ALL GONE PETE TONG
Liverpool fans wouldn’t have been thanking former star Peter Crouch for drawing them away to Manchester United in the FA Cup fourth round.
But fans of Chelsea, among others, couldn’t have been happier to see the Premier League’s leaders drawn together.
Meanwhile the Blues were handed a home tie against Luton.
Sergio Reguilon showed his humble side as he offered a signed shirt to Marine’s Josh Hmami, tweeting “football is way more than just fancy stadiums”.
And having embraced the FA Cup in such a big way in his debut season, the Spaniard will surely be hoping to be picked for their fourth round tie away to Gareth Ainsworth’s Wycombe at Adams Park.
It was a great experience for us as well. Football is way more than just fancy stadiums ⚽️❤️. It will be my pleasure to sign it for you 🤝 https://t.co/POO7fFT1CB

This is the moment West Ham’s FA Cup tie at Stockport tonight was interrupted by an impromptu fireworks display outside the ground.
But Mike Dean and Mark Noble seemed to take a light-hearted approach and enjoy the spectacle.
It later turned out that the display was a gesture of support to a 15-year-old fan who had been run over by a police car responding to a 999 call on Boxing Day.
West Ham ultimately ran out 1-0 winners through a late header from Craig Dawson, setting up a fourth round tie at home to Doncaster.
LUCK OF THE DRAW
Manchester City will fancy their chances of going far in the FA Cup after being drawn against League Two Cheltenham Town away.
And many on Twitter were keen to point out theyears of enviable draws Pep Guardiola’s men have had in the competition.
In fact, since Guardiola took charge of City in 2016, they have only played a top six team twice – both semi-finals against Arsenal.
PULL UP A CHAIR
Wycombe faced Tottenham at the same stage in the FA Cup just four years ago, and it was an epic.
The Chairboys – then in League Two – looked like they were about to pull off a huge upset when they went into half time 2-0 up.
And despite Son Heung-min and Vincent Janssen levelling the scores, Garry Thompson came off the bench to put them ahead again going into the dying minutes.
But goals from Dele Alli in the 89th minute and an incredible 97th minute winner from Son ensured it was Spurs who progressed.

TIPPING HIS HAT
It wasn’t just Chorley who were handed an exciting FA Cup fourth round tie.
Luton Town are off to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea in round four.
And boss Nathan Jones said: “It’s a great draw against a wonderful Premier League side. We love testing ourselves and this will be a massive, massive test.
“We are delighted we avoided someone else from our league and it gives us something different to experience.
“To go to such a prestigious Premier League club will be a special occasion which we’ll be looking forward to.”
LIV AND KICKING
Football fans will be treated to two straight weeks of Man Utd vs Liverpool.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men visit Anfield this Sunday at 4.30pm for a huge title clash.
And the FA Cup fourth round draw has ensured they will do it all again the following weekend at Old Trafford in the FA Cup.
PEEEEP! THAT’S FULL TIME!
West Ham edge past Stockport 1-0 to set up a fourth round tie with Doncaster Rovers.
The winner of that game will then face either Manchester United or Liverpool in the fifth round.
Here is a look at the West Ham opener.
It’s taken West Ham United the best part of 83 minutes, but the Hammers have finally taken the lead against Stockport.
Craig Dawson has headed David Moyes’ side in front at Edgeley Park.
Chorley boss Jamie Vermiglio had this to say on his side’s fourth round tie with Wolves:
“That is what we really wanted, Premier League opposition.
“And there is a bit of history because in 1986 Chorley played Wolves at home and beat them 3-0.
“So we just need to do that again. It is a big draw for everyone. I am made up with that.”
Stockport’s clash with West Ham has a proper Sunday League feel about it, with the boggy pitch making this a proper cup tie.
There’s just over fifteen minuted left to play with extra time looming.
STOCKPORT COUNTY 0-0 WEST HAM
There’s less than half an hour left to play in the tie between Stockport and West Ham, with the score still 0-0.
The longer it stays level, the more Stockport will fancy their chances of nicking a result.

LAST TIME OUT
Tottenham and Wycombe have recent FA Cup history, with the two sides meeting in the fourth round four years ago.
It was an absolute belter of a game, with Wycombe leading until the 89th minute before goals from Dele Alli and a 97th minute Son Heung-Min winner sent the Chairboys crashing out 4-3.
Here’s a look at some reaction from the Wycombe Wanderers camp after the Chairboys were drawn against Tottenham in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
The half time whistle has just gone, with the deadlock yet to be broken in Stockport.
There’s 86 places between the sides in the football league, but it’s currently Stockport County 0-0 West Ham.
Could we have another FA Cup shock on our hands?
CAN’T HELP BUT WATCH
A first half firework display outside Edgeley Park momentarily delayed Stockport County’s FA Cup third round clash with West Ham.
Mark Noble and Mike Dean couldn’t miss out the display.
WE MEET AGAIN
Jose Mourinho returns to Wycombe Wanderers, this time with Spurs, fourteen years after he failed to beat the Chairboys at Adams Park with his star-studded Chelsea side.
Wycombe held Chelsea to a 1-1 draw in the League Cup semi-final, before losing the second leg 4-0 at Stamford Bridge.
Shrewsbury Town’s path to the FA Cup quarter finals is a tricky one, but the clubs Twitter account seems optimistic that the League One side can get the job done.
The Shrews are still to play their third round tie against Southampton after the initial fixture was postponed due to a coronavirus outbreak, and would then face Arsenal in the fourth round should they beat the Saints.
Following that, a fifth round tie would be against the winners of the fiurth round game Chorley and Wolves.
Chorley and Wolves famously met in the FA Cup first round in 1986, after Wolves had fallen to the fourth tier after successive relegations.
The original tie at Chorley ended 1-1 before another 1-1 draw at Molineux.
The teams then faced off in a second replay at a neutral venue, Burnden Park in Bolton, with Chorley eventually running out 3-0 winners.
BIGGER FISH TO FRY
Chorley were originally scheduled to host Gateshead in the National League North on January 23.
Instead they now host Premier League and Europa League quarter finalists Wolves in the fourth round of the FA Cup…
FOURTH ROUND TIES
Swansea host Nottingham Forest, with Barnsley to face Norwich in another all Championship match.
Millwall have been handed a home clash against Bristol City, while Brighton host Blackpool.
Sheffield United reached the quarter-finals last season, and Plymouth now stand in their way in their quest to reach the latter stages yet again.
The winner of either Stockport or West Ham face Doncaster, with Brentford tasked with knocking out Leicester.
