The top teams namely Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham have been handed easy fixtures after the FA Cup 4th Round draw was held on Monday evening.

Premier League leaders Manchester City will travel to the winner of the third round replay between English Championship side Cardiff City and Mansfield while city rivals Manchester United will also travel to the lowest ranked side left in the FA Cup, Yeovil Town.
