Don’t sleep on it this weekend! Despite all the Premier League action this week, the football frenzy continues with the FA Cup, amongst other football competitions.
The Premier League will take the back seat for the FA Cup this weekend as teams battle for national honors. Most of the games will feature both Premier League and English Championship sides. And although the Fourth Round will kick-off on Friday, there’s still unfinished business from the Third Round of FA Cup games.
While others play their Fourth Round FA Cup games, Manchester United will have to wait for the winner between Watford and Tranmere to know who their next opponent is. Both sides played out a 3-3 draw, with the fixture now requiring a replay to determine which of the two teams will progress to the fourth round.
In other games, reigning champions Manchester City will face Fulham on Sunday. This will be the fourth meeting between the two sides in the competition and a first meeting in over 100 years, in the competition. The last time both sides met in this competition, in 1914, the game ended in a 2-0 win for Manchester City.

While Sergio Aguero needs to score just one more goal to be outright fourth-highest scorer in the competition, Arsenal have to outscore Bournemouth to progress to the Round of 16 stage. Other all-Premier-League clashes to be played this weekend include:
- Southampton vs. Tottenham
- Burnley vs. Norwich
Inn clashes involving Premier League teams and Championship sides, one to look out for is the game between Hull City and Chelsea. Having won just two of their last five games in all competitions, it may seem as if Chelsea’s travel may end in yet another draw, or worse, a defeat.
However, the Blues have a solid record against Hull City. Apart from winning their last five meetings against Hull, they scored 13 in those five, while keeping a clean sheet in four of those five games.

West Ham welcome West Brom in what is set to be a major clash for a number of reasons, chief among them being the head-to-head record between both sides. Two of the last five meetings between both sides have ended in a draw, with West Ham winning twice.
QPR up against Sheffield Wednesday, Millwall taking on Sheffield United and the Reading vs. Cardiff clash are all games involving Championship sides.
