After the excitement of last weekend’s FA Cup third round, we look to what’s ahead in the fourth round…
Arsenal vs Burnley – Last year this would have been a Premier League clash, and after seeing off Championship toppers Middlesbrough, they’ll travel to the Emirates to see if they can put together a cup run.
Colchester vs Tottenham/Leicester – After a cupset in the third round that saw them beat Championship Charlton, can Colchester go one step further and beat in form Premier League sides Leicester City or Tottenham Hotspur?
Derby vs Manchester United – A test of how well this Derby side will fair against Premier League opposition, the place they hope to be next season. After beating Hartlepool 2-1 can they overturn an erratic United side?
Northampton/MK Dons vs Chelsea – Northampton Town did well to hold the Dons to a draw over the weekend, but if they were to see their Championship opposition off they would face Champions Chelsea. MK Dons are known for their giant-killing prowess, after smacking Manchester United 4-0 in the Capital One Cup a few years ago.
Wycombe/Aston Villa vs Manchester City – Wycombe managed to hold a desperate Villa side to a 1-1 draw at home, but Premier League favourites Manchester City wait for them if they were to see off the Villains.

Arsenal v Burnley
Bury/Bradford City v Hull City
Carlisle/Yeovil v Everton
Colchester v Tottenham/Leicester
