Premier League ties in Round Five: 

Bournemouth won 2-1 against Portsmouth on Saturday to progress to the next round, and now face Everton, who defeated Carlisle 3-0 on Sunday. 

Crystal Palace ended their poor run – one win in seven games – by winning 1-0 against Stoke City in the FA Cup fourth round tie at Selhurst Park. The Eagles travel to North London to face Tottenham Hotspur in the next round.

Both Chelsea and Manchester City progressed through the fourth round without any difficulty. City thrashed Remi Garde’s Aston Villa 4-0, where youngster Kelechi Iheanacho scored the first senior hat-trick of his career. 

Chelsea were equally impressive in their 5-1 victory away at MK Dons on Sunday. Oscar scored a hat-trick for the Blues, but most importantly Eden Hazard hinted a return to his old form having finally found the back of the net to end his goal drought. 

The Blues will fancy their chances of progressing, with the game taking place at Stamford Bridge, however, City have a better record against them in this competition, having won four of their previous five FA Cup games against them. 

Minnows looking to cause upset: 

United travel to New Meadow to take on Shrewsbury Town, where the sides will face each other for the first time in history. 

The Red Devils have been lucky in their cup draws, as they have drawn nine football league clubs in their last 10 FA Cup and League cup ties. 

Louis van Gaal’s side progressed comfortably to the fifth round after beating Derby County 3-1 at Pride Park, and United will be looking to overcome the League One side with ease again. 

Arsenal face Hull City for the third season in a row in the FA Cup. The Gunners won both of their previous encounters and being at home will make them strong favourites to progress, but Hull City are doing exceptionally well in the Championship and are capable of causing an upset.
