Manchester City will face Arsenal in the FA Cup fourth round, provided the current Premier League leaders navigate their way through.

There is one guaranteed all-Premier League tie from the draw made on Sunday afternoon, with Brighton hosting either Liverpool or Wolves after a replay Jurgen Klopp won’t want.

But Manchester City versus Arsenal would be the eye-catching tie if the latter make it past Oxford on Monday evening, after the former dispatched Chelsea with ease.

National League outfit Wrexham’s reward for their 4-3 win at Coventry on Saturday is a home match against another Championship side, Sheffield United.

The other National League teams remaining in the contest are Chesterfield and Boreham Wood.

The winners of the Chesterfield’s replay against West Brom will play Bristol City or Swansea away, while Boreham Wood or Accrington will take on Cardiff or Leeds at home.

The draw, the ties from which are set to take place from January 27-30, also included a trip for Tottenham to Preston and Manchester United entertaining Reading.

League Two Walsall are at home against Leicester, and there is also a visit from top-flight opposition for League One Derby as they host West Ham.

Stevenage tie will head to Stoke after coming from behind to beat Aston Villa, while Fulham and Southampton welcome Sunderland and Blackpool respectively.

After knocking out Newcastle, Sheffield Wednesday play fellow third-tier outfit Fleetwood at Hillsborough, and another, Ipswich, face Championship leaders Burnley at Portman Road.

The other ties see Luton or Wigan host Grimsby, while Blackburn will play either Forest Green or Birmingham at Ewood Park.
