There are another three FA Cup third round replays taking place later tonight, but they’re unlikely to match last night’s drama at Upton Park.West Ham came out on-top of an epic penalty shoot-out against 10-man Everton to secure their progress to the fourth-round.Both sides held the lead during the game, which finished dead-locked 2-all after extra-time and there were 20 penalties taken during the shoot-out before Hammers goalkeeper, Adrían scored the decisive goal to help his side to a 9-8 win. West Hams win sets up a fourth-round trip to Bristol City, who beat Doncaster 2-0.Fulham also needed spot-kicks to win their tie, as they got past Wolves, and will now play Sunderland.Chesterfield’s 2-0 win over Scunthorpe earned them a game with Derby.Tonights’ replay action will see Mick McCarthy’s Ipswich host Southampton while Tottenham face Burnley in an all Premier League clash.The other game features Bradford against Millwall.
