It’s FA Cup fourth round weekend – and we have some cracker games to get stuck into.
We’ve already had Middlesborough shockingly beating Manchester United in a penalty shootout on Friday night, and today we’re set to see even more drama today.
National League North side Kidderminster will look to cause an upset against West Ham, Chelsea play host to Plymouth Argyle, and an all-Premier League tie later will see Brighton take on Tottenham in the late kick-off.
So, to help you through a mammoth day of FA Cup football, we decided to create a live blog to keep you abreast of everything going on during today’s 12 games.
26′ – Chris Deeley on Chelsea – Plymouth
“Chelsea starting to knock on the door, but every time they look like doing something they give the initiative away again.
“CHO was set free, ran down a blind alley for a goal kick instead of doing anything with it. Couple of corners, either missing everyone or straight onto Plymouth heads. Credit Argyle though, they’re very solid in their deep formation,”
25′ – Sterling goes close from a free kick
It’s all Kidderminster at the moment.
Sterling’s free kick from the edge of the box just whistled wide of the post.
19′ – GOALLLL!!! KIDDERMINSTER HAVE TAKEN THE LEAD
Unbelievable! The non-league side are one up!

12′ – Here’s how Plymouth took the lead

10′ – Kovacic hits the crossbar!
Chelsea almost nab an equaliser, but are denied by the crossbar. Great strike from the Croatian.
8′ – Kidderminster chance
West Ham have been the better side so far, but it’s Kidderminster who have mustered the first half-chance of the game, with Sam Austin’s strike from the edge of the box forcing Areola into a save.
8′ – GOALL!!!!!! Plymouth have taken the lead!
Free kick whipped in from the left that former Carlisle man Macauley Gillesphey might’ve got a little flick on as it flew into the far corner. What a start for the Argyle.
1′ – West Ham 0-0 Kidderminster
The thing first thing that happened in the game? Kurt Zouma hoofing the ball 80 yards up field and out for a goal kick.
Yep, it’s going to be one of those games.
12.30pm – KICK OFF
Kidderminster vs West Ham and Chelsea vs Plymouth are now underway!
12.25pm – Chelsea fans happy with starting XI
– Only one change from the side that beat Spurs before the break. Christensen for Silva (who just got back the other day). Honestly I’m good with it. If youth wasn’t gonna be played today, I’d rather us continue to try & build consistency w/ a set group.
