FA Cup Third Round Draw

The most famous draw in club football throws up more Giant-Killing potential.

The Third Round draw of the FA Cup has been made, but which club do you think will deliver the biggest upset in a competition known globally for its giant-killing reputation? Vote below…

Exeter City will host Liverpool in one of the stand-out ties. Just yesterday the Reds lost at St James’ Park against Newcastle and now a face a visit to a stadium with the same name. Will they suffer another shock defeat?

Aston Villa’s trip to Wycombe also presents itself as a tie with ‘cupset’ written all over it. The Villains have won just the once in the league this season. Surely a defeat to League Two opposition would be a new low?

Premier League Everton could play host to sixth-tier opposition. Should National League South side Whitehawk win their second round replay against Dagenham & Redbridge, then a dream trip to Goodison Park awaits.

Astonishingly, half of the Premier League clubs will be playing against teams from the same division, including Tottenham and Leicester, who have both only lost once in the league this season.

TV Matches will be announced in the next few days.
