London: Bradford will have the opportunity to spring another FA Cup surprise after the third tier giant killers were drawn against Sunderland or Fulham following their sensational fourth round win at Chelsea.
Phil Parkinson`s side caused one of the all-time great FA Cup upsets when they came from two goals down to win 4-2 at the Premier League leaders on Saturday.
And top-flight side Sunderland and second tier outfit Fulham, who replay next week after a goalless draw on Saturday, will both be wary of suffering the same fate as Jose Mourinho`s men following Monday`s fifth round draw.
League Cup finalists two years ago, Bradford last faced Sunderland in a 3-0 defeat in December 2003, while they have to go back to 1994 to find their last meeting with Fulham, which ended in a goalless draw.
If Manchester United can get past fourth tier Cambridge in their replay they will travel to the winners of Preston and Sheffield United, while holders Arsenal host Middlesbrough, the Championship high-fliers who sprang a shock of their own with a 2-0 win at Manchester City on Saturday.
Liverpool and Bolton will replay for the right to go to Crystal Palace, while Leicester and Aston Villa meet in an all-Premier League affair.
West Bromwich Albion face West Ham at home, while Stoke, 4-1 winners at Rochdale on Monday, will travel to Blackburn, who enjoyed a fine victory over Swansea in the last round.
Derby play host to Reading in an all-Championship tie.

Crystal Palace v Liverpool/Bolton
Arsenal v Middlesbrough
Aston Villa v Leicester
West Brom v West Ham
Bradford v Sunderland/Fulham
Blackburn v Stoke
