FA Cup Fifth Round Draw 2017-18 Result- Wigan v Man City & Chelsea v Hull

By Soccer Blog | Jan 29, 2018

The draw for the fifth round of the 2017/2018 FA Cup has been made today (January 29, 2018), and the two finalists from the 2012/13 season have been pitted together again, with Wigan Athletic hosting Man City in what promises to be a very tasty tie indeed. City have won 10 of their last 12 games against the Latics, but the two losses have BOTH come in FA Cup games- one in the 2012/13 final, and the other in the sixth round in the 2013/14 season.

There is no match up between the big “six”- the second consecutive season in which the third, fourth and fifth round ties have not produced a SINGLE clash between them. West Brom v Southampton is the only all top flight clash, although Huddersfield v Man Utd could be the other if the Terriers beat Birmingham City in their replay.

There is also a potentially fiery Millwall v Spurs game in the offing if the two teams get past Rochdale and Newport County respectively
