After a frantic group of third-round fixtures this weekend, the draw for the fourth round of the FA Cup was made on Sunday morning. 

Defending champions Chelsea were drawn on the road against the winner of the replay between League Two's Southend United and League One side Brentford

Manchester City were also drawn on the road for their fourth round tie as they will visit either Selhurst Park or the Britannia Stadium, depending on who wins the replay between Crystal Palace and Stoke. 

Another EPL side, Tottenham Hotspur, will have to wait until the replays are over to find out where they will be traveling during the weekend of January 26. 

Spurs were drawn against the winner of the Leeds United versus Birmingham City replay.

After earning a replay late on Saturday, Manchester United will have a chance to host former player Dimitar Berbatov and Fulham if both clubs win their respective replays against West Ham and Blackpool.

Both Merseyside clubs will once again take to the road in fourth round action. 

Liverpool will visit Boundary Park to take on League One side Oldham Athletic, while Everton will travel to the home stadium of the winner of the Bolton vs. Sunderland third round replay.
