Cambridge to host Man United in fourth round

Topics

Cambridge United, the lowest ranked side left in the FA Cup, will host 11-time winners Manchester United in the fourth round.

Louis van Gaal's men overcame League One opposition Yeovil Town in the third round on Sunday and they will come up against fourth-tier opposition in Cambridge in their next tie.

Cambridge overcame Luton Town 2-1 in their third-round clash on Saturday and Richard Money's men, who were promoted via the Conference play-offs last season, will now have the chance to take on the Van Gaal's expensively assembled Premier League squad.

Holders Arsenal, who defeated Hull City 2-0 in a re-run of last year's final in the third round at the weekend, will travel to Championship outfit Brighton and Hove Albion.

Top-flight leaders Chelsea have been given a home tie against either Millwall or Bradford City, who drew 3-3 in an entertaining encounter first time round.

Meanwhile Manchester City, who had to come from behind to see off Sheffield Wednesday in the last round, have been given another home tie against Championship opposition in Middlesbrough.

The ties will be played on the weekend of January 24 and 25.
