Chelsea and Liverpool handed home ties, United and Arsenal clash

League One Huddersfield have drawn holders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, but the undoubted tie of the fifth round sees Arsenal travel to Manchester United. Huddersfield, along with Bristol Rovers, are the lowest ranked team left in the competition and they will be delighted with their chance to take on Avram Grant's Blues. Rovers in comparison could fancy their chances of making the quarter-finals after being drawn at home to Southampton. With Arsenal taking on United, one of the remaining six Premier League sides are guaranteed to go out. Liverpool's reward for overcoming non-league Havant and Waterlooville is another home tie, this time against Championship Barnsley. The remaining two Premier League sides, Middlesbrough and Portsmouth, both face tricky away tests against Championship clubs in the shape of Sheffield United and Preston respectively. At least two further Championship teams are guaranteed to progress into the last eight as Cardiff drew Wolves, whilst Midlands rivals Coventry and West Brom will clash at The Ricoh Arena.
