FA Cup Fifth Round Draw: United Get Derby Or West Ham


The English Football Association announced the fixtures for the FA Cup Fifth Round on Monday and one of the most anticipated fixtures in the round is Manchester United vs Derby County or West Ham United.

This fixture means that any team between Derby County and West Ham United that wins the ongoing FA Cup fourth-round replay, will face the Premier League giants.

Also, Wrexham will play Tottenham in the FA Cup’s fifth round if they beat Sheffield United in their rematch from the fourth round. On Sunday, the National League team held their Championship opponents to a 3-3 draw.

Manchester City will strive to avoid an upset against Championship team Bristol City.

If the Hatters win their replayed FA Cup fourth-round game against Grimsby, they might play Nathan Jones’ Southampton squad against Luton in a subsequent rematch.

While Brighton, who on Sunday eliminated reigning champions, Liverpool, will visit Stoke, Leeds will travel to Sunderland or Fulham.
