Manchester United's reward for beating Liverpool on Sunday is an FA Cup fourth-round clash at League One side Southampton.

The Saints, who beat Premier League side Blackpool 2-0 on Saturday, will face Sir Alex Ferguson's men at St Mary's on the weekend of January 29/30.

Chelsea will travel to Everton if they overcome Ipswich on Sunday, while the winners of the replays between Doncaster and Wolves and Stoke and Cardiff will also meet.

Leeds and Arsenal will replay next week with a home tie against League One promotion hopefuls Huddersfield awaiting the winner, while West Ham will be at home to Nottingham Forest and Watford play Brighton.

If Manchester City beat Leicester on Sunday they will head to Notts County, while Swansea will play Leyton Orient and Burton Albion will travel to Burnley.

The winner of Monday's game between Crawley and Derby will head to Torquay, while Sheffield Wednesday will be at home to the winner of the replay between Wycombe and Hereford.
