That is all we have time for tonight, thanks for following our coverage of the FA Cup fourth round draw.

IBTimes UK will be back on Wednesday evening to bring you live updates from the Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg clash between Chelsea and Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.

Until then, it's goodbye.

Liverpool vs West Brom is one of two confirmed all-Premier League ties, with Southampton also hosting Watford.

Chelsea could play Newcastle and Bournemouth vs West Ham is also a real possibility.

Not much reward for either Nottingham Forest or Coventry after their respective giant-killings, though Mansfield will be relishing the chance to face dominant Premier League leaders Manchester City if they can see off Cardiff in a home replay.

Peterborough will be hoping to meet Leicester rather than Fleetwood, while Notts County will be relatively pleased to be taking on either Wolves or Swansea.

The most recent of United's three FA Cup meetings with Yeovil came at Huish Park back in 2015, when goals from Ander Herrera and Angel Di Maria secured a 2-0 third-round win for Louis van Gaal's side.

Yeovil vs Manchester United

A somewhat uninspiring draw saved by two plum home ties for League Two sides Yeovil and Newport against top-flight giants Manchester United and Tottenham respectively.

Spurs have won all four of their previous meetings against the reformed Welsh side, the last of which came all the way back in 1960.

That concludes the draw for the fourth round...

Sheffield United vs Preston

Norwich or Chelsea vs Newcastle

Newport vs Tottenham

Hull vs Nottingham Forest

Bournemouth or Wigan vs Shrewsbury or West Ham

Middlesbrough vs Brighton or Crystal Palace

Southampton vs Watford

Millwall vs Rochdale

MK Dons vs Coventry

Cardiff or Mansfield vs Manchester City

Carlisle or Sheffield Wednesday vs Stevenage or Reading

Yeovil vs Manchester United

Notts County vs Wolves or Swansea

Huddersfield vs Birmingham

Peterborough vs Fleetwood or Leicester

Liverpool vs West Brom

Here we go...

The draw is about to get underway at the Amex. Dennis Wise and Rio Ferdinand are at the controls.


One rather unsavoury piece of FA Cup news today involved Leeds forward Samu Saiz accepting a six-game ban for spitting at Robbie Willmott during yesterday's surprise loss at Newport.

He's issued an apology that reads as follows...

I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely apologise to the players, staff and supporters of Leeds United for my behaviour in yesterday's game at Newport County AFC.

I would also like to apologise to Newport County AFC and Robbie Willmott for my actions.

I accept the punishment handed to me by The FA.

My actions are inexcusable, I give my word to all those connected to Leeds United Football Club that I will learn from this situation and never repeat it.

I am grateful for the support I receive from our fans and I understand that I am a role model to the next generation of Leeds supporters, I will ensure that my behaviour moving forward reflects that.


Think they mean M23, but nevertheless...

The latest installment of the M23 derby between Brighton and Crystal Palace comes at the Amex Stadium tonight, but before then is the small matter of the draw for the fourth round.

Proceedings are expected to get underway at approximately 19.10 GMT.

While a succession of goalless draws hint that it may not have been a vintage weekend of FA Cup football in terms of sheer quality, a number of third round shocks - plus stronger team selection from several top-flight clubs - proved that perhaps we should resist the temptation to write off the old competition too soon.

Nottingham Forest claimed the biggest scalp of all on an electric Sunday afternoon clash at the City Ground, with a brace from Eric Lichaj and a pair of penalties ensuring that holders Arsenal suffered their first defeat at that stage of the competition since 1996.

The cup safety blanket has been well and truly removed from Arsene Wenger, who had never previously experienced a third-round defeat throughout his 22-year tenure in England.

League Two Coventry City's upset of Premier League strugglers Stoke contributed heavily to Mark Hughes finally losing his job, while Newport stunned Leeds, Peterborough scored three late goals to vanquish Aston Villa and Fleetwood and Shrewsbury earned replays away to Leicester and West Ham respectively.

Nottingham Forest

Brentford also came unstuck against Notts County, MK Dons prolonged QPR's cup misery and Yeovil - the lowest-ranked team left in the hat - ensured that there would be no repeat of Bradford's cup heroics of 2015-16. Mansfield, Carlisle and Stevenage also deserve credit for earning replays against Championship teams.

The rest of the so-called big boys came through unscathed, with a dream debut goal from Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk sinking Everton in the 230th Merseyside derby and Manchester United eventually breaking down stubborn Derby thanks to efforts from Jesse Lingard and Romelu Lukaku.

Manchester City and Tottenham proved too strong for Burnley and AFC Wimbledon, though Chelsea's progression is not yet assured after they were held to a tedious draw at Norwich.
