What is coming up in the fifth round?

Holders Manchester City head to fellow Premier League side Luton Town in a tricky test, while Wolves host Brighton in a tasty all-PL clash.

Bournemouth host Championship leaders Leicester City, while quadruple chasing Liverpool (Premier League, Europa League, League Cup trophy secured and FA Cup) host second-tier Southampton. Manchester United will head to Nottingham Forest after they got past fourth-tier Newport County 4-2 (they went 2-0 up and were dragged back to 2-2 before taking care of business) in the fourth round.

Sixth-tier Maidstone United went to Coventry City in the fifth round after they stunned Ipswich Town to reach the last 16. George Elokobi's minnows were hammered at Coventry but did themselves proud.

Elsewhere, Chelsea will have a tough task to reach the quarterfinals as they host red-hot Leeds.

What big upsets have happened in recent FA Cups?

Last season saw fourth-tier Stevenage roll into Villa Park and send Aston Villa out of the tournament with a 2-1 decision, while third-tier Sheffield Wednesday beat Newcastle United.

League Two's Grimsby Town ousted Southampton in the last 16 last season as well, but were clobbered by Brighton in the quarterfinals. Then Fifth-tier Wrexham took Championship side Sheffield United to a replay last season as well.

The previous tournament, 2021-22, saw Newcastle lose to another third-tier side — Cambridge United. And 2020-21 saw sixth-tier Chorley besting Championship side Derby County, while Premier League outfit Leeds bowed out at League Two's Crawley Town.

In other words, there's always a surprise or two in the third and fourth rounds.

How does the FA Cup work? Are there replays in the FA Cup?

The FA Cup is open to all eligible clubs in the top nine divisions of domestic football in the English league football system, and is the oldest national football competition in the world.

Premier League and Championship clubs enter in the third round, traditionally held just after the calendar turns to a new year.

Drawn third and fourth round games over 90 minutes mandate a replay at the home of the visitors. After the fifth round, all games go to penalty kicks if level after 90 minutes.
