Manchester City have been drawn against the winner of Crystal Palace and Bolton in the FA Cup fourth round after the Blues overcame West Ham 0-5 in the third round. Both clubs are forced to play a replay after the two teams drew 1-1.

Pep Guardiola’s side now travel to the victor of the replay on the last weekend of January with the opportunity to secure a place in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

With City been drawn away from home, it’s now the fifth successive domestic cup draw that the Blues have been drawn away from the Etihad Stadium. Nonetheless, City have already overcome Palace away from home as Guardiola’s side beat the Eagles 1-2 at Selhurst Park in November.

On the other hand, City have not competed against Bolton since February 2012 when the Blues ran out 3-0 winners. Bolton were subsequently relegated at the end of the campaign which saw City become Premier League champions.

All three teams will hope to be victorious to keep alive their dream of a place in Wembley’s final on May 27th.
