FA Cup draw: Liverpool, Chelsea and Leicester get away ties in fourth round


Manchester City beat Watford 6-0 in the 2019 FA Cup final

Premier League leaders Liverpool will play at League One side Shrewsbury in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Holders Manchester City face Fulham, while Chelsea also play second-tier opponents, away at Hull City.

Leicester, second in the Premier League, meet Championship Brentford.

The winners of the Manchester United v Wolves replay will play either Watford or Tranmere Rovers, with those sides also needing a replay after a 3-3 draw.

They were due to meet on Tuesday but the game has been rescheduled for Thursday, 23 January because of a waterlogged pitch.

Arsenal’s reward for beating Championship leaders Leeds 1-0 is a trip to Bournemouth.

The matches will be played between Friday 24 and Monday 27 January.

Sixteen Premier League teams remain in the competition, while Northampton Town, ninth in League Two, are the lowest-ranked side who will definitely be playing in the last 32 and they are at home to Derby County.

Carlisle United, 21st in League Two, are the only other side from the fourth tier left in the tournament, although they face a third-round replay at home against Championship side Cardiff City. The winners of that game take on Reading.

Birmingham City’s home is St Andrew’s but they will be the away team at their own stadium when they face Coventry, who are sharing the ground with Blues this season.
