FA Cup Third Round weekend is one of the biggest events in the English football calendar, and you can watch a mouthwatering double-header live on ITV1 and ITV.com on Saturday 5th January.

For starters, there's the possibility of an upset at the Falmer Stadium, as Gus Poyet's Brighton & Hove Albion welcome Premier League opponents in the form of Newcastle United. Poyet is doing a fine job down on the south coast, and Alan Pardew's side will have to be at their best to come away from the Falmer with a place in the Fourth Round draw. Coverage of the big match begins at 12pm on Saturday, on ITV1 and online.

The second course is just as tasty, with West Ham United (FA Cup winners in 1964, 1975 and 1980) taking on Premier League pace-setters Manchester United (FA Cup winners on no less than 11 occasions) at Upton Park. Coverage of our second big game on Saturday kicks off at 4.30pm on ITV1 and online.
