(REUTERS) - English Premier League leaders Manchester City will travel to second-tier Championship side Peterborough while Chelsea are away at Luton in the fifth round of the FA Cup, after most of the top-flight sides avoided each other in Sunday's (Feb 6) draw.

City came from behind to beat Fulham 4-1 while Chelsea defeated Plymouth Argyle 2-1 after extra time on Saturday.

Tottenham, who saw off Brighton 3-1, must travel to Middlesbrough, who beat Manchester United 8-7 on penalties at Old Trafford.

In an all-Premier League clash, Southampton host West Ham, who survived a potential upset at the hands of non-league side Kidderminster Harriers with last-gasp goals in both normal time and extra time.

Liverpool will host Norwich after beating Cardiff 3-1 at Anfield, while Cup holders Leicester must first see off Nottingham Forest, with the winners hosting Huddersfield.

The fifth-round games will be played in the week commencing Feb 28.
