The fourth round begins on Friday night as Wolves travel to Chorley, the lowest-ranked team left in the competition.

Holders Arsenal will look to continue their recent resurgence with a testing trip to Southampton before a Premier League meeting three days later.

Leicester and Manchester City are both in fine form ahead of their trips to Brentford and fourth-tier Cheltenham respectively.
