FA Cup

Big guns avoid each other in FA Cup fifth-round draw

Premier League leaders Manchester City will travel to Championship side Peterborough United while Chelsea are away at Luton Town in the FA Cup 5th round.

Update:
Big guns avoid each other in FA Cup fifth-round draw

Premier League leaders Manchester City will travel to Championship side Peterborough United while Chelsea are away at Luton Town in the Fifth Round of the FA Cup after most of the top-flight sides avoided each other in Sunday's draw.

City came from behind to beat Fulham 4-1 while Chelsea defeated Plymouth Argyle 2-1 in extra time on Saturday. Tottenham Hotspur, who saw off Brighton & Hove Albion 3-1, must travel to Middlesbrough, who beat Manchester United on penalties at Old Trafford.

In an all-Premier League clash, Southampton host West Ham who survived a potential upset at the hands of non-league side Kidderminster Harriers with last-gasp goals in normal time and extra time.

Liverpool will host Norwich City after being Cardiff City 3-1 on Sunday while defending champions Leicester City are eliminated after losing 4-1 at Nottingham Forest, who will be visited by Huddersfield Town.

Boreham Wood earn 5th Round ticket to Goodison

The shock result came in Sunday's final game as Championship side Bournemouth were dumped out by giant-killing Boreham Wood, who play in the National League - the fifth tier of English football. Mark Ricketts' strike just before half-time was enough to see The Wood go through - the furthest they have ever reached in the competition in their 74-year history. Next, they face a trip to Goodison to meet Frank Lampard's Everton.

The Fifth Round games will be played in the week commencing Monday 28 February.
