And the fifth has the potential for several more upsets after all of the big boys avoided each other.

Chelsea, who needed extra-time to overcome Plymouth, will travel to Luton Town’s Kenilworth Road.

The Blues’ last trip to Luton came in 31 years ago as they suffered a 2-0 defeat in the old Division One – but they beat the Hatters 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge in last year’s FA Cup.

Premier League champions Man City are heading to Peterborough United.

And Middlesbrough, who dumped Manchester United out on penalties, will welcome Antonio Conte’s Tottenham to The Riverside.

Elsewhere, Crystal Palace face Championship opposition in Stoke City.

Fifth round ties will be played in midweek, with the round starting on Tuesday 1 March.
