Hatters host holders Man City in fifth round

The Town’s prize for beating Everton on Saturday is an FA Cup fifth round tie at home against holders Manchester City at Kenilworth Road.


City made it through to the fifth round after beating Tottenham 1-0 on Friday night.

The Hatters and the Citizens have met seven times in total in the competition – but this will be the first time since a 1969 third round tie at Maine Road, which City won 1-0.

Perhaps the most famous meeting between two the clubs came in the FA Cup in 1961. Denis Law scored all six goals as City led 6-2 at Kenilworth Road before the game was abandoned. When the time came to replay the game the Hatters ran out 3-1 winners.

The two sides have already met at Kenilworth Road this season in the Premier League when the visitors came from behind to win 2-1.

The tie will be played the midweek of 26th February. Full ticket information and confirmation of the date of the fixture will be confirmed in due course.
