Giant killing dreams of the FA Cup

From the behemoths in the English game such as Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, to the relative minnows of Chorley, Doncaster, and Crawley Town, many will be looking to where a massive upset in a high-profile match could lie.

The fourth round is scheduled to take place over the weekend of 23 January and the fifth round will follow on Wednesday 10 February, although there is always the chance that this could be hampered by the current coronavirus pandemic hitting England hard.
