BLACKPOOL will face Fulham away in the third round of the FA Cup.

The Seasiders will travel to London to face the Premier League side on the weekend of January 5th.

Martin Jol’s side lie 12th in the top flight and have failed to win in their previous seven games.

Rafael Benitez’s Chelsea will begin their defence with a tough-looking all-Premier League tie at Southampton.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s 11-time winners beat the Hammers 1-0 in the league last week, but the two have enjoyed some memorable cup battles over the years, including when Paolo Di Canio scored the only goal of a surprise 1-0 West Ham win in 2001.

Two former Blackpool favourites clash when Charlie Adam’s Stoke side travel to face Ian Holloway’s Crystal Palace.
