The losing sides will be knocked out of the tournament and the winners will step into the next stage of FA Cup 2007-2008. Manchester United vs Arsenal match is now the center of all attention, though all the matches are expected to be competitive. Manchester United defeated Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 in the fourth round on their way to the fifth round. Arsenal also projected a big margin victory over Newcastle United in the fourth round of FA Cup. Arsenal defeated Newcastle United 3-0 and since then they have been in impressive run. However, Manchester United just received a humiliating defeat to crosstown rivals Manchester City in the league.

Five premier league teams were crashed out of the tournament in the fourth round. It is sure that either Manchester United or Arsenal will be out of the tournament from this round. Now, let us see if the other premier league team can get into the next round of FA Cup.
