Scroll down for the FA Cup fourth-round draw
Four Barclays Premier League clubs made it through to the fourth round of the FA Cup after winning their third-round replays on Tuesday night.
Jonathan Walters was the hero for Stoke City as he scored twice in extra time to give his side a 4-1 victory over Crystal Palace at the Britannia Stadium.
Kenwyne Jones put the home side ahead with 21 minutes to go, only for Glenn Murray to equalise for Palace late on from the penalty spot. Walters headed home for Stoke in extra-time before adding another with 10 minutes to go. Cameron Jerome then sealed the victory when he rounded goalkeeper Lewis Price to score.
In the all-Premier League tie of the evening, Queens Park Rangers went through at the expense of West Bromwich Albion. Jay Bothroyd, who was back in the QPR team after a loan spell at Sheffield Wednesday, headed the only goal from Alejandro Faurlin's corner with 15 minutes left. QPR goalkeeper Rob Green was in fine form, making a string of important saves, as the visitors recorded their first win over Premier League opposition in the competition for 18 years.
Fulham sealed their place in the fourth round after a dramatic victory over Blackpool at Bloomfield Road. The Championship side were on their way to recording a memorable victory after on-loan Aston Villa striker Nathan Delfouneso put Blackpool ahead with only eight minutes to go.
But substitute Kieran Richardson's strike from outside of the area with the last kick of normal time sent the tie to extra time before Brede Hangeland headed home the winner with only four minutes left before penalties.
Argentine striker Mauro Boselli's first-half strike gave Wigan Athletic a 1-0 victory over Bournemouth at Dean Court. Boselli pounced on a defensive mistake to fire home from 20 yards out.
Sunderland, meanwhile, were knocked out as two goals from striker Marvin Sordell gave Bolton Wanderers a 2-0 win at the Stadium of Light. The home side had the best of the of the first half but could not find a breakthrough and Bolton took the lead on 64 minutes when Sordell converted a penalty after Jack Colback had fouled Darren Pratley. Sordell ensured the win by squeezing in Tyrone Mears' centre.
Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney is expected to play for the first time since Christmas in the third-round replay against West Ham United at Old Trafford this evening. Ashley Young and Jonny Evans are out but Nani is fit.
West Ham's James Collins is out, leaving James Tomkins, Guy Demel and Winston Reid as the club's only fit front-line defenders.
Arsenal will be without the suspended Laurent Koscielny and the injured Mikel Arteta for their replay at home to Swansea City. Midfielder Abou Diaby might feature again having returned from injury to play in the Barclays Premier League defeat by Manchester City last Sunday. Swansea manager Michael Laudrup will not be able to select new loan signing Roland Lamah after the winger was not registered at the time of the original tie.
