In this FA Cup third round draw, where many of the big clubs enter, its no surprise to find some all premier league ties. Sunderland face Burnley, Hull city face Swansea, West Ham face Man city at the Olympic stadium in the first FA Cup tie played there, and Everton take on the champions Leicester City.

Potential giant killers for this FA Cup third round draw, where the TV crews will be stationed, will be at Old Trafford to see if Reading can take down Mourinho’s team whose form has been decidedly dodgy, Anfield to watch Newport or Plymouth turn over Klopp’s boys, and Stamford Bridge to watch Notts County or Peterborough reign in Conte’s in form team.

Much of these will be based not on current form but the team selections managers will use to tackle the increasingly busy Christmas schedule, as games will be played between the 6th and 9th January 2017.
