FA Cup fourth round draw: Manchester United to discover next opponent today

The FA Cup fourth round draw will take place on Sunday and Manchester United will discover their next opponent as Erik ten Hag bids to end the club’s six-year title drought.

Man United advanced to the next round of the competition following a comfortable 3-1 win over Everton in the third round at Old Trafford on Friday night.

Antony opened the scoring, Coady scored an own goal and Marcus Rashford scored from the penalty spot in injury time to close what many described as a dominant performance from Ten Hag’s men.

Manchester United will continue their cup quest when they host Charlton Athletic at the Theatre of Dreams next week in the Carabao Cup quarter-final but before that, the FA Cup draw will take place this weekend.
