Monday night’s fourth round FA Cup draw threw up one outstanding behemoth of a tie, with the competition’s two most successful clubs, Arsenal and Manchester United, set to play at the Emirates.

The two sides, who have 25 FA Cup titles between them, last met in the competition in March 2015, with ex-United striker Danny Welbeck netting the winner for Arsenal at Old Trafford in a 2-1 win.

Current FA Cup holders Chelsea, who beat United 1-0 at Wembley in May, will face either Sheffield Wednesday or Luton while Premier League holders Manchester City will play Burnley at the Etihad.

Wolves, who knocked out Liverpool on Monday night, will travel to Shrewsbury or Stoke.

The draw also threw up a few more all top-flight ties, with Crystal Palace hosting Tottenham in a tasty London derby while Watford will travel to Newcastle, if the Magpies can beat Blackburn.

Here are all the ties…

  • Swansea v Gillingham
  • Wimbledon v West Ham
  • Shrewsbury or Stoke v Wolves
  • Millwall v Everton
  • Brighton v West Brom
  • Bristol City v Bolton
  • Accrington v Derby or Southampton
  • Doncaster v Oldham
  • Chelsea v Sheffield Wednesday or Luton
  • Newcastle or Blackburn v Watford
  • Middlesbrough v Newport
  • Manchester City v Burnley
  • Barnet v Brentford
  • Portsmouth v QPR
  • Arsenal v Manchester United
  • Crystal Palace v Tottenham

Quite a decent draw overall!
