Barclays Premier League champions Chelsea were drawn at home to title challengers Manchester City in the fifth round of the FA Cup, where Sky Bet League One strugglers Shrewsbury have been handed a plum tie against Manchester United at New Meadow.

The Blues impressed as they won 5-1 at MK Dons on Sunday to continue their revival under interim manager Guus Hiddink. City had eased to a comfortable 4-0 win at Aston Villa on Saturday.

Shrewsbury were rewarded for their dramatic comeback to beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-2 by being given another home tie against the Red Devils, who had beaten Derby 3-1 away in the first of the fourth-round fixtures on Friday evening.
