The draw for the fifth round of the FA Cup has been completed (on The One Show, for crying out loud) and the two non-league sides left in the competition have both bagged themselves plum ties.

After sending Ipswich packing in the fourth tie, Lincoln City will travel to Premier League Burnley, while Sutton United – in the fifth round for the first time ever – will be welcoming the mighty Arsenal to Gander Green Lane.

Wolves’ prize for knocking out Liverpool is a visit from Chelsea, while Manchesters United and City will play Blackburn and Huddersfield respectively.

Tottenham, who made heavy weather of beating League Two opponents Wycombe over the weekend, will face Fulham in a London derby.

The FA Cup fifth round draw in full…

Will we see a non-league team squeaking into the quarters?

No, probably not.
