FA Cup fifth round fixtures, previews and tips – 16-19 February

The big guns remain in the FA Cup fifth round, with Manchester City and Manchester United having tricky away matches

We have sixteen teams left in the FA Cup, with two Friday night matches taking place and that includes two of the favourites playing home games.

Leicester go up against Sheffield United hoping to bank a last eight spot, while Chelsea should have too much for Hull City although it will be a weakened Blues side taking to the pitch because of Champions League commitments.

On Saturday, we have two televised clashes including Sheffield Wednesday’s game against Swansea City at lunchtime, with Carlos Carvalhal returning to his former club, while the Saturday evening match looks tasty.

Huddersfield have already beaten Manchester United once this season and the Terriers are ready to serve it up to their opponents again, although Premier League survival is the primary motivation.

On Sunday, Rochdale can cast aside their relegation fears when they go up against a Tottenham team who could easily win the FA Cup this season and the final will be played at the national stadium.

Finally, we have probably the most enticing match of the round when Wigan clash with Manchester City on Monday night, with the Latics looking forward to clashing with a team who have cast their minds on the quadruple.

Leicester City 19:45 Sheffield United
Chelsea 20:00 Hull City

Sheffield Wednesday 12:30 Swansea City
Brighton & Hove Albion 15:00 Coventry City
West Bromwich Albion 15:00 Southampton
Huddersfield Town 17:30 Manchester United

Rochdale 16:00 Tottenham Hotspur

Wigan Athletic 19:55 Manchester City
