FA Cup Fifth Round draw: Mersey paradise for Oldham heroes who get Everton after dumping out Liverpool
Full details of Sunday's FA Cup draw
Sunday 27 January 2013
Oldham Athletic were rewarded for their victory over Liverpool with another home tie against Merseyside opposition after being paired with Everton in today's fifth-round draw. Paul Dickov's side are in the last 16 for the first time since reaching the semi-finals in 1994.
Holders Chelsea will again face lower-league opposition should they overcome Brentford in a replay, Tony Mowbray's Middlesbrough waiting to welcome the victors. Owing to international matches next week, that replay will not take place until the designated fifth-round weekend, meaning the Riverside match will have to be played at a later date.
Heavyweights Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal were all handed home ties. Roberto Mancini's Premier League champions will host giantkillers Leeds, who beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 yesterday. The last-16 meeting of the pair will be the club's first game in nine years since Stephen McPhail and Mark Viduka gave Leeds a 2-1 victory. Arsenal, without a trophy since winning the competition in 2005, welcome Championship side Blackburn to the Emirates. The tie is a repeat of the 2007 competition, which saw Mark Hughes's side triumph in a replay at Ewood Park after a goalless first match.
Favourites Manchester United will also be at home next month, against a Reading side who have won five of their last six matches.
Wigan Athletic await the winners of Huddersfield's all-Championship replay with Leicester City, which will take place on 12 February.
Non-league Luton's reward for Saturday's win at Norwich is a home tie with Millwall, while Barnsley will travel to Milton Keynes Dons.
Huddersfield/Leicester v Wigan
MK Dons v Barnsley
Oldham v Everton
Luton v Millwall
Arsenal v Blackburn Rovers
Manchester City v Leeds United
Manchester United v Reading
Middlesbro' v Brentford/Chelsea
* Ties will take place 16-17 February, except for the Middlesbrough tie
