Premier League sides West Ham United and Everton square off after Romelu Lukaku’s late equalizer at Goodison Park set up a replay at Upton Park on Tuesday. Lukaku is expected to play against the Hammers despite being badly affected by the tragic death of his close friend Junior Malanda in a car crash in Germany over the weekend. The winners of this will face either Bristol City of Doncaster who else square off on Tuesday in a replay of their own.

Two former PL teams, who are now in the Championship, face off at Molinuex as Wolverhampton Wanderers host Fulham for a spot in the last 32 on Tuesday. On Wednesday high-flying Southampton head to Portman Road to face Ipswich Town in a tough test for the Saints as the Tractor Boys are pushing for promotion to the Premier League from the Championship. The winners will face Crystal Palace at home in the fourth round. Elsewhere on Wednesday there is an all-Premier League clash between Tottenham and Burnley at White Hart Lane, as the winners will face Leicester City at home in the fourth round.
