Who can Crystal Palace draw in FA Cup fifth round? TV details, ball numbers and more



Crystal Palace will find out their next opponents in the FA Cup on Sunday when the draw for the fifth round takes place.

The Eagles booked their place in the last-16 by beating League Two side Hartlepool United 2-0 at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon.

Marc Guehi and Michael Olise both scored early in the first half to secure victory, which sees Palace into the fifth round of the competition for the first time since 2019.

They are joined in the next stage by several other Premier League sides including Chelsea and West Ham, with both needing extra-time to overcome lower league opposition in Plymouth Argyle and Kidderminster Harriers respectively.

Manchester United, who beat Palace in the 2016 FA Cup final at Wembley, were knocked out on Friday night on penalties to Championship side Middlesbrough, though neighbours Man City came from a goal down to beat Fulham 4-1 the following day.

There are still three spots in the next round up for grabs, with Liverpool vs Cardiff, Bournemouth vs Boreham Wood and Nottingham Forest vs Leicester all to come on Sunday.

Fans will be able to follow the draw live on ITV at around 11.40am ahead of the tie between Liverpool and the Bluebirds, which is set to kick-off at Anfield at 12pm.
