FA Cup action continues this weekend with Chorley and Wolves kicking off fourth-round fixtures tonight.

Manchester United and Liverpool meet again in the pick of the round with holders Arsenal facing a tough test on the road against Southampton.

In a change of pace, teams head into battle this weekend knowing which two teams they could possibly face in the fifth round, which is set to begin on Wednesday 10 February.

Chorley vs Wolves – Friday, 7:45pm

Can Chorley keep their dream FA Cup run alive? After seeing off Derby County in the third round, the non-league side are priced at 18/1 to cause another shock at home to Wolves.

Nuno Espirito Santos’ side have managed just one win in their last seven – their third-round win over Crystal Palace.

Southampton vs Arsenal – Saturday, 12:15pm

Saints have won just one of their last nine meetings with Arsenal who have a spring in their step once again, having won five of their last six in all competitions.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang rediscovered his scoring touch on Monday with two against Newcastle – the Gunners skipper doesn’t mind an FA Cup brace either, scoring twice against Manchester City and Chelsea in last season’s semi-final and final.

Sheffield United vs Plymouth Argyle – Saturday, 3pm

A 3-2 win over Bristol Rovers in the third round and a subsequent first league win of the season against Newcastle lifted the mood at Bramall Lane after a morbid first-half of the season.

But a poor performance at home to Tottenham midweek has given the Blades another reality check – if they needed one. Plymouth come into this fixture with just one defeat in their last seven.

Chelsea vs Luton – Sunday, 12pm

A perfect opportunity for Frank Lampard to steady the ship with a win? Chelsea responded to a comprehensive defeat to Manchester City at the turn of the year with a thumping third round win over Morecambe.

Their league form continues to suffer however with defeat to Leicester – their fifth league loss in their last eight – on Tuesday piling the pressure on the Blues boss again.

Manchester United vs Liverpool – Sunday, 5pm

For the second time in a week, the two old rivals meet. Following that drab affair at Anfield, there is hope for a slightly more open affair in the cup as focus shifts away from the Premier League title race for a few days.

Wycombe vs Tottenham – Monday, 7:45pm

Jose Mourinho has fielded strong sides in cup ties throughout the season and that is unlikely to change on Monday as the club look to end a 13-year wait for silverware.

Wycombe have struggled for goals this season with just 16 in their 23 league games with Carlos Vinicius looking to follow up on his third round hattrick at Marine against Championship opposition.
