Leeds to face Tottenham after FA Cup fourth-round draw

Grayson's Leeds have lost just two games this season

Leeds have been rewarded with an away tie against Tottenham Hostpur in the fourth round of the FA Cup after their superb 1-0 win at Manchester United.

Championship side Preston, who beat Colchester 7-0 in the third round, face Cup holders Chelsea at Deepdale.

Reading will face Brian Laws' Burnley at home in the fourth round following their brilliant comeback win at Anfield where they beat Liverpool 2-1.

The ties will be played the weekend of the 23 and 24 January.

"It's a good draw again," said Leeds manager Simon Grayson.

"We're up against a top Premiership team and a top manager and we'll approach that as we have done for the Manchester United game - with the respect that they deserve.


"But we've got a few league games in between and that's our bread and butter."

Arsenal, who came from behind to beat West Ham 2-1 at Upton Park, face a tricky trip to Stoke.

Manager Arsene Wenger said: "Who we play doesn't really matter. We need to turn up with a good performance. That is what matters."

Brighton boss Gus Poyet, who was part of the Chelsea team which beat Aston Villa 1-0 in the 2000 FA Cup final at Wembley, was excited by the thought of a trip to Villa Park for the League One side.

"Everyone at the club, I have to say, they wanted to play away against a Premiership club so I think it's perfect for everyone," said Poyet.

"It's going to be tough but it's important for the players to have the opportunity to play against Aston Villa."
