With many of the competition’s third round ties postponed or due for replays, the FA Cup fourth round draw is one full of ifs and buts, however there are some tasty ties on the horizon.

Fresh from beating bitter rivals Tottenham yesterday, Arsenal will face Coventry at the Emirates Stadium, in a tricky clash. Everton also face a potentially problematic fixture against lower league opposition, with the Toffees set to travel to Stevenage.

Manchester United or Swansea face an uncertain opponent, with one of Bristol Rovers, Birmingham or Crawley awaiting them, while Liverpool could meet either Bournemouth or Burton if they get past Oldham at Anfield.

Chelsea could be set for an all top tier affair if they ease past Derby, with Stoke potential opponents at Stamford Bridge. Manchester City will have to negotiate their replay with Blackburn to meet either Bristol City or Watford at home.

Meanwhile defending champions Wigan could meet Crystal Palace if they move past the MK Dons, while the lowest ranked team left in the competition, Macclesfield, will be set for a clash with Rochdale if they beat Sheffield Wednesday.
