Manchester United and Chelsea get home FA Cup ties

The winners of last season’s FA Cup, Manchester United, will host Wigan Athletic who won the FA Cup in 2013 in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

The draw contained two derbies as Leicester City were drawn away to East Midlands rivals Derby County. Elsewhere, Chelsea will host Brentford in a west London derby.

The big shock from the third round was League One Millwall beating Premier League AFC Bournemouth. Their reward is that they will be at home again to another Premier League side, Watford.

The lowest ranked side left in this seasons FA Cup, Sutton United, will host Championship side Leeds United. However, Sutton will need to win their replay against AFC Wimbledon to progress.

Accrington Stanley, who are the lowest ranked side definitely through to the fourth round will travel to the North East to take on Premier League side Middle­sbrough. The only previous meeting between the two sides was in the 2013/14 League Cup 1st round tie, also at the Riverside, saw Accrington pull off a shock 2-1 victory.

All ties are scheduled to be played from 27-30 January.
