Round 5’s surprise outfit Leicester City haven’t been spared from a tough last eight draw, with the Foxes hosting last season’s Premier League runners up, Manchester City. Nigel Pearson’s men dispatched of Fulham to become the only side outside of the top tier to make the draw, with fellow Championship outfits Birmingham and Burnley slipping to defeat.
Elsewhere Stoke face a tricky tie against Manchester United, which will see ‘Sparky’ host his former club in search of vengeance after their recent 3-2 league loss at Old Trafford.
Tottenham’s reward for a hard fought victory after penalties against Hull in the previous round is a tie against local rivals West Ham, who will enter the clash off the back of 2-0 triumph against Burnley.
One fourth round clash remains with Sunderland and Southampton due to meet next week. The winner will host Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea in an all Premier League encounter.
