Manchester United will host Reading in the only all-Premier League FA Cup fifth-round fixture, following Sunday's draw.

Arsenal will face Championship club Blackburn at the Emirates Stadium, while Manchester City will welcome Leeds to the Etihad Stadium.

Liverpool's conquerors Oldham will host another Merseyside club next, Everton.

If they can beat Brentford at the second attempt, Chelsea will face a trip to Middlesbrough in the last 16, while giant killers Luton Town - who knocked out Norwich - will play Millwall at Kenilworth Road.

Huddersfield/Leicester v Wigan
