When will the FA Cup fifth-round matches take place?

Once the draw is made, teams will have a number of weeks to prepare for their respective ties, with games scheduled to take place during the weekend of February 17 and 18. 

In the third and fourth rounds, the bulk of the games were played on the Saturday of the weekend, but a handful of games were pencilled in for Friday, Sunday and Monday.

A total of 16 teams will progress to the fifth round of the competition but at the time of the draw there will be more names in the hat due to the fact that four ties are still undecided.

There will be four replays as Tottenham were forced to stage a late comeback against League Two side Newport, while Huddersfield Town could not overpower Championship strugglers Birmingham City.

The fourth round sprung some shocks including West Brom's 3-2 win over Liverpool at Anfield and Wigan knocking out West Ham.

Sheffield Wednesday were the first team to book their place in the fifth round thanks to a 3-1 win over Reading, while Yeovil Town were no match for Manchester United, who handed a competitive debut to new signing Alexis Sanchez.
