London - Chelsea will tackle fellow Premier League heavyweights Manchester City in the standout tie of the FA Cup fifth round, the draw for which was made on Sunday.

Chelsea booked their place in the last 16 with a 5-1 win at Milton Keynes Dons and were immediately dealt a home game against City, who won 4-0 at Aston Villa on Saturday.

Third-tier Shrewsbury Town, who shocked Championship side Sheffield Wednesday 3-2 in round four, were rewarded with a glamour tie at home to Manchester United.

Meanwhile, Arsenal, seeking a third consecutive FA Cup success, were handed a home tie against second-tier Hull City, who they defeated in the 2014 final.

Tottenham Hotspur will host London rivals Crystal Palace, while another all-Premier League tie sees Everton, 3-0 winners at fourth-tier Carlisle United on Sunday, visit Bournemouth.
