Manchester City will face Wigan Athletic in a re-run of the 2013 FA Cup final as the Premier League heavyweights avoided one another in the fifth-round draw.

The Latics, now in League One, claimed a top-flight scalp at the weekend as Will Grigg’s brace saw off West Ham 2-0, while Pep Guardiola’s men maintained their pursuit of honours on four fronts with a 2-0 victory at Cardiff City.
City were chasing a domestic treble in 2013-14 before Wigan beat them 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium in round six of that season’s FA Cup.
Manchester United will travel to either Huddersfield Town or Birmingham City after Alexis Sanchez’s debut yielded a 4-0 win over League Two Yeovil Town.
