City draw Wigan in repeat of 2013 FA Cup decider

By Steve Simpson

Premier League leaders Manchester City will visit League One table-toppers Wigan in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

It is a repeat of the 2013 FA Cup final, which Wigan - then in the top flight - won 1-0.

City, meanwhile, have confirmed that Leroy Sane sustained ankle ligament damage during Sunday's 2-0 fourth round win over Cardiff City.

The 22-year-old was injured after a strong, late challenge by Cardiff left-back Joe Bennett, who was later sent off for another poor tackle on Brahim Diaz.

Elsewhere, Manchester United will travel to fellow Premier League side Huddersfield or Championship club Birmingham, while Chelsea host Hull.

The ties will take place on the weekend of February 17-18.

Should League Two Newport County, the lowest ranked team left, beat Tottenham in their replay they will travel to Championship side Millwall or Rochdale of League One.

Fifth round draw: Sheffield Wednesday v Notts County/Swansea; West Brom v Southampton; Chelsea v Hull; Leicester v Sheffield United; Huddersfield/Birmingham v Manchester United; Millwall/Rochdale v Newport County or Tottenham; Brighton v Coventry; Wigan v Man City.
