The FA Cup returns for fourth-round action with only 32 teams remaining in the oldest club competition in the world.
The iconic image of Liverpool's Luis Suarez handling the ball to score against lowly Mansfield Town still lingers from a third round that promised much but which fell short of expectations. Less than a month has passed since the uninspiring fourth-round draw, but in that time whole seasons have either fallen apart or have taken flight.
For many clubs the fourth round now represents a watershed moment that may define how the rest of their season will turn out.
Clubs facing relegation like Aston Villa, Reading and Wigan need to win to put some momentum back in the season. Arsenal's season is falling apart as Tottenham Hotspur's moves into another gear. Liverpool are hoping for another return to Wembley while both Manchester sides, City and United, will be keen not to give a psychological edge to each other as the Premier League title race heats up.
Here, Bleacher Report looks at six games to watch across a weekend that may be one of the most important of the season.
