Liverpool and Brighton lead the way when it comes to the FA Cup shootout records of the last 32

The Premier League duo boast seven wins from seven between them. Planet Sport looks at how the rest of the fourth-round sides match up.

The FA Cup has only seen one shootout this season, with QPR defeating Rotherham 8-7 on penalties in the third round.

It was the 95th in the competition since shootouts were introduced for the 1991/92 season.

And with ties this season going straight to penalties if 90 minutes and extra time can't produce a winner, this edition of the cup should see the century brought up.

A decent record from the spot will therefore take on more significance when it comes to picking out a side who can go on a decent run.

Planet Sport looks back on the records of the remaining 32 teams to see if they can be trusted when it comes to shootouts.

Manchester United vs Middlesbrough

Manchester United shootouts: 3 (wins 0, losses 3)

Twelve-time FA Cup winners Manchester United will be hoping that penalties are not required at Old Trafford against Chris Wilder's Championship outfit.

Involved in three penalty shootouts, albeit all under the leadership of Sir Alex Ferguson, United have bowed out to Southampton, Everton and Arsenal.

The defeat against Arsenal was the hardest to take given it was in the 2005 final.

Middlesbrough shootouts: 2 (wins 2, losses 0)

Boro had penalty shootout victories in back-to-back rounds in 2006/07, firstly at this stage against Bristol City and then at West Brom in the fifth round before being knocked out by Friday's opponents Manchester United after a replay.

Chelsea vs Plymouth

Chelsea shootouts: 4 (wins 2, losses 2)

One of the most successful teams in the competition's history, Chelsea have a mixed record when it comes to shootouts.

They lost their first ever shootout in the cup against Millwall in 1995 before defeating Newcastle from the spot the following campaign.

Fifteen years passed before their next match that went all the way, with the Blues losing out to Everton.

In 2018 they then scraped past Norwich City 5-3 in the third round, Willy Caballero crucially saving the Canaries' first penalty from Nelson Oliveira.

Plymouth Argyle shootouts: 0

Kidderminster Harriers vs West Ham United

Kidderminster shootouts (in the FA Cup proper): 0

Harriers have never been involved in a shootout in the FA Cup proper but bowed out in the second qualifying round last season, going down 4-2 on penalties to Alvechurch after a 2-2 draw.

West Ham United shootouts: 5 (wins 2, losses 3)

The Irons defeated Blackburn 4-3 on penalties in 1998 before coming up short in the next round against the mighty Arsenal, again via a shootout.

Since then they have lost to Sheffield United, and to Liverpool in 2006 when Steven Gerrard's long-range screamer took the cup final into extra time.

Their most recent FA Cup shootout was a success, however, beating Everton 9-8. Goalkeeper Adrian was the hero in sudden death after fellow keeper Joel Robles crashed his spot-kick against the bar.

Crystal Palace vs Hartlepool United

Crystal Palace shootouts: 0

Hartlepool United shootouts: 1 (wins 1, losses 0)

The Jeff Stelling-supported Pools boast 100% shootout success. Their one and only match to go all the way ended in a 4-2 victory over Rochdale in the 2006/07 first round. They were then dumped out by Macclesfield in the next round.

Huddersfield Town vs Barnsley

Huddersfield shootouts: 0

Barnsley shootouts: 1 (wins: 1, losses 0)

The Tykes' one and only shootout win came against Leicester City in 1992/93, a campaign in which the Division One side reached the fifth round.

Peterborough United vs QPR

Peterborough shootouts: 3 (wins 1, losses 2)

On their way to relegation from Division One, Peterborough were unable to upset the odds in 1994 despite taking Spurs to a shootout. The match finished 1-1 after extra time, with Tottenham winning the shootout 4-3.

In 2016, the Posh again lost 4-3 on penalties, this time to West Brom before gaining their first FA Cup shootout win three seasons later against Bradford City.

Queens Park Rangers shootouts: 1 (wins 1, losses 0)

Mark Warburton's high-flying Rangers have only had one shootout and it came in the previous round of this season's competition.

After playing out a 1-1 draw with League One Rotherham, stand-in keeper Jordan Archer pushed Chiedozie Ogbene's penalty around the post to send the Championship side through 8-7.

Southampton vs Coventry City

Southampton shootouts: 2 (wins 1, losses 1)

The Saints defeated Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United on penalties back in 1992 before eventually getting knocked out in the last eight.

Since then, they have only played out one more FA Cup shootout, losing out to Derby County in 2019.

Sheffield United Wayne Quinn penalty vs Coventry FA Cup 1998

Coventry City shootouts: 2 (wins 0, losses 2)

Coventry lost a low-scoring shootout in 1998 to Sheffield United, going down 3-1 with a place in the semi-final at stake.

Their second shootout loss came against Birmingham City in 2020, the Sky Blues losing that one 4-1.

Everton vs Brentford

Everton shootouts: 3 (wins 2, losses 1)

David Moyes' Everton outfit defeated Manchester United 4-2 on penalties to reach the final in 2009 where they came up short against Chelsea.

Two seasons later, they gained revenge on Chelsea by beating them on penalties in the fourth Round.

In 2015 they experienced their first shootout defeat, going down 9-8 in an epic shootout with West Ham.

Brentford shootouts: 1 (wins 1, losses 0)

Martin Allen guided his League One team to the play-offs and the fifth round of the FA Cup in 2004/05 but they had to overcome Bristol City 3-2 on penalties in the first round to get them up and running.

Stoke City vs Wigan Athletic

Stoke shootouts: 1 (wins 1, losses 0)

Stoke actually featured in the first FA Cup penalty shootout in 1972, losing out to Birmingham City in the short-lived third-place play-off which occurred at the start of the following season. However, as shootouts weren't included in the competition proper until almost 20 years later, we're happy to disregard that one.

It leaves Stoke with one from one, having beaten Tamworth 5-4 on penalties in 2006. Steve Simonsen saved the crucial spot-kick to end the dreams of the non-leaguers who were in the third round for the first time.

Jimmy Bullard Wigan Apr06

Wigan shootouts: 2 (wins 1, losses 1)

Their first shootout was in 2006 when they beat Leeds United following a 3-3 draw after extra time. Soccer AM presenter Jimmy Bullard scored his penalty to help Athletic advance.

Wigan were involved in their only penalty shootout during the 2013/14 season, where they came up short against that season's winners, Arsenal. The loss came in the semi-final, with Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta one of his side's successful takers.

Manchester City vs Fulham

Manchester City shootouts: 0

Fulham shootouts: 2 (wins 1, losses 1)

One of Wolves' losses was against the aforementioned Fulham and their other defeat on penalties came against Sheffield Wednesday in the 1999/2000 fourth round.

Their one and only win in a shootout was also against Wednesday, and it came five years earlier, also in the fourth round.

Tim Krul Troy Parrott FA Cup Norwich vs Spurs Mar20

Norwich City shootouts: 2 (wins 1, losses 1)

Tim Krul was the hero, saving two penalties as Norwich beat Tottenham 3-2 in a shootout after a 1-1 draw to reach the quarter-final in 2020.

Two years earlier the Canaries bowed out 5-3 at the hands of Chelsea.

Cambridge United vs Luton Town

Cambridge United shootouts: 1 (wins 0, losses 1)

This seasons' surprise packages have experienced FA Cup penalties once, losing out 4-2 to Macclesfield in the 2003/04 edition after a 2-2 replay draw.

Luton Town shootouts: 1 (wins 0, losses 1)

It's an identical record for Cambridge's fourth-round opponents who were defeated 4-2 by current National League North outfit Altrincham in the first round in 2008.

Tottenham vs Brighton

Tottenham shootouts: 2 (wins 1, losses 1)

Spurs featured in the only penalty shootout of the 1993/94 FA Cup, overcoming Peterborough United.

Their defeat came at the hands of Norwich in the fifth round in 2020 when Canaries keeper Tim Krul famously wrote the names of Spurs' spot-kick takers on his water bottle, complete with their predicted way of shooting.

Brighton shootouts: 4 (wins 4, losses 0)

The Seagulls boast an immaculate record when it comes to FA Cup shootouts with a perfect four from four.

Wrexham, Newport County, Woking and Millwall have all failed to get the better of Brighton in a shootout, with the most recent of them, against Newport, coming in last season's third round. It was Brighton's ninth penalty shootout win in ten in all competitions.

Liverpool shootouts: 3 (wins 3, losses 0)

Liverpool haven't been involved in an FA Cup penalty shootout since 2006, when they defeated West Ham in the final.

In 1995, they avoided a third-round scare, defeating Birmingham on penalties with Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp scoring one of only two penalties needed to wrap up the tie for Liverpool.

Their first win in an FA Cup shootout came in the 1992 semi-final against Portsmouth. The Reds would go on to lift the trophy, beating second-tier side Sunderland in the final.

Cardiff shootouts: 1 (wins 0, losses 1)

The Welsh side were on the wrong side of the 4-1 scoreline in their only shootout, which took place in 2020 after they drew 3-3 with fellow Championship outfit Reading in the fourth round.

Nottingham Forest vs Leicester City

Forest shootouts: 0

Leicester City shootouts: 2 (wins 1, losses 1)

The Foxes have a mixed record in FA Cup shootouts. They were defeated 5-4 on spot-kicks by Barnsley in the early '90s but beat FA Cup big-hitters Arsenal on penalties in the fourth round in 2000.

Pegguy Arphexad was their hero, the substitute goalkeeper blocking penalties from Lee Dixon and Gilles Grimandi to earn Leicester a 6-5 win.

Bournemouth vs Boreham Wood

Bournemouth shootouts: 3 (wins 2, losses 1)

Boreham Wood shootouts (in the FA Cup proper): 1 (wins 1, losses 0)

The non-league side defeated then-League Two club Southend United in the first round on penalties last season, goalkeeper Nathan Ashmore proving their hero.
