And every club left in the tournament at this stage will have one thing and one thing only on their minds - securing their spot in the pot for the draw to decide who will play who in the next stage of the competition.
Here’s everything you need to know about the FA Cup fourth round draw...
When is the FA Cup fourth round draw?
The draw for the fourth round of the FA Cup will take place on Sunday January 9th at 16:50 GMT.
At that point, all but two of this weekend’s third round ties - Arsenal vs Nottingham Forest and Manchester United vs Aston Villa - will have been played.
How can I watch the FA Cup fourth round draw?
The draw will take place on ITV following coverage of the all-Premier League tie between Leeds United and West Ham.
