship table and have a good chance of being in the Playoffs for a Premier League place at the end of the season. With only two losses in their last 10 league matches, they're certainly on the rise. Huddersfield have a Manchester City player in their squad. Australian midfielder Aaron Mooy is the team's best playmaker, but will be unavailable to face his parent club in this tie.

The fifth round matches will be played between 17-20 February.

This is the full result of the draw:

Burnley vs Lincoln City
Fulham vs Tottenham Hotspur
Blackburn Rovers vs Manchester United
Sutton United vs Arsenal
Middlesbrough vs Oxford United
Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Chelsea
Huddersfield Town vs Manchester City
Millwall vs Derby County OR Leicester City
