Fifth-tier Sutton United from the National League will host Premier League giants Arsenal after reaching the last 16 of the tournament in dramatic fashion. 

Sutton beat second-tier Leeds United on Sunday to make the fifth round after knocking out third-tier AFC Wimbledon in the round before. Paul Doswell’s side have captured the hearts and imagination of millions and this latest draw will make the tiny club from south London plenty of cash. 

There are no all-Premier League ties in the seven other matches as Manchester United travel to Blackburn, Chelsea travel to Wolves, Tottenham Hotspur head to Fulham and Manchester City head to Huddersfield with plenty of potential banana skins for the PL big boys.

Below is the draw for the fifth round in full with the ties to be played the weekend of Feb. 18.
