League One leaders Wigan will hope history can repeat itself after landing an FA Cup rematch with Manchester City in the fifth round draw.

The DW Stadium clash will stir memories of the 2013 final when Wigan - then sliding out of the Premier League - snatched a stunning late winner through a Ben Watson header.

Manchester United will travel to either Huddersfield or Birmingham, who battled out a 1-1 draw at the weekend and face a replay at St Andrew's.

Chelsea face Hull at Stamford Bridge while Millwall could face Tottenham in a repeat of last season's quarter-final provided they win replays over Rochdale and Newport respectively.
