FA Cup: Third Round — Top fixtures

By Efosa Taiwo

The 20 teams of the Premier League will compete in the FA Cup this weekend with two cup favorites: Chelsea and Manchester City headlining the Third Round fixtures.

Chelsea have had a bitter-sweet experience in the FA Cup in recent time having lost the last three FA Cup Finals and will be looking at mounting a rather successful challenge for the prestigious title this campaign.

The Blues, coming off the back of a defeat to the same Man City in the Premier League on Thursday, will have revenge in their mind when they travel to the Etihad stadium on Sunday – even though Potter is left to hang on to a depleted squad plagued by injuries to key players.

The tie is one of several all-Premier League ties with Manchester United will host Everton, Southampton go to Crystal Palace, Wolves are away to Liverpool, and Brentford welcome West Ham United.
