FA Cup Fifth Round Draw: Chelsea Or Everton Face Reading At Home

New, comments

The FA Cup fifth round draw was announced before the Fulham vs. Tottenham Hotspur match today, and if Chelsea can survive their fourth-round replay against Everton they have what seems to be a fairly easy draw - Reading at Stamford Bridge. There's no reason the Blues can't beat Everton in the replay on February 19th, and this draw gives Chelsea a real chance at making a push for the quarter-finals.

Fifth-round games will be played in February, although teams set for replays (like Chelsea) will be playing later. The full draw is below, complete with colour coding if you're like me and have no idea what tier of football the likes of Brighton currently inhabit.
