FA Cup 4th round draw sets up a HUGE matchup

Manchester United and Arsenal will lock horns in the 4th round of the FA Cup after the 4th round draw last night. The Red Devils beat Reading 2-0 to qualify for the 4th round while a brace from Joe Willock and a goal from Alex Iwobi saw Arsenal beat Blackpool 3-0.

Manchester United and Arsenal previously locked horns in December with the match ending 2-2. The match will take place at the Emirates Stadium this month but the date is yet to be decided.

Reigning champions Chelsea will take on the winner of next Tuesday’s replay between Sheffield Wednesday and Luton Town at Luton.  League Two club Newport County who shocked Leicester City take on Middlesbrough. The other League Two club Oldham Athletic will play Doncaster Rovers.

Barnet who is the only fifth-tier team left in the competition will take on Championship side Brentford. Wolves who beat Liverpool last night will take on either Shrewsbury Town or Stoke City.

The 4th round matches will take place on the weekend of January 25-28. The dates will be decided when the four third round replays are over.
