FA Cup: Who will United face in the fifth round?

Share With

Manchester United will be away to either Birmingham City or Huddersfield Town in the fifth round of the Emirates FA Cup, with the eventual fixture set to be played between 16 and 19 February.

The tie was one of eight drawn out by Dutch football legend Ruud Gullit and former United youth-team player Robbie Savage on Monday evening, three days after the Reds secured a place among the last 16 teams in the competition by winning 4-0 away to League Two club Yeovil Town.

Huddersfield Town were held 1-1 at home by Birmingham City in their original fourth-round meeting on Saturday after Lukas Jutkiewicz's second-half equaliser cancelled out Steve Mounie's opener for the Premier League side. The two sides will contest the right to host the Reds when they meet again in a replay at St Andrew's on Tuesday night next week.

The ultimate FA Cup objective for Jose Mourinho and his players is to win the final on 19 May 2018. Victory on that day at Wembley would put the club's name on the trophy for the 13th time overall, a record that would be shared with last season's winners Arsenal. The Gunners were knocked out in the third round and they have since been joined on the eliminated list by another Premier League top-six side, Liverpool, who lost 3-2 at home to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday night.
