Tottenham Hotspur draw Leicester City for Fourth Round of the FA Cup

Tottenham Hotspur haven't advanced to the next round of the FA Cup yet, but if they do, they will host Leicester City.

Tottenham Hotspur and Burnley are playing right now in the Third Round of the FA cup, but because the English FA likes to do things a little weirdly, we already know who the winner of this tie will face. Tottenham (or Burnley, whatever) will play host to Leicester City in the Fourth Round. That match will be played on either the 24th or 25th of January.

Leicester beat newly managerless club Newcastle on Saturday to advance to the Fourth round. The Foxes used a Leonard Ulloa goal to down the Magpies. The FA cup fourth round match will come sandwiched between the two legs of the Capital One Cup semifinal against Sheffield United.

Tottenham played Leicester recently at the King Power Stadium and needed a late Christian Eriksen goal to come away with a victory. Should Tottenham advance to the next round, they will undoubtedly face a very stern test.
