Revised FA Cup Fifth Round Draw

With majority of this weekend’s FA Cup Fourth Round ties complete, we look at the revised Fifth Round Draw to see who will play who next.

This part of the draw was already made last Monday, so we already knew in some way who the teams could potentially face.

There is still two games left to play out, those are Wycombe Wanderers v Tottenham Hotspur and AFC Bournemouth v Crawley Town.

The Fourth Round so far have seen no upsets with teams in the top two tiers starting to take it more serious at this stage of the competition with the final just three wins away.

Wolves knocked out non league Chorley thanks to a quality goal from Vitinha in the first half, though the lowest ranked team really gave them a good game.

Southampton comfortably beat a sparkless Arsenal even if it was down to just the one goal, a Gabriel own goal on the 24th minute.

Lifeless Championship league leaders Norwich suffered a 1-0 defeat away to Barnsley, Callum Styles also with the only goal of the game.

It weren’t all one nils, Brighton beat Blackpool 2-1, Yves Bissouma with a thunderous hit from 30 yards and Steven Alzate’s goals put the Seagulls into the next round.

Famara Diedhiou, Nahki Wells and Antoine Semenyo sent Bristol City through, knocking out Millwall with a 3-0 victory.

Billy Sharp and Chris Basham sealed a 2-1 win for Sheffield United, though Plymouth’s Panutche Camara gave the Blades a late scare at Bramall Lane.

It was a day to forget for Nottingham Forest of the Championship, losing to fellow league rivals Swansea City 5-1. Matt Grimes and Liam Cullen both score twice with Anthony Knockaert giving Forest some hope before they were handed a controversial penalty.

West Ham cruised to a 4-0 win against League One outfit Doncaster rovers at the London Stadium. It took two minutes for Pablo Fornals to open the scoring before Andriy Yarmolenko, Oladapo Afolayan and an Andy Butler own goal cemented the Hammers’ place in the Fifth Round.

Alfie May put League Two side Cheltenham within 10 minutes of causing the biggest FA Cup shock in recent history, before tired legs showed, and Phil Foden and Gabriel Jesus rescued the visitors in the final 10 minutes, the final scoreline 3-1 Man City.

Sunday now and Tammy Abraham’s hat-trick saw Chelsea ease past Championship side Luton 3-1, though we did see a howler from Kepa and a misfired penalty from Chelsea striker Timo Werner late on.

Leicester came from behind to beat league below Brentford with second-half goals from Cengiz Under, Youri Tielemans and James Maddison saw Brendan Rodgers’s side advance after Mads Bech Sorensen’s early goal for Bees.

Burnley’s Jay Rodriguez ended his goal drought with two goals and an assist for Kevin Long’s goal in a comfortable 3-0 win over Scott Parker’s Fulham.

Manchester United knocked out Liverpool with a thrilling 3-2 win, Mason Greenwood cancelling out Mo Salah’s opener, then Marcus Rashford fired United into the lead minutes within the second half starting, though that was cancelled out by Mo Salah’s equaliser 10 minutes later, before Bruno Fernandes restored the host’s lead with a 20-yard free kick and sealed the win.

Everton hosted and beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-0 thanks to goals from Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison and Mina to comfortably seal the win.

The action continues on Monday, when Wycombe Wanderers host Tottenham Hotspur with a 7:45pm kick off on BT Sport 1, before finishing with a 7pm start on Tuesday for Crawley Town’s rearranged trip to AFC Bournemouth on BT Sport Extra 3.
