Current English Premier League champions Chelsea FC have been drawn to play Manchester City in the 5th round of the FA Cup.
The Blues cruised through the fourth round, as Oscar scored a hat-trick in their 5-1 demolition of MK Dons. The Sky Blues were on song for Fabian Delph’s hostile return to Villa Park, winning the game 4-0.
Leeds United has survived against Bolton, winning 2-1 away from home. The former English giants have been drawn against Watford, a very winnable fixture.
Could we finally see another piece of silverware for the resurging club.
Manchester United has the easiest fixture on paper, but history can tell us that the FA Cup has produced shocking upsets for the Red Devils.
