Man Utd to face Arsenal in FA Cup fourth round


Manchester United will face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in the fourth round of this season’s FA Cup.

We progressed into the next round with a comfortable 2-0 win over Reading on Saturday. The Gunners saw off League One opponents Blackpool, 3-0 at Bloomfield Road later in the day.

First half goals from Juan Mata and Romelu Lukaku eased our progression into the fourth round in what was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first FA Cup match in charge of us following his appointment as caretaker manager last month. The Norwegian has won all five of his games in charge of Manchester United.

The last time we faced Arsenal in the FA Cup was in March 2015 when Arsene Wenger’s side were 2-1 winners at Old Trafford.

The draw for the fourth round was made after Wolverhampton Wanderers eliminated Liverpool, 2-1 at Molineux this evening. The ties will take place during the weekend of 26-27 January.
