LONDON -- The Premier League's top teams were kept apart in the fifth-round draw for the FA Cup on Sunday, while Oldham was rewarded for its impressive win over Liverpool with a home match against Everton.

Manchester United and Manchester City, the top two teams in the Premier League, will play Reading and Leeds at home, respectively, and Arsenal will host Blackburn.

Defending champion Chelsea will have to travel to Middlesbrough if the European champions beat third-tier Brentford in a fourth-round replay.

Luton, which beat Norwich on Saturday to become the first non-league team in 24 years to beat topflight opposition in the FA Cup, plays Millwall -- a winner over Aston Villa on Friday.

The games will be played on the weekend of Feb. 16-17.
