The FA Cup fourth round will see Manchester City meet either Crystal Palace or Stoke while defending champion Chelsea faces a trip to either Southend or Brentford.

Current Premier League leader Manchester United, who, courtesy of a late Robin van Persie strike, rescued a draw against West Ham on Saturday, will take on Fulham or Blackpool, should they get the better of the Hammers in the third round replay at Old Trafford on January 16.

The winner of the replay between Swansea and Arsenal, who played out a 2-2 draw at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday, will head to the Amex stadium to play Gus Poyet's Brighton, who comfortably defeated a below-par Newcastle in the early kick-off on Saturday, reports
Andre Villas-Boas' Tottenham, who defeated Coventry at White Hart Lane on Saturday with Clint Dempsey grabbing two goals in the 3-0 win, face a tricky trip to either Birmingham or Leeds while struggling Aston Villa take on Millwall.

Liverpool, who take on Mansfield on Sunday, will head to Oldham Athletic and Boundary Park should it get the better of the Stags, while Merseyside rival Everton, who visits Cheltenham Town on Monday, will face either Bolton or Sunderland if it comes out victorious against the League Two side.
