Liverpool and Man City's differing fortunes in FA Cup highlighted

Elsewhere, Manchester City travel to League Two Cheltenham Town while Tottenham Hotspur, who beat eighth-tier minnows Marine on Sunday amid media interest from as far afield as Australia and Russian Federation, have been given another kind draw at Championship strugglers Wycombe Wanderers - but could well then face a tough trip to Everton in the following round.

Liverpool and United will clash for two consecutive weekends with the top two also facing off in the Premier League on Sunday.

As I revealed on Twitter on Monday, Arsenal are the only "big six" side they have in the FA Cup since the start of the 2017/18 season, with endless winnable fixtures handed to them.

The two giants are now locked at the top of the league.

The most romantic fourth-round tie is undoubtedly non-league Chorley's home game with Premier League Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The victors in the Manchester United v Liverpool showdown will face West Ham or Doncaster, while either Wycombe or Tottenham will travel to the winners of the Everton v Sheffield Wednesday tie.

Crawley Town's reward for their giant-killing of Leeds United is a trip to Bournemouth.

"And there's a bit of history because in 1986, Chorley played against Wolves at home and beat them 3-0, so we just need to do that again". Ties to be played February 9-11.

Defending champion Arsenal must travel to the victor of the third-round match between Southampton and Shrewsbury, a date for which has yet to be decided.
