The FA Cup Fourth Round takes charge of the English sporting weekend and it’s looking good for the teams at the sharp end of the Premier League table – except for one.
Manchester United kicked off the Cup weekend on Friday night when they hosted Championship promotion hopefuls Middlesbrough at Old Trafford, desperate to put a turbulent week behind them on the pitch.
But it ended in disaster with a penalty shootout defeat following a 1-1 draw, not to mention a spot kick miss from Cristiano Ronaldo in regular time.
League One Plymouth make the trip up to London to take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday lunchtime, with the Blues having already seen off non-league Chesterfield in Round Three.
Sunday lunchtime pits Liverpool against Championship Cardiff, as the pair kick off the first of three games on the day at Anfield.
Leicester then go to the City Ground for an East Midlands derby against Nottingham Forest, before Boreham Wood of the National League make the trip to Bournemouth.
Another non-league side are out to produce the shock of the competition so far on Saturday, as National League North outfit Kidderminster Harriers welcome David Moyes’ West Ham to Aggborough.
EPL leaders Manchester City will be confident of going one step further to reclaiming the title they last won in 2019, with Championship leaders Fulham the visitors to the Etihad Stadium.
There are also a hat-trick of all-Premier League contests on Saturday, headed up by Frank Lampard’s first match in charge of Everton at home to Brentford.
Tottenham, meanwhile, have visitors from the south coast as Brighton stand between Spurs and the Fifth Round, while Wolves go up against struggling Norwich.
Across the River Thames there’s another potential banana skin as Crystal Palace play Hartlepool, with Southampton also at home to lower league opponents in the shape of Coventry.
Huddersfield and Barnsley face off in a Yorkshire derby at the John Smith’s Stadium, with Cambridge looking to get one over second tier Luton.
Two more all-Championship ties polish off the Round Four action, as Stoke host Wigan and Peterborough United welcome Queens Park Rangers to London Road.
