Manchester United have been drawn to face holders Arsenal at Old Trafford in the FA Cup fifth round.

The Premier League’s leading two sides, who have won the FA Cup 18 times between them, were the first names drawn for the next round.

They will meet on February 15 or 16 for the first time in the competition since United won an extraordinary semi-final replay 2-1 at Villa Park in 1999, on the way to winning the treble that year.

Both teams enjoyed easy an passage to the last 16; United disposing of fellow Premiership side West Ham 6-0, while Arsenal overcame non-league Farnborough 5-1.

The round’s other potential all-Premiership tie could see Liverpool host Leeds at Anfield, should both teams win their fourth round replays against Crystal Palace and Gillingham respectively.

Third Division Rochdale, the lowest-placed club left in the competition, have been handed an away draw at First Division Wolves. The draw was welcomed by Rochdale boss Paul Simpson, a former Wolves player.

“We’re delighted, it’s a fantastic draw for us, we’re going to a super stadium at Molineux,’ said Simpson.

‘There is a bit of feeling there with me being an ex-Wolves player.

“We’ll look forward to it, we’ve got a couple of weeks to prepare. We’re still there and that’s the main thing about it.

Bookmakers William Hill have made Manchester United and Chelsea 4-1 joint favourites to win the cup, with Arsenal 9-2 and Rochdale the 500-1 outsiders.
