Top Four Drawn Together in FA Cup Fifth Round
Associated Press, January 27th, 2014 12:42PM

MOST READ


The fifth round FA Cup draw returned a couple of headlining clashes as Arsenal, currently top of the English Premier League, hosts fourth-place Liverpool and third-place Chelsea travels to second-place Manchester City.

Asked to comment on the tough draw, Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho, whose team beat Stoke City 1-0 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, said, ''No problem. If you want to be the best you have to play against the best, so it's good for us. Good experience, good game, big game.''

Manchester City, which won the FA Cup in 2011 and lost in last year’s final, avoided a shock defeat at home to second division club Watford, coming from two goals down to win, 4-2, in a game where Sergio Aguero scored a hat trick. Arsenal cruised to a 4-0 win at home to third division club Coventry City, while Liverpool won 2-0 at second division club Bournemouth.

In other fifth round FA Cup clashes, Sunderland will take on Southampton, Everton hosts Swansea, while Wigan, last year’s champion, travels to Cardiff City. The games will be played the weekend of Feb. 15-16. Read the original story...
