FA Cup

The MOTD2 host talks the FA Cup Fourth Round!

It's almost time for the fourth round of the FA Cup, the stage of the competition where things get serious!

To get the lowdown on all of the action ahead, we had a chat with MOTD2 and 5 live Sport's Mark Chapman!

Hi Mark! Are you excited for the FA Cup fourth round?

Mark says: "Yes! What’s great about the earlier rounds is that you get to go to places that you wouldn’t normally go to on your week by week job! I find that exciting!"

Are there any fourth round games that have taken your eye?

Mark says: "Notts. County v. Swansea is the one because, well firstly, that’s the one I’m going to! Secondly, it’s the one that stands out as being where the shock could be!"

Where else do you think we might see a shock result?

Mark says: "I suppose one of the other one on Saturday is the Peterborough v. Leicester game!"

Mark says: "I don’t necessarily see the shocks coming at Yeovil v. Man. United or Newport v. Spurs. I just think the two PL sides there will be too strong!"

Do you think we might see a shock FA Cup winner this year?

Mark says: "No, I don’t think so. I think that top six, the ones who are left in, are just too strong. Even if they meet each other in round five or the quarter-finals, you would still expect, in the end, two of them to make it all the way to the final."

Are there any players you’re specifically looking forward to seeing this weekend?

Mark says: "Well, I’d be very interested if Alexis Sanchez makes his Man. United debut at Yeovil. I think there’ll be a lot of people wanting that to happen!"

Mark Chapman will present the FA Cup 4th round action on BBC Radio 5 live. The 4th round is live across BBC TV, Radio and Online from 26-29th January.

Which will be the next top team to get knocked out of the FA Cup?
