Our interest in this season's FA Cup begins with the draw for the third round, and we have all the information on when that takes place, who Chelsea could meet and when the ties will be played...
Frank Lampard led us as far as the FA Cup final in his first season as boss, having won the competition as a Chelsea player in 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2012. Having fallen at the last hurdle against Arsenal in August, he and his squad will be looking to go one better in 2021.
When is the Emirates FA Cup third round draw and how can I watch it?
The draw takes place on Monday 30 November at 7.10pm (UK time).
It will be broadcast live on BT Sport, BBC One and the BBC iPlayer in the UK, and on the FA's YouTube channel. We will have news of the draw as soon as it's out on our Twitter, this website and the 5th Stand app.
