Where to watch the FA Cup fifth round draw as Chelsea, Tottenham and West Ham eye victories



The FA Cup is back this weekend and a number of London clubs will be involved as they look to book their place in the fifth round of the prestigious tournament.

Everyone but Arsenal made it past the third round stage of the Premier League’s representatives from the capital.

Chelsea beat Chesterfield, Tottenham survived a scare against Morecambe, West Ham beat Leeds, Brentford saw off Port Vale and Crystal Palace edged past Millwall.

The Gunners, however, learnt the hard way that anything could happen in the FA Cup as they were beaten 1-0 by Championship Nottingham Forest in the East Midlands.

Fulham and QPR have also won a place in the fourth round, ensuring there remains plenty of London on display in the cup.

While none of the clubs will be getting ahead of themselves, a place in the fifth round is of course the goal, and with that comes the excitement of the draw.

Ex-footballer’s stirring balls around a perspex bowl before awkwardly pointing the number towards a camera; what’s not to love?

ITV will have the bragging rights over the draw this time around and it is set to take place on the main channel ahead of Liverpool’s clash with Cardiff on Sunday, February 6.

An exact time has not yet been confirmed but coverage of the match begins at 11:15am with kick-off scheduled for 12pm, so the draw will take place in that 45 minute gap.

But how many of our clubs will make it through?
