FA Cup third round draw live as Premier League giants enter competition

The FA Cup third round is almost upon us, and that means minnows meeting giants as the 44 Premier League and Championship sides enter the fray.

The likes of Stockport County, Marine and Chorley all booked their spots over the weekend with second round successes.

And all will have their eyes on a showpiece fixture against the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool or holders Arsenal – who won the competition for a record 14th time back in August – in the next round.

A total of 64 balls will be drawn tonight, with 65 teams remaining in the hat, ahead of the final second round showdown between Canvey Island and Boreham Wood.

The ties will be played over the weekend of January 9/10, and there will be no replays.

Instead, any ties that are level after 90 minutes will go to extra-time and, if necessary, penalties.
