In what was a nightmare draw for the four concerned parties and total delight for all the remaining teams in the FA Cup 5th Round, the four favourites still very much in the running for football's oldest prize have been drawn against each other. Arsenal, chasing a record equalling 12th FA Cup triumph will play host to Liverpool in what will be a blockbuster February for the Gunners, while Manchester City will have the honour of welcoming Chelsea to the Etihad Stadium. Crucially for three of the aforementioned sides, they will also be involved in the UEFA Champions League in February with the Gunners and the Citizens having particularly tough tasks ahead of them in that competition as they take on Bayern Munich and Barcelona respectively.
