City 6-4 for FA Cup glory as United go to Chelsea

Chelsea will host Manchester United in the heavyweight FA Cup last-16 clash which guarantees a fourth member of the Premier League's big six will have bitten the dust before the quarter-final stage.

Betway rate Chelsea and United both 9-2 shots to win the competition, but it is Manchester City who have strengthened their position at the head of the market with the 6-4 favourites away to Middlesbrough or Newport in the last 16.

City are still fighting on four fronts and could be in for a big trophy haul. They meet Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final, are strong favourites to overcome Schalke in the Champions League last 16 and sit second in the Premier League, four points off Liverpool.

Crystal Palace, who eliminated Tottenham on Sunday, are into 12-1 following their tie at Sky Bet League One outfit Doncaster and Wolves are also 12-1. Wanderers will be away to Bristol City if they overcome Shrewsbury at Molineux in their fourth-round replay.

There are certain to be at least two non-Premier League teams in the quarter-finals and the lowest-ranked club confirmed as still in the FA Cup - AFC Wimbledon - face a London derby against Millwall for a spot in the last eight. From the fifth round onwards there will be no replays.

FA Cup fifth-round draw: Bristol City v Shrewsbury or Wolves, AFC Wimbledon v Millwall, Doncaster v Crystal Palace, Middlesbrough or Newport v Man City, Chelsea v Man Utd, Swansea v Barnet or Brentford, Portsmouth or QPR v Watford, Brighton or West Brom v Derby. Ties to be played on weekend of 15-18 February.
