6 Comments

Liverpool will play Merseyside rivals Everton, while record FA Cup winners Arsenal entertain Leeds United in the third round of the competition after the draw was made on Monday.

Premier League leaders Liverpool, who last won the trophy in 2006, host neighbors Everton at Anfield.

Arsenal, who have lifted the FA Cup 13 times, were drawn against Championship (second-tier) side Leeds, whose only FA Cup win came against the Gunners in the 1972 final.

Holders Manchester City host League Two (fourth-tier) side Port Vale, while Manchester United visit Wolverhampton Wanderers.

AFC Fylde of the National League, the lowest-ranked side guaranteed a third round spot, were drawn away to Premier League Sheffield United.

Boston United of the National League North, the sixth tier of English football, could face Newcastle United if they overcome Rochdale in a second-round home replay.

Chelsea host Nottingham Forest, Tottenham Hotspur travel to Middlesbrough and Leicester City welcome Wigan Athletic in the pick of the other games.

The ties will be played from Jan 3-6.

Klopp usually gets us out of the FA Cup pretty early

Hope he gets you out after the 3rd round.

We need to be out of all cups. Hoping Leicester put us out of that Cariboo ( or whatever it’s called ) nonsense.

Good draw for Everton. Get us out early so we can focus on staying up.

Odd how often we get drawn together in the FA Cup, this is the fourth time in the last ten years. But Klopp usually gets us out of the FA Cup pretty early so you might have a chance Jimizo

The important title now for Liverpool is winning the league, everything else must be second, but a great draw FA Cup Derby
