The Barclays Premier League's top four will all face off in the fifth round of the FA Cup with Manchester City hosting Chelsea and Arsenal taking on Liverpool.

Manuel Pellegrini's City, winners in 2011 and runners-up to Wigan last year, recovered from two goals down to beat Watford in the fourth round on Saturday and meet Chelsea following the Blues' slender 1-0 victory over Stoke.

Ten-time winners Arsenal are currently out in front in the Premier League and tackle Brendan Rodgers' ambitious Liverpool after the top-flight sides ousted Coventry and Bournemouth respectively.

Draw for the fifth round of the FA Cup:

Manchester City v Chelsea

Sheffield United or Fulham v Nottingham Forest or Preston

Arsenal v Liverpool

Brighton v Hull

Cardiff v Wigan

Sheffield Wednesday v Charlton

Sunderland v Southampton

Everton v Swansea

Matches to be played on the weekend of February 15-16.
