The Blades got to round five by beating Ipswich Town 4-3 at home. United took a 3-0 lead with two goals from birthday boy Michael Brown and one from Phil Jagielka. However the Horses hit back three goals in six minutes when Thomas Gaardsoe, Tommy Miller (penalty) and Darren Bent all struck to equalise. However United spoiled the Town party when Paul Peschisolido was on hand to snatch home the winner in the 90th minute.

Naturally the media will be searching for all F.A. Barclaycard Premier League ties and there is one definite tie as league leaders Arsenal travel to Old Trafford as they play there olde enemy in the form of Manchester United. There could be another though if Liverpool beat Crystal Palace and Leeds beat Gillingham in there respective cup replays.

The game will be played on Saturday 15 February 2003 with a 15:00pm (3pm) kick-off unless the game is selected for Sky Television.

  • Manchester United v Arsenal
  • Southampton or Millwall v Norwich City
  • Crystal Palace or Liverpool v Gillingham or Leeds United
  • Wolverhampton Wanderers v Rochdale
  • Fulham v Burnley
  • Stoke City v Chelsea
