With the FA Cup fourth round draw not all over, winning has now gone from an unrealistic dream to more of a reality for some teams. A few surprises have already been sprung, and a few comebacks along the way.

The only major upset came at current holders Wigan, with the Latics knocking out Premier League side Crystal Palace in a very fiery affair last weekend.

There are now ten, possibly eleven Premier League sides left in the competition, with the other four or five sides filled by Championship teams. Two League One sides could take the place of a Premier League side or/and a Championship side, Sheffield United and Preston face respective replays for their chance to make it through. 

Routine wins came for all the big boys, but they now face more formidable ties, with Liverpool facing a tough trip to Arsenal and Everton, 4-0 winners against Stevenage, facing Swansea City.

The lowest ranked team definitely through in the competition, Charlton Athletic, make the trip to Sheffield Wednesday in an all-Championship tie.

Manchester City beat Watford in their tie after a fantastic comeback from 2-0 down thanks to a hat-trick for Sergio Aguero, but now face Jose Mourinho's Chelsea who beat Stoke 1-0 in Round Four.

Two of the big boys will be out indefinitely before the quarter-final stage, with Manchester City vs Chelsea and Arsenal vs Liverpool without question the most eye-catching encounters.

Here is the FA Cup Round Five draw in full:

Manchester City vs Chelsea

Sheffield United/ Fulham vs Nottingham Forest/ Preston North End

Arsenal vs Liverpool

Brighton and Hove Albion vs Hull City

Cardiff City vs Wigan Athletic

Sheffield Wednesday vs Charlton

Sunderland vs Southampton

Everton vs Swansea City

Ties will take place over the weekend of February 15th/16th
