The 2012-13 FA Cup is already through three rounds of qualifying matches since it kicked off in August 2012.

Last year's winner, Chelsea, is one of the 32 teams still left in the elimination tournament, and the action is really set to get going with this year's Fourth Round Proper set to begin on Friday, January 25.

Besides the Blues, who hold the current FA Cup title, the rest of the field is packed with traditional powerhouse clubs that have plenty of proving ground between now and the end of the action in May.

Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea make up the top three clubs in the Barclay's Premier League standings, and all three will vie for supremacy against clubs from the top and the bottom of  league standings—including Aston Villa, Stoke City and Derby County.

Here's a look at the upcoming schedule for the FA Cup, including all the matches in the fourth round and the future dates for the rest of the tournament.
