League One Stevenage have been drawn against Tottenham in the FA Cup fifth round as a reward for reaching the last 16 for the first time.

Brighton will meet Liverpool at Anfield after in the previous round.

Chelsea host Birmingham, with League Two Crawley Town handed a tough home game against Stoke.

Norwich take on Leicester, while Everton welcome Blackpool or Sheffield Wednesday to Goodison Park.

Bolton will fancy their chances of making the sixth round as they travel to Millwall or Southampton.

Arsenal, who defeated Aston Villa after a spectacular comeback, will take on the winners of the replay between Sunderland and Middlesbrough.

Crawley Town beat Hull City 1-0 in round four on Saturday and their chief executive Alan Williams said: "This is the first time we have faced Premier League opposition at the Broadfield Stadium in a competitive fixture and I'm sure the ground will be packed.

"It's another wonderful occasion for the club, the players and the fans and we look forward to welcoming Tony Pulis and his side here next month."

Brighton gave Kenny Dalglish's Liverpool a scare before losing 2-1 in the Carling Cup in September, but the Seagulls have not been beaten in three FA Cup visits to Anfield.

The fifth-round games will be played on the weekend of 18-19 February.
