The draws for the fourth and fifth rounds of the FA Cup have been made this evening. Following the brilliant ties we were given in round three, we now have several more mouth-watering matches to come such as Manchester United v Liverpool and Cheltenham Town v Manchester City.
FA Cup Draw
The Red Devils, one of the lowest-ranked teams left in the competition, have been handed an away tie against Bournemouth as a reward for dispatching their top-opposition.
We also have two non-league teams left in the draw. National League North side Chorley knocked out a youthful Derby County side after the Rams were left with no option but to play a mixture of U18s and U23s following a Covid-19 outbreak at the club.
It means the sixth-tier side have reached the fourth round for the first time in their history, where they will host top-flight side Wolverhampton Wanderers.
National League side Stockport County also remain, but they are Monday’s feature game against Premier League opposition in West Ham United, so haven’t quite secured a place yet.
The fifth round draw has also been made in order to aid scheduling given the shorter timeframe the season has this year.
It means that, technically, both Chorley and Stockport have been part of the fifth round draw – something neither would have deemed likely at the start of the campaign.
