In undoubtedly the tie of the fifth round, Chelsea have been drawn against Manchester United in the last 16 of the FA Cup.

The draw was made on Monday night ahead of Brentford’s fourth round clash with Barnet on the BBC and Ian Wright and Alex Scott picked out a replay of last season’s final.

The draw means that if Chelsea can win, only Manchester City will remain of the top six teams in the country – assuming they beat the winner of Middlesbrough vs Newport County, as is expected – potentially opening things up for the Blues to retain their crown.

But first they must pass the hurdle of the red-hot Man United who have won every game since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge just before Christmas.
