Manchester United have been drawn away to either Huddersfield Town or Birmingham City in the FA Cup fifth round, the club has confirmed.
Jose Mourinho’s men progressed comfortably into the next round after beating Yeovil Town 4-0; a game that was Alexis Sanchez’s debut.
Now we’re into the last sixteen and the draw is opening up nicely for the Red Devils and whoever wins the replay between Huddersfield and Birmingham, you’d have to fancy United to book their place in the last eight.

If I were choosing, I’d love to go against Birmingham. It has been a few years since we’ve played the Championship side and it’d be an interesting tie to watch. However, taking revenge on Huddersfield Town in their own backyard would also be fun.
I love the FA Cup. It’s a great tournament that is always excellent to win and no doubt United will be amongst the favourites to go all the way this season. Yes, they’ll probably have to overcome Manchester City at some point, but you’ve got to beat the best to be the best…
The tie will be played over the weekend of 16-19th February.
