Manchester City’s quest to retain the FA Cup will continue with a home tie against Championship side Fulham in the fourth round.

The blues swept past League Two side Port Vale on Saturday, and will be wary of the visitors, who beat City’s Sunday opponents Aston Villa in the last round.

It will be just the fourth time the two teams have met in the FA Cup, with the last FA Cup meeting coming in January 1914, which the blues won 2-0 at home. The two previous meetings ended with a 1-1 draw in Manchester in February 1908, with Fulham winning the replay in London 3-1.

The tie is to be played on the weekend of 25th January.
