Chelsea facing lower league round four trip

CHELSEA have been rewarded for Saturday’s 5-1 demolition of Southampton with a trip to Southend United or Brentford in the FA Cup fourth round.

Arsenal will head to the south coast to face Championship side Brighton if they can overcome Swansea City in a replay.

West Ham and Fulham could be on course for the only all-Premier League London derby, but only if they both win their replays, away to Manchester United and Blackpool respectively.

Tottenham will face lower league opposition for the second round in a row, travelling to the winner of Leeds and Birmingham’s replay, while Championship high-fliers Crystal Palace will host top-flight champions Manchester City if they beat Stoke City at the second time of asking.

Kieron Dyer’s last minute equaliser for QPR has earned them a home tie against Sheffield Wednesday or MK Dons if they can see off West Brom at the Hawthorns, with fellow strugglers Aston Villa away to Millwall.

The lowest ranked London club still left in the hat, Leyton Orient, will host Barnsley if they can first see off Hull City in their replay.
