Liverpool still have a replay against Exeter City to contend with, but if they can make it past the League Two side at Anfield on January 20th, they know that they will be matched up with West Ham United on the weekend of January 30th.

On paper, it's one of the more difficult draws of the fourth round, pitting Liverpool against a Premier League side two points ahead of them in the current table—and that beat them 2-0 on January 2nd. This time, though, at least the game would be played at Anfield.

Elsewhere, Everton will travel to face the winner of the Carlisle vs. Yeovil Town replay, Manchester City will get the winner of the Wycombe vs. Aston Villa replay, Manchester United will face Derby County, Arsenal will face Burnley, and Tottenham face Colchester.

Not every game will be televised, but with the broadcasters favouring potential upsets pitting lower league hosts against Premier League opposition or big-name pairings, there's a very good chance Liverpool's potential match-up will be chosen for television.

If Liverpool win their replay, the game against West Ham will represent the only pairing of top-half Premier League sides, making it the biggest match-up of the fourth round. If Exeter City win, they would host the Hammers after knocking Liverpool out.
