FOOTBALL: Aaron Mooy's Huddersfield Town had the perfect draw in the fifth round of the FA Cup but the Socceroos midfielder will not be allowed to play.

The Terriers will line up at home against Manchester City in the last-16 clash but Mooy will have to sit on the sidelines as he is on loan from City.

The Australian could have played for his loan side if the parent club had agreed but Huddersfield chief executive officer Julian Winter confirmed Mooy was ineligible.

Meanwhile, fifth-tier club Sutton United has been rewarded for its defeat of Leeds United with a home tie against 12-time winner Arsenal.

"This will be like our World Cup final,” Sutton manager Paul Doswell said.

"It's as big as that for us - the profile of the club has risen so much in these last six to eight weeks.”

Fellow non-league side Lincoln City faces a trip to Burnley as the English Premier League clubs were kept apart in the draw.

Holders Manchester United, which also has 12 cup wins, will travel to Blackburn Rovers, while EPL leader Chelsea also visits a Championship club after being paired with Wolverhampton Wanderers, who upset Liverpool in round four.

Tottenham Hotspur is at second-tier Fulham, while League One side Oxford United visits Middlesbrough and Millwall hosts Leicester City or Derby County, who face off in a replay next week.
