LONDON - Brief reports of FA Cup fourth-round matches involving Premier League teams played over the weekend:
Played on Sunday:
CARDIFF CITY 0 ARSENAL 0
Last season's runners-up Cardiff battled all the way to hold the 10-times champions, with goalkeeper Peter Enckelman keeping out the best of the Premier League side's efforts.
Cardiff also had chances and hit the bar late on through Ross McCormack in what could be the last Cup game staged at Ninian Park, the ground Cardiff are leaving after 99 years at the end of the season.
LIVERPOOL 1 EVERTON 1
The Mersey rivals drew 1-1 for the second time in a week and again Steven Gerrard was on target.
After putting the hosts ahead in Monday's Premier League game, the captain earned a Cup replay with a low shot early in the second half on Sunday after Joleon Lescott scored with just about Everton's only chance of the match.
Played on Saturday:
CHELSEA 3 IPSWICH TOWN 1
Michael Ballack scored twice and Frank Lampard hit the other as the Premier League side reached the fifth round for the 11th successive season.

DONCASTER ROVERS 0 ASTON VILLA 0
Championship strugglers Doncaster Rovers played above themselves and hit the bar twice although Villa went close with efforts from Gabriel Agbonlahor and Curtis Davies, while Agbonlahor also hit the bar late on.
HARTLEPOOL UNITED 0 WEST HAM UNITED 2
West Ham wrapped up a straight-forward victory with two goals at the end of the first half.

HULL CITY 2 MILLWALL 0
Hull made it through to the fifth round for the first time in 20 years as goals from Michael Turner and Ian Ashbee earned a 2-0 win over the League One (third division) side.
