FA Cup 4th Round Summary

This weekend saw a number of surprises. Tottenham continued its worrisome slide, losing to Crystal Palace 2-0. Manchester United continued its impressive form, defeating Arsenal 3-1.

Premier League mid-tablers West Ham and Everton lost to League One (third tier) AFC Wimbeldon and Championship side Millwall FC, respectively. At this stage, wins are a huge benefit to non-Premier League clubs, as they earn €180,000 for advancing.

Coversion of a a 90th-minute penalty earned Doncaster Rovers their first 5th round appearance in 63 years as they beat Oldham Athletic 2-1. Wolverhampton stormed back from an o-2 deficit to tie League One’s Shrewbury.

All 4th round ties will hold a replay game on February 5th to determine who advances.
