Manchester United will travel to east London for their third round FA Cup tie to face West Ham United

Clive Brunskill

The draw for the third round of the FA Cup occurred earlier today and during it, it was revealed that Manchester United will travel to West Ham United for a tie on the weekend of January 5-6. The two sides have met seven times in their histories in this cup competition and it's the Hammers that have emerged on top most often with four victories. The two sides met at the past midweek, as well, in a Premier League tie and it was the Red Devils that came out on top by a 1-0 scoreline at Old Trafford. United have lifted the FA Cup more than any other English club, eleven times, but they have not won it since 2004 when they defeated Millwall in the final.
