FA Cup 4th & 5th round draw: When is it, how to watch and who is involved

The FA Cup has already brought us plenty of thrills and spills, and that’s only going to continue as we venture further into the competition.

We’re heading towards the fourth round of the competition, so that means we’ve got another draw to get excited about.

Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming draw.

The draw for the fourth and fifth rounds will actually be held at the same time, with both taking place on Monday 11 January.

It’s scheduled to be held ahead of West Ham United‘s third-round tie with Stockport County, with the first draw coming at 19:10 (BST) and the second set at the very specific time of 19:23.

Reshmin Chowdhury and Peter Crouch will conduct the draw on BT Sport 1 as part of their pre-match coverage of the West Ham game.

Fans can also keep up to date with the draws on the FA Cup’s official Facebook and Twitter pages.

Five Premier League teams will definitely not be involved. Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, Newcastle United, West Bromwich Albion and Leeds United have already exited the competition, with Leeds becoming the latest victims of the magic of the FA Cup as they were thumped by League Two’s Crawley Town.

Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City have already booked their places in the fourth-round draw, and Tottenham will hope to join them with a victory on Sunday evening.

There are a handful of fascinating stories to follow in the competition as well. Non-league side Chorley are still involved after seeing off a COVID-stricken Derby side, but all eyes will be on whether eighth-tier side Marine can make it past Tottenham to seal a spot in the next round.

The fourth-round fixtures are set to be held across the weekend of 23 January, before the fifth round will be played out on Wednesday 10 February.
