FA Cup draw: Arsenal host Manchester United in round four

SoccerNews in General Soccer News 7 Jan 2019


Arsenal will host Manchester United in the fourth round of the FA Cup, with Manchester City at home to Burnley.

Unai Emery’s side were 3-0 winners at Blackpool on Saturday after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer maintained his 100 per cent start to life as Jose Mourinho’s successor courtesy of the Red Devils’ 2-0 beating of Reading.

Premier League champions City also faced Burnley at the Etihad Stadium in round three of last season’s competition, where they fell behind to an Ashley Barnes goal before running out 4-1 winners.

Holders Chelsea will face either Sheffield Wednesday or Luton Town at Stamford Bridge, while Liverpool’s conquerors Wolves will travel to either Shrewsbury Town or Stoke City – veteran striker Peter Crouch having spared the Potters with an equaliser in a 1-1 draw at New Meadow.

League Two sides Oldham Athletic and Newport County dumped out Premier League opposition in the form of Fulham and Leicester City over the weekend.

Oldham’s reward is a trip to Doncaster Rovers, while Tony Pulis’ Middlesbrough will entertain Newport County.

Barnet are the only remaining non-league side having beaten Sheffield United of the Championship 1-0 and must now play host to Brentford.

The only other confirmed all-Premier League tie is a London derby between Crystal Palace and Tottenham at Selhurst Park, although Newcastle United will be at home to Watford if they manage to beat Blackburn Rovers in a replay.

Fourth-round ties will be played between January 25 to 28.
