FA Cup 5th Round Draw: Rooney likely to face united, While Chelsea may host Liverpool



Wayne Rooney could likely face old club Manchester United in the FA Cup fifth round if Derby edge past Northampton in their replay, while Chelsea will host the winner of Liverpool VS Shrewsbury at Stanford Bridge.

Derby will host Northampton on the 4th of February after being held to a goalless draw in the first game and will welcome 12-time winners Manchester United to Pride Park if they win the replay.

Liverpool will host Shrewsbury on February 4 and Jurgen Klopp promise to rest his senior players and plays "the youngsters" at Anfield.

If Liverpool edge past their League One opponents, they will face Premier League rivals Chelsea in a repeat of the 2012 FA Cup final.

Meanwhile, Manchester City who won the trophy last year with a 6-0 thrashing of Watford, will head to Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.
