FA Cup fifth round draw in full as Chelsea, Tottenham, West Ham and Palace discover opponents


The draw for the fifth round of the FA Cup has been made and some tantalising clashes have been thrown our way. Chelsea , Tottenham, West Ham and Crystal Palace all made their way into the last-16 and are now the sole representatives from the capital left in the competition.

Brentford, QPR and Fulham were dumped out by Everton, Peterborough and Manchester City respectively, while Arsenal were beaten by Nottingham Forest in round three.

 Plymouth Argyle and Kidderminster Harriers came close to causing huge upsets against Chelsea and West Ham respectively but the power of the Premier League big boys proved too much in the end.

Palace and Spurs enjoyed much more comfortable afternoons, beating Hartlepool and Brighton at their respective home grounds, while defeat for Manchester United was the biggest headline of the opening two days.
 Middlesbrough took the Red Devils to penalties at Old Trafford and after Anthony Elanga's miss, Chris Wilder's Championship troops were through.

The fifth round is set to take place in midweek, pencilled in for the moment on Wednesday, March 2. So, who did everyone get? Here is fifth round draw in its entirety:

Luton Town vs Chelsea
