When is the FA Cup draw?


After the magic of FA Cup third-round weekend, the matches to take place in the fourth round proper will be decided as the lower-league teams remaining get another shot at drawing a Premier League giant.

There will be 32 balls in the hat as English football’s most prestigious cup competition intensifies, with the road to Wembley heating up.

Manchester City are the defending champions after beating cross-town rivals Manchester United in a historic derby final at Wembley last June, while sixth-tier Maidstone United are the lowest ranked team still in the hat after their 1-0 win over Stevenage.

Huge fixtures such as Arsenal vs Liverpool, a clash won by the Premier League leaders, and Sunderland vs Newcastle, which finished as a 3-0 away win for Eddie Howe’s side, peppered the third-round slate, so what will the last 32 bring?
