West Ham United have been drawn at home to high-flying Championship outfit West Bromwich Albion in the FA Cup fourth round.

David Moyes' men will take on the Baggies, now managed by former Hammer Slaven Bilic, at London Stadium later this month.

The Hammers booked their place in the competition's last-32 by defeating League One Gillingham 2-0 at Priestfield Stadium on Sunday.

Their reward is a home tie against promotion-chasers West Brom, who saw off fellow second tier side Charlton Athletic in their third round match with a 1-0 victory.

Bilic took charge at the Hawthorns last summer and has enjoyed a superb start to life in the dugout at the Midlands club, who currently sit second in the Championship table.
