FA Cup 4th round draw, dates, ball numbers and who Man Utd could face

On Monday night Manchester United will know who they face in the FA Cup fourth round with 16 ties set to be announced.

The Reds are just three games away from a Wembley final, with caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sure to have a go at winning the oldest cup competition in football.

Solskjaer won the FA Cup twice as a player in 1999 and 2004, therefore, his experience could be key to United’s chances this season. Winning such a feat would certainly end the season on a high or act as a bonus if he can lead the Reds to a top four finish.

United are out of the running for the title and are unlikely to win the Champions League, not to mention already being knocked out of the League Cup.

However, a 2-0 win saw United overcome Reading on Saturday but tonight Solskjaer will discover who their opponents will be in the fourth round.

The last time United won the FA Cup was 2016 – with then manager Louis van Gaal sacked in the aftermath and replaced by José Mourinho. Unfortunately for the Portuguese tactician he was never able to deliver the same feat, although he did win the Europa League and League Cup.

That said, Mourinho did come close. His United side was beaten 1-0 in the final last season with Eden Hazard’s penalty separating the two teams in 90 minutes.

When is the FA Cup 4th round draw?

The draw for the next round will take place after Wolves take on Liverpool, approximately 10pm. Viewers will be able to watch live on BBC One.

When will the fourth round take place?

Between Friday 25 January and Monday 28 January.
