City to face Chelsea in FA Cup

City will host Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium the FA Cup fifth round.

The tie was the very first to be drawn and has been deemed one of the most exciting fixtures of the fifth-round.

To reach this stage in the competition, Chelsea narrowly defeated Stoke whilst City produced a stunning comeback from 2-0 down to defeat Watford 4-2.

The last time the two sides met in the FA Cup was at Wembley Stadium in last year's semi-finals. That day, the Blues ran out 2-1 winners with goals from Samir Nasri and Sergio Aguero.

The two sides have already met once in the league this season - a 2-1 win for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge - and they will play each other again on Monday 3 February in Manchester.

Ticket details will be revealed in due course so keep checking back to mcfc.co.uk!
