The FA Cup fifth round draw took place this afternoon and it set up a possible reunion of Manchester United with club legend Wayne Rooney.

If Rooney’s Derby County can beat visiting Northampton on February 4th then it will set up a United vs Derby County matchup at Pride Park. This will be the first time Wayne Rooney has faced United since he left the Premier League and went to DC United in MLS back in 2018.

Other notable matchups could see Liverpool facing Chelsea — if the Scousers can beat Shrewsbury in the replay — and defending FA Cup winners Manchester City traveling to Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.
