Big teams kept apart in FA Cup

English football's top sides were kept apart in the draw for the fourth round of the FA Cup, with Manchester United and defending champions Arsenal paired with Sky Bet Championship opponents.

Arsenal — seeking a third straight FA Cup title — will play at home to Burnley and United was pitted against Derby County, who are second in the Championship, in today's draw.

Manchester City will be away at either fourth-tier Wycombe Wanderers or relegation-threatened Barclays Premier League side Aston Villa. Liverpool will host West Ham United if they get past Exeter City in a replay.

Non-League team Eastleigh, the lowest-ranked team left in the draw, will be rewarded with a home match against Leeds if they beat Bolton Wanderers.

The fourth round takes place from January 29 to February 1.

Wayne Rooney and Manchester United have been drawn away to Derby
