The Premier League takes a back seat again this weekend as the 4th round proper of the FA Cup takes precedence.

There is certainly the potential for a cup upset, given that there is only one fixture that is an all-Premier League tie.

Mark Hughes' Stoke City side travel to his old west London stomping ground for a Sunday afternoon clash against Chelsea.

One name is already in the hat for the 5th round, Arsenal comfortably seeing off a spirited Coventry side 4-0 in one of the two Friday night fixtures.

In the other, Nottingham Forest were held to a goalless draw at home by Preston North End and will need to do battle once more at Deepdale, date/time to be confirmed.

Let's take a look at predictions for all of the remaining ties, and more....

Tie of the round

The standout tie of the 4th round is the all-Premier League clash between Chelsea and Stoke City.

The Blues have a superb recent record in the competition, having won it no less than four times in the last seven years.

The first of those was during Jose Mourinho's first spell at the club in 2007, and the Portuguese would surely like to add another winner's medal to his collection.

Mark Hughes goes back to Stamford Bridge in the hope of putting one over on his old employers.

It will be no easy task given that, aside from the most recent meeting between the teams, you have to go back to the 1974/75 season to find a Stoke victory against the west London outfit.

Hughes can perhaps take heart from the Potters' recent run to the final in 2011, but they will have to improve on their current form of four losses in the last six, per whoscored.com.
