Elsewhere, Manchester City travel to League Two Cheltenham Town while Tottenham Hotspur, who beat eighth-tier minnows Marine on Sunday amid media interest from as far afield as Australia and Russian Federation, have been given another kind draw at Championship strugglers Wycombe Wanderers - but could well then face a tough trip to Everton in the following round.

Meanwhile, City will face League Two outfit Cheltenham Town, as their extremely kind run of opponents continue.

The most romantic fourth-round tie is undoubtedly non-league Chorley's home game with Premier League Wolverhampton Wanderers.

League Two Crawley, who thrashed Leeds 3-0 in the third round, travel to Bournemouth.

The draws were made for the 4th and 5th round ties before Monday night's clash of Stockport County and West Ham United.

Should Chorley pull off another upset, they could face holders Arsenal in the fifth round.

Chorley manager Jamie Vermiglio told BBC Sport: "That's what we really wanted, Premier League opposition, great".

Brighton v Blackpool, Wycombe v Tottenham, Fulham v Burnley, Sheffield United v Plymouth, Chelsea v Luton, West Ham v Doncaster, Brentford v Leicester, Everton v Sheffield Wednesday.

Not only does it allow Pep Guardiola's side an easy passage towards the final, but it also means he can rest players for the league, as well as cruising through matches without as much risk of injury and fatigue. City will take on fourth-tier Cheltenham and Tottenham plays Wycombe, which is in last place in the second-tier Championship.
