Acid test for new Manchester United boss as they are drawn against bitter rivals, Arsenal, in the FA cup

The Emirates FA Cup fourth round draw was made at Molineux on Monday (7th January, 2019) evening, straight after Wolverhampton Wanderers had knocked out Liverpool.

With former Wolves duo Robbie Keane and Carl Ikeme making the draw, there’s no shortage of intriguing ties to look forward to later in January.

There are three all Premier League games, as well as two London derby games among others with Brentford travelling to Barnet and West Ham United heading south-west to AFC Wimbledon.

Newport County’s reward for beating Leicester City is a trip to face Middlesbrough, of course managed by former County player and Newport-born Tony Pulis.

And OIdham Athletic will be on the road again following their win over Fulham at Craven Cottage, with a game against Doncaster Rovers at the Keepmoat Stadium.

It will be an acid test for new Manchester United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, as his club has been drawn against their seasoned rivals, Arsenal.

The fourth round will take place across the weekend of Friday 25 to Monday 28 January, with winning clubs picking up £180,000 after the FA doubled the prize fund for the 2018-19 campaign.
