Heavyweights to meet in cup

Last Updated: Sun, 26 Jan 2014 22:15

The tie of the round in the FA Cup will see Manchester City host Chelsea in next month's fifth round.

And they were picked out to play fellow heavyweights Chelsea, who saw off Stoke 1-0 at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The fifth-round tie, certain to be televised, will take place during the weekend of February 15-16.

Arsenal play host to Liverpool in another mouth-watering clash, while holders Wigan - who beat Crystal Palace on Saturday - will travel to Cardiff.
