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.
