Man Utd draw Arsenal away in huge FA Cup tie

Manchester United face a huge test to get through the fourth round of the FA Cup having been drawn to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. Just three points separates the two sides in the league this season with Unai Emery’s men having the slight advantage.

It was honours even last time the two clubs met, with Jesse Lingard equalising for United in an entertaining score draw at Old Trafford in what turned out to be one of Jose Mourinho’s last games in charge of the club.

Perhaps the most famous Arsenal v United FA Cup tie of all was the semi final in 1999, when Ryan Giggs scored an unforgettable solo goal to win it, in the famous Treble season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping the Reds can go all the way this year to equal Arsenal’s record of 13 FA Cup trophies. An FA Cup triumph would also no doubt enhance Ole’s chances of becoming permanent manager this summer.

United enter the fourth round after a convincing 2-0 victory over Reading at Old Trafford, thanks to goals from Juan Mata and Romelu Lukaku.

Fourth-round ties will take place between 25 and 28 January.

Other notable ties include:

AFC Wimbledon v West Ham

Millwall v Everton

Chelsea v Sheffield Wednesday or Luton

Man City v Burnley

Crystal Palace v Tottenham
