FA Cup Fourth-Round Draw: Manchester United Face Wigan

FA Cup and MeManchester United will continue their defence of the FA Cup with another home tie against Championship opposition and another reunion.

After beating Jaap Stam’s Reading in the third round, United were drawn against Wigan, managed by their former reserve-team coach Warren Joyce.

Joyce was connected to Old Trafford for more than a decade in different coaching roles before taking over at the DW Stadium in November. Wigan lie 23rd in the Championship and he will hope for a happier return than former defender Stam, whose Reading side were beaten 4-0.

United are going strong in all cup competitions. They are into the EFL Cup semi-finals, starting tonight against Hull, and in the last 32 of the Europa League.

Premier League leaders Chelsea have a local derby at home to Brentford, which should see a return to Stamford Bridge for Josh McEachran. ‘Buzzing,’ tweeted McEachran after the draw.

If they can get past Plymouth in a third-round replay, Liverpool will be at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers, who caused an upset when they knocked out Stoke on Saturday.

Derby, in form under Steve McClaren, were rewarded for toppling Premier League West Brom with an East Midlands derby at home against Leicester.

League One Millwall, having beat top-flight Bournemouth 3-0, may fancy their chances of another upset with Watford drawn at the Den.

League Two Wycombe were excited to secure a trip to Tottenham.

    Arsenal could lose, Liverpool will win but only just and Klopp would be judged for next season perfomance.

      For me comparing both teams chances of winning or losing i would say arseal have the big odd and liverpool, can fail becuse they fail when it maters most check their record

    Liverpool is slowly getting into form and Arsenal has played relatively well in the past few weeks, too… so it would be very nice to see both of them compete for the FA Cup finals.

    However, I’m not really feeling optimistic of their chances to go that far since most top-flight English squads this year have a knack for under-performing in crucial matches.

      As Liverpool v Arsenal cup final would be a great final. But as you mentioned, the FA Cup this season has been full of upsets and surprises and a Bradford v Villa final would not surprise anyone either.
