FA Cup draw
Chelsea to face Manchester United in FA Cup fifth round
In a replay of last season's FA Cup final, Chelsea will play Manchester United in the fifth round of the competition in 2018-19.
FA Cup holders Chelsea have been drawn against last season's beaten finalists Manchester United at Stamford Bridge in the fifth round.
United to face the Blues
The Blues defeated United 1-0 at Wembley in May as Eden Hazard secured silverware for Antonio Conte in his last match in charge of the victors.
Opposing boss Jose Mourinho has since departed, too, and now Maurizio Sarri and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will go head to head in the last 16 of this season's competition.
With Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham already out, only two of the Premier League's top six can make the quarter-final draw.
Manchester City will be confident of their progression, however, as they visit Middlesbrough or Newport County in the next stage.
