The first round proper kicked off on November 6, with 48 teams from across League One and League Two entering the competition at that stage.

Who won the FA Cup last season?

Leicester City won the 2020-21 edition of the FA Cup after a 1-0 victory over Chelsea in the final.

The winning goal was scored by Youri Tielemans and Thomas Tuchel's side were left feeling aggrieved after Ben Chilwell had a goal ruled out following inspection by VAR.

It was Leicester's first ever FA Cup triumph, with the Foxes losing in four previous final appearances (1949, 1961, 1963 and 1969).
