THE FA Cup Third Round is taking place this weekend, with teams hoping they can make it through to the fourth round.

Sides like Chesterfield, Cambridge United, Shrewsbury and Morecambe will have to beat Premier League opposition to get there, in Chelsea, Newcastle United, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur respectively.

League Two Swindon Town kicked off the action yesterday, January 7, when they took on current Premier League leaders Manchester City.

In total 32 matches will take place over this weekend, and clubs will only have the one match to get through, as the FA announced last month that replays would be scrapped in the third and fourth round.

This is to help alleviate congestion, following a spate of recent postponements caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

When will the FA Cup 4th Round draw take place?

The FA Cup Fourth Round draw will take place tomorrow, January 9, at 4.50pm, as part of ITV's coverage for West Ham United vs Leeds United.

Former England goalkeeper David James and Arsenal Women and England international Leah Williamson will be making the draw at Wembley Stadium.

The draw will also be broadcast via Emirates FA Cup social media channels on Twitter and Facebook.

When will the FA Cup 4th Round take place?

The fourth round will take place between Friday 4 and February 7, 2022, with winning clubs at that stage picking up £90,000 from the competition prize fund.
