Foreign-based Egyptian duo Mohamed Elneny and Ahmed Elmohamady are set for an FA Cup fifth-round clash after Arsenal have been drawn with Hull City for the third season running.

Arsenal, who signed Elneny during the winter transfer window, will host championship side Hull City on the weekend of 20 and 21 February. Elneny made his debut with Arsenal in their 2-1 FA Cup home win over Burnley on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Hull -- who are currently on top of the championship table -- made it to the fifth round after beating Bury 3-1 away from home, in a match that saw Elmohamady play the whole 90 minutes.

The meeting will be the third consecutive FA Cup clash between the two teams, having met in the competition's final two seasons ago and in the third round last year.
