Manchester City to visit Tottenham in FA Cup fourth round

Holders Manchester City will visit Tottenham in the FA Cup following Monday’s fourth-round draw, while Manchester United could face a trip to non-league Eastleigh.

Pep Guardiola’s side will go to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for a mouthwatering fourth-round clash on the last weekend of January, as they look to retain the trophy they won via a 2-1 triumph over neighbours United at Wembley Stadium in June.

City and Spurs have already played out one of the most absorbing games of the 2023-24 Premier League season, drawing 3-3 at the Etihad Stadium in December as Dejan Kulusevski headed a stoppage-time leveller for Ange Postecoglou’s men.

Meanwhile, Erik ten Hag’s United face a trip to either Newport County or National League side Eastleigh – one of just two non-league teams left in the competition – after beating Wigan Athletic 2-0 on Monday.

Eastleigh fought back to force a third-round replay against Newport on Saturday despite playing most of the game with 10 men, as a Chris Maguire penalty cancelled out James Clarke’s opener.

Sixth-tier Maidstone United, the lowest-ranked team left in the competition, will visit Championship promotion hopefuls Ipswich Town, while Chelsea will host Aston Villa in another enticing all-Premier League contest.

Liverpool’s reward for Sunday’s 2-0 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium is a home meeting with either Norwich City or Bristol Rovers, who drew 1-1 on Saturday.

The draw also threw up a potential first Black Country derby since 2021, with West Bromwich Albion set to host the winner of Wolves’ replay against fellow Premier League side Brentford.

Wolves will host the Bees at Molineux next week after Tommy Doyle’s stunning strike earned them a 1-1 draw at the Gtech Community Stadium on Friday, when fellow midfielder Joao Gomes was sent off after just nine minutes.

Elsewhere, Fulham will host Newcastle United and Sheffield United will face Brighton and Hove Albion in two further all-Premier League ties, while West Ham and Nottingham Forest will meet if they win their respective third-round replays against Bristol City and Blackpool.
