The Football Association have just completed the draw for the FA Cup’s fifth round.

Arsenal will face either West Brom or a familiar Burnley at home in the last 16 with the assumption that they beat Cardiff at the Emirates ( in the 4th Round Replay scheduled for February 3).

If the Gunners face giant-killing Burnley, – who are in pole position in their tie with West Brom – it will be the third meeting in just over a year between the two sides.

Arsenal defeated the Clarets 2-0 in the 3rd round of last season’s FA Cup run but were knocked out of the Carling Cup recently by them. All those events have been at Turf Moore, but this time, Arsenal will play at the Emirates Stadium should this fixture happen.

The 5th round matches will be played on Saturday, February 14.
