Arsenal could face Man City in FA Cup | Man Utd play Ince’s Reading

Arsenal will face a huge FA Cup fourth-round tie against Manchester City at the Etihad if they beat Oxford United on Monday night.

City thrashed Chelsea 4-0 on Sunday and will now play the Gunners on the weekend of the 28/29 January – if Mikel Arteta’s side can see off League One Oxford.

Elsewhere in the fourth round, former Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince – who won seven major trophies during a six-year spell with the club – will return to Old Trafford as manager of Reading, while Liverpool will travel to Brighton if they win their replay at Wolves following a controversial draw at Anfield on Saturday.

Tottenham – who have not won the FA Cup since 1991 but may feel the draw has opened up given Chelsea’s exit and City’s potential clash with Arsenal – travel to Championship side Preston, while 2021 winners Leicester face a trip to League Two’s Walsall.

Wrexham will welcome Sheffield United, while Sheffield Wednesday – who beat Newcastle in the third round – host Scott Brown’s Fleetwood.
