[ MORE: FA Cup odds, JPW’s picks ] These Magpies play in a 900-seater stadium with a capacity of 3,700, quite a difference from the Premier League’s outfit with the same nickname. Newcastle United was eliminated by Arsenal. But Nuno Espirito Santo isn’t about the romance of the cup. He’s worried about the pitch quality at Victory Park. “We already had photos taken of the pitch and we know that the FA have made an effort to try and preserve the pitch by covering,” Espirito Santo said. “We are aware of all that, but we don’t know the weather conditions. We cannot expect anything other than having a very difficult pitch to play football and we have to adapt to it.
. Like always, we’ll play the strongest squad that we can to compete well against Chorley.”

There are also some all-Premier League ties in the fourth round.
Southampton will host Arsenal early Saturday before Burnley heads to Fulham on Sunday.
It’s all a prelude to Man United and Liverpool’s latest match-up, this time at Old Trafford at Noon ET on Sunday.
We can hope for better than a wasteful Liverpool and a late-arriving United, as we saw in last week’s Premier League tango.
