FA Cup third round draw: All you need to know

West Ham United will discover their Emirates FA Cup third round opponents when the draw is made on Monday evening.  Here’s everything you need to know about the draw…

What’s the story so far?

West Ham enter the FA Cup at the third round stage, along with their fellow 43 Premier League and EFL Championship clubs.

Twenty sides have made it through the qualifying and first two rounds proper to reach the final 64.

The lowest-ranked side to have guaranteed their place in the third round is National League South team Woking, who beat League Two Swindon Town on Saturday.

Another non-league outfit, Barnet, have secured their round three spot, while Guiseley, Southport and Wrexham could still join them.

Last year, the Hammers saw off Shrewsbury Town in the third round before their FA Cup journey was ended by Wigan Athletic.

Where and when can I watch the draw?

The draw will take place live on BBC One from 7.30pm on Monday evening. The balls will be drawn by former Chelsea player-manager Ruud Gullit and Hammers Academy graduate and ex-Liverpool and Manchester United man Paul Ince.

If you can’t watch live, news of the draw will be on and our social media channels as soon as it is made.

What number should I look out for?

The Hammers are ball number 42 in Monday evening’s draw.
