Manchester City face a trip to Wigan Athletic in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The game will be a repeat of the 2013 FA Cup final, which Wigan won 1-0, but hopefully City can make amends at the DW Stadium.

Paul Cook’s side are currently top of League One, two points clear of Shrewsbury Town having played a game less.

Wigan have already claimed two Premier League scalps in the competition so far. They knocked out West Ham in the fourth round, beating the Hammers 2-0.

They also defeated Bournemouth 3-0 in the third round, in a replay, after a 0-0 draw at the Vitality Stadium.

Here’s a look at the draw in full:

Sheffield Wednesday v Notts County or Swansea

West Brom v Southampton

Chelsea v Hull

Leicester City v Sheffield United

Huddersfield or Birmingham v Manchester United

Brighton v Coventry

Millwall or Rochdale v Newport or Tottenham

Wigan v Manchester City

The ties are due to take place over the weekend of the 17-18 February 2018.

There’s no real standout tie with all the big teams left in the competition managing to avoid each other.

The draw also means there should be a few underdogs in the quarter-finals which might make things interesting.
