The Frenchman bowed out of former club Arsenal by scoring the winning penalty in their 2005 final over Manchester United, lifting the cup five times in his playing career, and his Palace team look well set-up for a cup run.
A fun and energetic outfit, they have little in the way of realistic relegation concern and could afford to make the competition somewhat of a priority in the second-half of the season.
Standing in their way is a Millwall side lying only seven points off of the final Championship play-off spot with two games in hand on Huddersfield Town.
Date, kick-off time and venue:
The FA Cup meeting is scheduled for a 12.45pm GMT kick-off today, Saturday January 8, 2022.

George Long, meanwhile, could replace Bartosz Bialkowski in goal.
For Palace, Vieira has confirmed he intends to play as strong a team as possible.
Millwall vs Crystal Palace prediction
It certainly won’t be easy and Millwall can take solace in the fact they boast one of the better defensive records in the Championship but one would expect this Palace side to dominate the ball and create openings.
Palace to win 1-0.
