Tottenham Hotspur enter the FA Cup in the third round this weekend as they face a trip to non-league side Marine FC.

Jose Mourinho will be hoping and expecting to see his club in the subsequent draw for the fourth round, but things are being done a little differently this year.

Reports have revealed that fourth and fifth-round draws will be conducted on the same day, namely Monday 11 January (Manchester Evening News).

The fourth round draw is scheduled to begin at 19:10 on Monday, just before Stockport County vs West Ham United.

The fifth round draw will start as soon as the fourth round draw is complete, a change from the traditional FA Cup draw format. The same system to used in the Carabao Cup earlier this season.

The fourth round itself is scheduled to be played on the weekend of January 23, with the fifth round taking place on February 10.

Both rounds will be decided across one tie, meaning extra-time and penalties if needed.
