Is a title challenge possible for Man Utd?

FA Cup Fifth Round draw

Reading manager Steve Coppell believes his side have the draw 'nobody wanted'' after being pitted against Manchester United at Old Trafford in the FA Cup fifth round.

Coppell, a former United player, admits his team must concentrate on their Premiership duties before the tie, which is due to be played on the weekend of February 17 and 18.

United have already disposed of two top-flight opponents at Old Trafford in the cup this season in the shape of Aston Villa and Portsmouth, and the Royals boss is well aware of the size of the job required to stop Rooney, Ronaldo and company.

'Man Utd away means nothing to me until it's the next thing on the horizon,'' was Coppell's typically understated response to the draw.

'Nobody wants to be drawn away to Manchester United. It's the draw everyone would say is the hardest.

'When it comes around it will be a great occasion for this club against arguably the best team in the Premiership at the moment.''

Chelsea, United's closest challengers in the Premiership title race, are also at home and will face the winners of a Carrow Road replay between Norwich and Blackpool.

Norwich manager Peter Grant insists a potential FA Cup fifth-round tie away to the Premiership champions 'doesn't concern him'' at this stage.

He told the club's official website: 'I didn't watch the draw because it doesn't concern me yet.

'If we were already through to round five then that would be different. But we know we need to get Blackpool out of the way first - that's my only concern.

'It's the sort of draw which might give added motivation to everyone else, but for us we've already got that because we've got a tough match against Blackpool.''

Fulham's victory over Stoke has earned them a home tie against rivals Tottenham in the last 16.

Striker Tomasz Radzinski is determined to keep their cup run going as the prospect of playing in the first final at the new Wembley looms ever closer.

Radzinski, also on the scoresheet against Stoke, added: 'There are only 16 teams left, so the serious cup business begins now.

'The manager put his strongest team on the field against Stoke because he wants to go further in this competition.

'Speaking to the guys during the warm-down, they all said that anything can happen in the last 16.

'It would be great to play at Wembley. I've never had the chance and now we have an opportunity to play in this fantastic new stadium.''

Preston manager Paul Simpson admitted he was delighted to have been drawn at home to former club Manchester City in the FA Cup fifth round.

Simpson, who began his playing career as an apprentice midfielder at Maine Road, will welcome Stuart Pearce's men to Deepdale after beating Crystal Palace 2-0 in the fourth round at the weekend.

He said: 'I am delighted, it is a great draw for us and a great draw for the supporters.

'When you get to this stage you want to progress but also you're looking to make as much money as you can and maybe our game will be live on television - but I'm sure we'll get a full house anyway.

'I think everyone wants to come up against a former club and I have very fond memories of playing there, it is a tremendous club to be involved with.

'I've only faced City once before, in a pre-season friendly with Rochdale, and we got hammered.

'Hopefully this time that won't happen. We are confident going into every game but we won't be disrespectful of a team like Manchester City - if things go our way we can beat anyone though.''

Bristol City, who held Middlesbrough to a 2-2 draw at Ashton Gate at the weekend, will be at home to West Brom if they can overcome Gareth Southgate's side in a Riverside replay.

Arsenal or Bolton will host Blackburn while Plymouth's clash with Derby guarantees Championship representation in the quarter-finals.

Watford's reward for knocking out last season's beaten finalists West Ham is a home tie against Ipswich.
