LONDON (AP) — Defending champion Arsenal was handed a potentially tricky fifth-round game in the FA Cup on Monday when it was drawn at home against second-tier Middlesbrough.

Middlesbrough eliminated Premier League champion Manchester City in one of Saturday's many fourth-round upsets and will hope to produce another shock at the Emirates Stadium.

Bradford was rewarded for its 4-2 win at Chelsea with a home game against either Premier League struggler Sunderland or League Championship club Fulham.

Manchester United faces a replay against fourth-tier Cambridge United to decide which will visit third-tier Preston or Sheffield United on February 14. United drew 0-0 at Cambridge on Friday.

Crystal Palace meets Liverpool and Aston Villa faces Leicester in two all Premier League ties.

The fifth round is played the weekend of Feb. 14-15.
