Leeds to Play Manchester City in F.A. Cup; Oldham Hosts Everton

Jan. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Second-tier Leeds United, which upset Tottenham 2-1 today, was drawn to play at Premier League champion Manchester City in the fifth round of English soccer’s F.A. Cup.

Five-time Cup winner City last won the competition in 2011. Leeds’s only F.A. Cup title came in 1972.

Third-tier Oldham Athletic was drawn to play Everton after today’s surprise 3-2 win over the Toffees’ Merseyside rival Liverpool, a seven-time F.A. Cup champion.

Fifth-level Luton Town, the biggest surprise winner with a victory at Premier League Norwich yesterday, meets another upset winner Millwall, which defeated Aston Villa.

Premier League leader Manchester United hosts Reading, while defending F.A. Cup champion Chelsea will play at Middlesbrough if the Blues overcome third-tier Brentford in a replay.

MK Dons, a surprise winner at top-division Queens Park Rangers, hosts Barnsley, while Huddersfield or Leicester plays Wigan. Arsenal hosts Blackburn.

Seven-time winner Chelsea beat Liverpool 2-1 in last May’s F.A. Cup final to win the competition for a fourth time in six seasons.

Fifth-round draw:

     Huddersfield/Leicester   vs   Wigan
     MK Dons                  vs   Barnsley
     Oldham                   vs   Everton
     Luton Town               vs   Millwall
     Arsenal                  vs   Blackburn
     Manchester City          vs   Leeds
     Manchester United        vs   Reading
     Middlesbrough            vs   Brentford or Chelsea
