FA Cup fifth round draw - it's Everton or Fulham


Filed: Monday, 26th January 2004

West Ham will play the winners of the Fulham versus Everton fourth round replay in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The Hammers - winners on the road in both previous rounds at Wigan and Wolves - face another Premiership side on their travels in the fifth round after the draw was made today.

Alan Pardew's men - who were the very last team drawn - missed the big four of Arsenal, Man Utd, Chelsea and Liverpool to book a tie at either Loftus Road or Goodison Park.

The Hammers have fond memories of playing both Fulham and Everton in the FA Cup. Minds will obviously be cast back to the 1980 semi-final replay agaist Everton which spawned the famous Frank Lamapard 'White Christmas' song, and the 1991 quarter-final success at Upton Park against the same opposition.

As for Fulham - who can forget the FA CUP final win in 1975, when Alan Taylor struck a brace at Wembley to register the Hammers' second post-war Cup success.

Good omens, perhaps?

Full draw

Man Utd v Man City or Tottenham
Tranmere v Swansea
Telford v Burnley
Sunderland v Birmingham
Sheffield Utd v Coventry or Colchester
Arsenal v Chelsea
Liverpool v Portsmouth
Everton or Fulham v West Ham

Ties to be played on the weekend of February 14th/15th.
