FA Cup fourth-round draw

West Ham United will host Fulham or Blackpool if they beat Manchester United in their FA Cup with Budweiser third-round replay.

The Hammers played out a fantastic 2-2 draw with the Red Devils at the Boleyn Ground on Saturday evening, coming from behind to take the lead through two James Collins' headers, only for Robin van Persie's late equaliser to force a replay.

That game will take place at Old Trafford on Wednesday 16 January, with the winners hosting either Fulham or Blackpool in the fourth round. The tie would be played on the weekend of 26/27 January.

If West Ham get through, the fourth-round tie will have plenty of historical significance.

The Hammers beat Bobby Moore's Fulham 2-0 at Wembley in the 1975 final, while they of course overcame Blackpool 2-1 at the new Wembley in last season's npower Championship Play-Off final.

West Ham have faced Fulham five times in the FA Cup, with the first meeting coming in the Intermediate Round on 3 December 1903, when the Cottagers ran out 1-0 winners at the Memorial Grounds. The most recent FA Cup meeting with the Cottagers went to a replay, with the west Londoners winning 3-0 at the Boleyn Ground in the fifth round on 24 February 2004.

The Hammers have faced Blackpool on six previous occasions - the first being a 2-1 first-round win at the Boleyn Ground on 12 January 1907 and the most-recent being a 4-0 third-round defeat at Bloomfield Road on 27 February 1971.

Ticket details for the third-round replay at Old Trafford will be confirmed on whufc.com soon.
