With just 16 teams left in the FA Cup, the hunt for silverware is on for the remaining clubs. Here are the fixtures for the 5th round of the FA Cup:
Burnley FC vs Lincoln City
It's a historical day for the National League side (5th tier of English football) as they travel to face Premier League side Burnley in the 5th round of the FA Cup. They are separated by 81 league positions in English football (Burnley 12th in 1st tier and Lincoln league leaders of 5th tier). Lincoln have nothing to lose and will give it their all to reach the quarterfinals of the FA Cup.

Middlesborough vs Oxford
Middlesborough will take on League One outfit Oxford – who beat Newcastle United 3-0 in the last round of the FA Cup and proved they are not be trifled with. Oxford United will look to reach their first quarter-final of the FA Cup since 1963-64.
Millwall vs Leicester
Struggling Leicester City know it won't be easy against League One side Millwall as they have already staged two major upsets of the FA Cup by beating Premier League sides Watford and Bournemouth. Considering Leicester City's current league form, another Premier League upset could be on the cards.

Huddersfield vs Manchester City
The Championship side host English giants Manchester City at John Smith's Stadium. Pep Guardiola will be looking to finish with atleast one trophy in his first season at Manchester City and hence his side will not be taking this fixture lightly.
Wolverhampton vs Chelsea
Wolves face Premier League leaders Chelsea in the Round of 16 as they look to continue their giant killing act. They have already defeated Premier League sides, Liverpool and Stoke. However, getting past the challenge of the Premier League leaders will be a monumental task for the Championship club. Chelsea are hopeful of a double this season and are expected to field a really strong lineup.
Fulham vs Tottenham
Tottenham avoided a humiliating defeat at the hands of League 2 outfit Wycombe in the previous round as they needed a late Dele Alli goal to win the game. Now they face ex- Premier League side Fulham, who brushed aside Hull 4-1 in the last round of the Cup.

Blackburn vs Manchester United
22 years back this fixture would have been an intriguing all-Premier League clash. However, Blackburn's glory days are well behind them now, and they will look to change that against Manchester United, by entering the quarterfinals and fighting for the FA Cup.
