FA Cup third round draw: Manchester City to take on Chelsea



Manchester City will host Chelsea in the FA Cup third round while Liverpool start their defence against Wolves at Anfield.

The Premier League champions lost last year’s semi-final 3-2 to the Reds and are set to face a tough test versus Graham Potter’s side.

Holders Liverpool beat the Blues 6-5 on penalties to lift the trophy for the eighth time — and will be up against Wolves.

Meanwhile, Manchester United face Everton in another all-Premier League tie, with Brentford playing London rivals West Ham and Crystal Palace hosting Southampton.

National League side Dagenham and Redbridge or League Two’s Gillingham will take on Leicester who won the competition in 2021.

Record 14-time winners Arsenal travel to League One side Oxford, while Tottenham welcome Portsmouth.

Elsewhere, the lowest-ranked team in the draw Boreham Wood will play third-tier side Accrington Stanley and Chesterfield entertain West Brom.
