FA Cup 5th-round draw: Potential Hollywood blockbuster for Tottenham; Man Utd handed another home test; Leeds equal cup record
Tottenham could be heading to Wrexham in the FA Cup fifth round, if the Ryan Reynolds-owned Welsh outfit can get past Sheffield United in a replay, while Manchester United have been handed another home tie and Leeds might be Fulham bound as they equal a tournament record.
Wrexham almost snatched a famous win against the Blades at The Racecourse over the weekend, with Hollywood A-lister Reynolds cheering on from the stands, only for the visitors to equalise in stoppage-time in a thrilling 3-3 draw.
Spurs, meanwhile, had Son Heung-min to thank as they cruised to a 3-0 win at Preston to book their place in round five.
Having seen off Reading in the previous round, United are at home again. Erik ten Hag’s men will take on either Derby or fellow Premier League side West Ham next.
Leeds will head to either Fulham or Sunderland for what will be a 12th successive away tie in the competition for Jesse Marsch’s men, which equals an FA Cup record.
Manchester City have a tricky trip to Bristol City on the horizon. And it could be the Nathan Jones derby if Luton can get past Grimsby, with a trip to Jones’ current club Southampton in the offing.
Fifth-round draw in full:
Southampton v Luton or Grimsby
Leicester v Blackburn or Birmingham
Stoke v Brighton
Wrexham or Sheffield United v Tottenham
Fulham or Sunderland v Leeds
Bristol City v Manchester City
Manchester United v Derby or West Ham
Ipswich or Burnley v Sheffield Wednesday or Fleetwood
The ties will be played the midweek beginning February 27 and there are no replays.
