Fellow top-flight side Wigan avoided a potential upset against League One outfit Bournemouth with a 1-0 victory. Mauro Boselli’s 25-yard strike proved enough to send the Latics into the next round, whilst condemning Eddie Howe to his first defeat since returning to Goldsands stadium.
Brentford secured a dream fourth round tie against European Champions Chelsea with a victory against Southend. Paul Hayes sent the hosts on their way with a header on 26 minutes and, though Barry Corr equalised for the Shrimpers, Clayton Donaldson secured the win for the home side.
Hull, meanwhile, needed extra time to overcome League One side Leyton Orient. Nick Proschwitz's first-half goal looked to be enough to send the Championship visitors through in normal time before Dean Cox's late equaliser delayed the party. However, Steve Bruce's men were not to be denied as Tom Cairney netted a decisive winner with penalties looming.
MK Dons produced an upset at home to three-time FA Cup winners Sheffield Wednesday as a Shaun Williams penalty and Dean Bowditch's free-kick sent Karl Robinson’s side into the fourth round for the first time.
Bolton continued their recent good run in the FA Cup with a win over Premier League opposition in the form of Sunderland, as Marvin Sordell netted twice for the hosts. Fulham survived a similar scare, however, as Kieran Richardson cancelled out Nathan Delfouneso's strike for Blackpool in the dying moments before Brede Hangeland produced a similarly late winner in extra time.
Jon Walters atoned for his Stamford Bridge nightmare by netting twice as Stoke overcame Championship outfit Crystal Palace. Potters goalkeeper Asmir Begovic saved an early penalty before Kenwyne Jones netted and Glenn Murray converted the visitors' second spot-kick with 87minutes on the clock. Tony Pulis' men were not to be denied, though, with Walters' double adding to Cameron Jerome's late strike.
Birmingham were not as fortunate, however, as goals from El-Hadji Diouf and Ross McCormack helped Leeds to a 2-1 victory at St Andrew's on Tuesday evening.
