FA Cup fourth round draw: Fixtures, schedule, dates and TV matches confirmed for competition

Manchester City were handed a trip to Premier League rivals Tottenham in the standout tie of the FA Cup fourth-round draw.

Reigning top-flight champions City have been involved in several classic matches with Spurs in recent years, including a 3-3 draw at Etihad Stadium in December 2023 and a 4-4 draw over two legs of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals in 2019, when Tottenham won on away goals.

Maidstone United, of the National League South, celebrated reaching the third round for the first time since their reformation in 1992 by winning at home to League One side Stevenage, and their reward is a trip to Championship promotion hopefuls Ipswich Town.

Manchester United won 2-0 at League One opponents Wigan Athletic and will now visit fourth-tier Newport County.
