Premier League leaders Manchester City will head to third-tier Wigan Athletic who have already knocked out two Premier League teams in reaching the last 16. Wigan won the FA Cup in 2013, beating Man City in the final in a huge upset to win their first-ever major trophy.

There is only one all-Premier League tie with West Brom hosting Southampton.

If Huddersfield Town win their replay against second-tier Birmingham City then they will host Manchester United, while last seasons runners up Chelsea will host Hull City.

Tottenham will head to lower tier clubs Millwall or Rochdale if they beat fourth-tier Newport in their replay.

The games will be played on the weekend of Feb. 17-18 and here is the schedule below.
