Most of the Premier League big boys have safely made it through to the FA Cup fifth round.

Manchester United beat rivals Liverpool in Sunday’s teatime match, while a Tammy Abraham hat-trick helped Chelsea to a 3-1 win over Luton earlier in the day.

Manchester City also beat lower-league opposition, although they were given a scare by League Two Cheltenham before eventually winning 3-1.

One club that hasn’t made it is Arsenal, the current holders who lifted the trophy for a record 14th time last season. The Gunners slipped to a 1-0 defeat at Southampton.

The final non-league side, Chorley, from the National League North, are also out after losing 1-0 to Wolves on Friday evening.

The draw for the FA Cup fifth round was made two weeks ago, at the same time as the fourth round draw.

Now, with nearly all fourth round ties complete, the final fixture list for the next stage of this year’s competition is coming together.
