10 January 2017
The fourth round draws of the Emirates FA Cup were held on Monday night. Holders, Manchester United, Premier League leaders, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspurs were handed relatively easy fixtures against non-Premier League sides.
Manchester United hosts 2013 winners, Wigan at Old Trafford. Chelsea is drawn to meet West London rival, Brentford at the Bridge while high flying London club, Tottenham Hotspurs hosts Wycombe Wanderers.
Twelve-time winner, Arsenal faces a tricky fixture at either Norwich or fellow Premier League side, Southampton. It would be recalled that the Saints ended Arsenal’s run in the EFL Cup earlier this season.
Liverpool that is scheduled for a replay after a disappointing goalless draw against Plymouth on Sunday could meet Wolverhampton in the next round.
Pep Guardiola’s City will meet either Crystal Palace or Bolton Wanderers. Premier League Champions, Leicester is away at Derby County, a team scheduled to meet Liverpool in the first semifinal of the EFL Cup.
The fourth round of the 2017 FA Cup will be played between 27 and 30 January, 2017.
