Let’s now take a closer look at each of the 16 FA Cup Fourth Round Fixtures and give you our Full Time Result tip for each game.

FA Cup Fourth Round – Fixtures

All kick off times shown are 3pm GMT unless otherwise stated.

Friday 22nd January

  • Chorley Town v Wolverhampton Wanderers – 7.45pm

Chorley overcame a young Derby side 2-0 in the last round, but I fear they may come unstuck here against a Wolves side that has suffered from erratic form of late but who will know this competition represents their only prospect of silverware this season. You won’t get value odds backing the visitors to win, but this game is not likely to be an upset. Tip – Wolves to win 1/10.

Saturday 23rd January

  • Southampton v Arsenal – 12.15pm

Southampton knocked out Shrewsbury on Tuesday night to progress to face Arsenal in what is a great game to start Saturday off. The Saints have just two wins in the last ten against Arsenal and the teams drew 1-1 at the Emirates back in December. The Gunners form is much improved of late and I think they will go through, but it may take extra time and penalties to decide this one. Tip – Draw 23/10.

  • Brighton v Blackpool

Brighton got a massive win away at Leeds last weekend and they should head into this game with more confidence, despite not having won a Premier League game at home this season. Blackpool will make it tricky and have beaten West Brom already in the third round, but I think this battle of the seaside resorts will go the way of the home side. Tip – Brighton to win – 4/9

  • Millwall v Bristol City

The Lions have a pretty decent FA Cup pedigree, and they face a team just seven places above them in the Championship table. Millwall were 2-0 winners when the teams met back in December in Bristol and I think being on home turf will also be in their favour. This will be close but I think the home team will squeak through. Tip – Millwall to win – 11/10.

  • Barnsley v Norwich City

Barnsley overcame Tranmere in the last round at home but they face a much more difficult test against Championship leaders Norwich. Daniel Farke’s men look set for a quick return to the Premier League this season and I fancy them to get the job done here against a workmanlike Barnsley team. Tip – Norwich to win – 7/5.

  • Sheffield United v Plymouth Argyle

The Blades came through 3-2 away to Bristol Rovers in the last round and they face another lower league opponent here in League One Plymouth. This time, having home advantage will be more beneficial for Sheffield United and I think that despite their poor league form, they will progress in this competition. Tip – Sheffield United to win – 2/5.

  • West Ham v Doncaster Rovers

David Moyes West Ham have been in good form this season and they remain in good form at the moment unbeaten in five and at home to a talented Doncaster side, but one that cannot match the quality that West Ham possess all over the field. This should be a comfortable home win for the Hammers. Tip – West Ham to win – 3/10.

  • Bournemouth v Crawley Town

Crawley were the big giant killers in Round 3, defeating Leeds 3-0 at home to earn a tie away to Bournemouth. The Cherries though are going well in the Championship and I think that they have far too much quality in their side to let this one slip. This game is in doubt however due to illness in the Crawley camp so may have to be rearranged. Tip – Bournemouth to win – N/A

  • Swansea City v Nottingham Forest

Swansea are flying high in the Championship in second spot while Forest lie in a disappointing 19th place. That said, both teams are unbeaten in their last five games so this won’t be a pushover for the Swans. The Welsh side were 1-0 winners when the teams met at the City Ground in November and I think a similar scoreline is on the cards here. Tip – Swansea City to win – 11/10.

  • Cheltenham Town v Manchester City – 5.30pm

Cheltenham are an incredible 16/1 to win this game against a Manchester City who always seem to draw lower league teams in cup competitions. City are 1/10 favourites to land the win here and in truth, I cannot see any conceivable way that they do not win this game very comfortably. Tip – Manchester City to win – 1/10.

Sunday 24th January

  • Chelsea v Luton Town – 12pm

Chelsea’s erratic form continued with a loss at Leicester in midweek. They take on a Luton side doing well in the Championship this season but who don’t have anywhere near the quality of squad Chelsea have. Lampard will rest players here but even so, I would expect a comfortable Chelsea victory. Tip – Chelsea to win – 1/6.

  • Fulham v Burnley – 2.30pm

Another all-Premier League clash pits two sides at the bottom end of the table against each other. Both Fulham and Burnley are in decent form heading into this game, but both will have prioritised Premier League survival ahead of FA Cup glory. As such, I think this will be decided by one goal and I think it will go in Burnley’s favour. Tip – Burnley to win – 9/4.

  • Brentford v Leicester City – 2.30pm

Brentford are more than capable of causing an upset here should Leicester rest too many star players for this game. I can’t see Brendan Rodgers doing that though given the excellent form they are in and the opportunity this cup competition represents for them. This may take extra time, but I am backing the Foxes to progress. Tip – Draw – 14/5.

  • Manchester United v Liverpool – 5pm

After a 0-0 draw in the Premier League last weekend, these two teams meet once again at Old Trafford. Seven of the last 10 games between the two have finished as draws and I think that is likely the Full Time Score here, but I would just shade United as winning this one on penalties. Tip – Draw – 12/5.

  • Everton v Sheffield Wednesday – 8pm

It’s been a long time since Everton had a good FA Cup run but this season under Carlo Ancelotti, they could do that. A tie against the winner of Monday night’s game lies in wait for the winner and I expect that to be the home side. Tip – Everton to win – 1/3.

Monday 25th January

  • Wycombe Wanderers v Tottenham Hotspur – 7.45pm

After defeating Marine on the road in the last round, Spurs reward is another road trip to Wycombe. The Championship side have struggled this season and even if Spurs rest a number of key men for this game, I would still expect them to progress comfortably. This game is another that may be in doubt due to illness. Tip – Tottenham to win – N/A
