Sheffield Utd Vs MCFC - Players' Lounge Sunday 27th Jan K.O. 8.00pm

After squeezing past West Ham in last week's replay, City make the short journey across the Pennines to take on *spits* Bryan Robson's Sheffield United in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

The Bramall Lane side saw off Bolton Wanderers 1-0 at the Reebok in the third round, but find themselves in 14th place in The Championship and 9 points away from the play-off places. Their last outing was a 2-0 defeat away to bitter rivals Wednesday and their home record is not particularly impressive, having recorded five wins, five draws and four defeats from their 14 league matches so far this season. James Beattie currently tops the Blades' scoring charts with 13 league goals.

This match has been chosen by the BBC in England, so MCFC Dubai will be meeting as usual from 6pm to watch the action live on the big screen (with English commentary) at the Players' Lounge in Bur Dubai's Chelsea Hotel. The match kicks off at 8pm (Dubai time) and is preceeded by Tottenham's visit to the swamp at 6pm.
