Wrexham's potential FA Cup round of 16 opponent: Spurs

Non-league Wrexham could face a dream tie at home to eight-time winners Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup fifth round if they can get past Sheffield United in a replay, while Manchester City will travel to Championship (second-tier) side Bristol City.

Wrexham, owned by Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with visiting Sheffield United on Sunday. The National League (fifth-tier) leaders were only denied a famous victory over the Championship side by a 95th-minute equalizer, forcing a replay scheduled for next month.

Spurs, who won 3-0 at Preston North End in the fourth round, face the winners of the replay following Monday's fifth-round draw, while Manchester City, who knocked out Premier League leaders Arsenal in the fourth round, face a trip to Bristol. Manchester United were handed a home tie against fellow top-flight side West Ham United, who beat Derby County 2-0 on Monday. Brighton & Hove Albion, who knocked out holders Liverpool, will visit Championship side Stoke City.

Ties will take place in the week commencing Feb. 27.
