The two most successful sides in FA Cup history are going head-to-head in a fourth round tie that has us salivating.

Those who say that the FA Cup has lost its magic shouldn't need much persuasion to cast their minds back 20 years (yes, 20 years!) to one of the all time great FA Cup goals. That mazy Ryan Giggs run and thundering finish past David Seaman to take United through to the 1999 Cup Final deep into injury time after Peter Schmeichel's penalty save. It was the kind of moment to give goosebumps to even neutral football fans.
Skip forward two decades and both clubs are in very different places to back then. Manchester United have gone from a treble winning side to club in crisis. Although Ole Gunnar Solskjær's prolific start to his time as manager has helped to steady the ship and get the best out of the likes of Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford. While 2017 FA Cup winners Arsenal are finally starting to emerge from the post-Arsene Wenger era into a team to be reckoned with. They may sit at fifth in the Premier League, but the potent duo of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are turning their fortunes around.
Considering their league positions, it feels like this year's FA Cup is as important as ever to Arsenal and Manchester United. Below we're going to talk you through the best ways to watch the FA Cup action in the UK and the rest of the world so you can ensure you can easily live stream the match.
