FA Cup holders Leicester will host Huddersfield in the fifth round if they get past Nottingham Forest on Sunday.

The Foxes beat Chelsea in last season's final and will fancy their chances of reaching the quarter finals if they can get past their local rivals.

Elsewhere, Chelsea have been drawn away at Luton, while Boreham Wood could visit Everton if the lowest ranked team in the competition can squeeze past Bournemouth.

Manchester City will visit Peterborough, Norwich will travel to Liverpool, Middlesbrough will host Tottenham and Southampton will take on West Ham at St Mary's. Nottingham Forest joined the rest of the clubs in the fifth round after thrashing holders Leicester.

Non-league Boreham Wood were the last team to book their place in round five, beating Championship promotion chasers Bournemouth to set up a tie with Everton.
