Arsenal first in cup

West Ham United have been drawn at home against Arsenal in the third round of the 2009/10 FA Cup.

The match will be a repeat of the cup final 30 years ago, when Sir Trevor Brooking headed the only goal of the game in the 13th minute at Wembley on 10 May 1980. The clubs last met in the FA Cup in the 1997/98 edition when there was a 1-1 draw in a sixth-round replay at the Boleyn Ground before the Gunners won 4-3 in a penalty shoot-out.

The clubs have already met this season in the Barclays Premier League when Arsenal took a two-goal lead on 25 October before Gianfranco Zola's men battled back to earn a 2-2 draw. The return fixture at the Emirates Stadium will take place on 20 March.

The Hammers were ball No42 in the hat when Olympic great Sir Steven Redgrave and England women's football star Kelly Smith conducted the draw proceedings at Wembley. The third round will be played on the weekend of 2/3 January 2010, with this stage seeing all Premier League and Championship clubs enter for the first time.

Gianfranco Zola's men reached the fifth round last season, having knocked out Barnsley and Hartlepool United before coming unstuck after a replay at Middlesbrough. West Ham won the famous old competition in 1964 and 1975 as well as in 1980.
