But first, Villa must beat Wycombe.

Aston Villa have today found out that they will possibly be facing in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Villa were held 1-1 by Wycombe on Saturday the 9th of January which means that the VIllans will have to overcome 'The Bucks' at Villa Park on the 19th of January. A goal by Micah Richards was not enough to see Aston Villa into the fourth round as Wycombe were awarded a penalty that was cooly converted by Joe Jacobsen.

Manchester City need no introduction and will be a real test for Aston Villa, should they overcome the plucky Wanderers in their FA Cup third round replay. City are more than likely one of the favourites to take the FA Cup home and represent a lucrative gate for Wycombe, should they defy the expectations of Aston Villa fans.

The draw could certainly have been easier for Aston Villa fans, who might believe they are already out - based on recent results.
