Sides to make the 6th Round

The FA Cup Fifth Round draw took place today and we have drawn Crystal Palace at White Hart Lane.

FA Cup fifth round draw

Chelsea v Manchester City
Reading v West Brom/Peterborough
Watford v Leeds United
Shrewsbury Town v Manchester United
Blackburn Rovers v Liverpool/West Ham United
Tottenham v Crystal Palace
Arsenal v Hull City
Bournemouth v Everton

Manchester City have not bee great away from home, although it is against the top sides that they have dropped points generally. Chelsea have settled down now Mourinho has been sacked so may well go through at the expense of City.

Reading vs WBA or Peterborough, naturally with the Spurs association (several ex-Spurs players) it would be nice to see Peterborough in the fifth round. Reading have a 6-5-3 home record, 17 for 10 against. With home advantage and a crowd behind them it won't be an easy tie whoever Reading have to play.

Watford have a good opportunity to progress. They have a solid defensive record while Leeds are stubborn away from home. They have drawn 7 of their 15 away games conceding 18 goals and scoring 17. In 12 home games Watford have scored 13 and let in 11. Two teams that like to keep it tight shouts 1-0.

Shrewsbury Town have never met Manchester United in a competitive game before and as every Man United cup tie is televised they are bound to get their day on the box. Should be a simple tie for United against the lowest ranked side left in the competition.

West Ham have a tie against Liverpool that could go either way. Liverpool are poor according to a supporter I know. They are learning a new system and West Ham are not easy to overcome at home. I have a feeling they will make it through to meet Blackburn Rovers who are a tough nut at home. They have drawn 7 out of 13 home games and conceded only 
9 goals, they have only scored 12 themselves. A 0-0 draw and a replay perhaps.

Having just played Crystal Palace we have to fancy our chances of progressing further with a home tie, although we have been known to struggle against them.

Arsenal shouldn't have difficulty getting past Hull City at home. The Championship topping side are bound to have one eye on promotion with the riches of TV money that brings.

Bournemouth have tightened up defensively but Everton have only lost 1 game away from home in the Premier League this season. They have to be favourites to go through with little to realistically play for in the league.
