Citizens handed Latics repeat

29 January 2018 14:43:49 EST

Manchester City will take on Wigan Athletic in the fifth round of the FA Cup, in a repeat of the 2013 Wembley final which was famously won 1-0 by the Latics.

Wigan, whose Wembley hero was Ben Watson, have home advantage against the Citizens, who are currently the runaway leaders of the Premier League.

In being paired with Pep Guardiola's outfit, League One table-toppers Wigan have been handed a big reward for a superb 2-0 victory over top-flight West Ham in round four.

2017 runners-up Chelsea have been drawn at home to Championship strugglers Hull City, while Manchester United will visit the winners of the replay between Huddersfield Town and Birmingham City.

The two League Two sides in the draw for the last-16 have both been drawn away from home, should they progress from their respective replays.

The winner of the second clash between Newport County and Tottenham Hotspur will take on either Millwall or Rochdale.

Meanwhile, Sheffield Wednesday await Notts County, should they dispose of Premier League basement side Swansea City.

Draw:
Sheffield Wednesday v Notts County or Swansea City
West Bromwich Albion v Southampton
Chelsea v Hull City
Leicester City v Sheffield United
Huddersfield Town or Birmingham City v Manchester United
Millwall or Rochdale v Newport County or Tottenham Hotspur
Brighton & Hove Albion v Coventry City
Wigan Athletic v Manchester City

Manchester City are available at 7/4 to lift the FA Cup this season, with Leicester City priced at 12/1 and Chelsea 5/1.
