London - Chelsea were handed a home game with Stoke City in the only all-Premier League tie pulled out of the hat in the FA Cup fourth-round draw on Sunday.

Jose Mourinho's side, who qualified for round four with a 2-0 victory at Championship side Derby County, will be seeking to make amends for a 3-2 loss at Stoke in the sides' last meeting in December.

The Premier League's heavyweight clubs were kept apart in the draw, with leaders Arsenal drawn at home against third-tier Coventry City after seeing off north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in in the third round.

Liverpool, who beat Oldham Athletic 2-0 on Sunday, will visit either second-tier Bournemouth or fourth-tier Burton Albion.

Swansea City's reward for sensationally eliminating Manchester United, meanwhile, will be a trip to either Birmingham City, Bristol Rovers or Crawley Town.

Fourth-tier Rovers and third-tier Crawley are still to play their second-round tie, which has twice been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, with the winners set to face Championship side Birmingham.

The victors in that game will then face Swansea, who stunned United 2-1 at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Third-division Sheffield United, who knocked out Aston Villa, face a home game against another top-flight team after being drawn to face either Norwich City or Fulham.

Draw for the fourth round of the English FA Cup, made at Wembley Stadium in London on Sunday (ties to be played on January 25-26):
Sunderland v Kidderminster Harriers or Peterborough United
Bolton Wanderers v Cardiff City
Southampton v Yeovil Town
Huddersfield Town v Charlton Athletic or Oxford United
Port Vale or Plymouth Argyle v Brighton and Hove Albion
Nottingham Forest v Ipswich Town or Preston North End
Southend United v Hull City
Rochdale v Macclesfield Town or Sheffield Wednesday
Arsenal v Coventry City
Stevenage v Everton
Wigan Athletic or Milton Keynes Dons v Crystal Palace
Chelsea v Stoke City
Blackburn Rovers or Manchester City v Bristol City or Watford
Bournemouth or Burton Albion v Liverpool
Birmingham City or Bristol Rovers or Crawley Town v Swansea City
Sheffield United v Norwich City or Fulham
