The English FA Cup fourth round draws were held Monday night with none of the EPL top 6 facing each other.

It did look like this would happen as the draw went on and the pot still had Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City, and Liverpool.

Holders, Manchester United continue in their bid for a 13th FA Cup trophy with a home game against Wigan Athletic, the 2013 champions.

A Liverpool win in the replay against Plymouth Argyle would see them host Wolves at Anfield. Plymouth gaining a draw was one of the highlights of the FA Cup games and a reminder of the upsets that litter FA Cup games histories.

Chelsea will also enjoy home advantage again after being handed a west London derby against Championship side Brentford.

The Premier League champions Leicester City, who beat Everton, will be away to Derby County.

After surviving a mostly forgettable first-half to beat Preston 2-1, Arsenal would be away to the winners of the Southampton-Norwich City game.

Manchester City, 5 nil victors against West Ham, are away to the winner of the Crystal Palace-Bolton game.

Tottenham, who beat Aston Villa 2-0, would be at home against Wycombe Wanderers.

The next round of games would be played from January 27-30, 2017.
