2021-22 FA Cup, live! How to watch, stream, schedule, odds, predictions

·4 min read

The FA Cup draw has been held for the third round, as Premier League sides enter the fray in pursuit of silverware.

There are three all-Premier League ties in the third round, and Manchester United vs Aston Villa is the final clash of the third round with the fourth-round draw already made.

Steven Gerrard has vowed to put out Villa’s strongest-possible team as he chases FA Cup glory for the first time as a manager, while Ralf Rangnick and Man United will want to get that winning habit back and will be eager to reach the fourth round.

The winner of this tie will host Middlesbrough in the last 32.

Defending champions Leicester City hammered Watford, Leeds United lost at West Ham United, and Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham all handled their clashes against lower-league opponents. Arsenal lost at second-tier Nottingham Forest, while Newcastle United lost at home against third-tier Cambridge United in one of the big shocks of the round.

The Football Association Challenge Cup was first held in 1871-72 and the record for most titles is Arsenal with 14, followed by Manchester United’s 12.

There has not been a repeat winner since Arsenal won the 2013-14 and 2014-15 FA Cups.
