Liverpool to host Everton in FA Cup third round
Written by News on 03/12/2019
Liverpool will host Merseyside rivals Everton in the FA Cup third round next month, while non-league AFC Fylde will travel to face Sheffield United.
The Anfield fixture will see the Toffees travel across Stanley Park in search of their first win at the stadium for 21 years – assuming they do not win their Premier League fixture there on Wednesday night.
The third round will also see Arsenal host Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds, while last year’s winners Manchester City will play League Two side Port Vale.
City’s rivals Manchester United face a tougher draw – they must visit Wolves, who knocked them out in the quarter-finals last season.
Chelsea will host Nottingham Forest in the third round for the second successive season, while Jose Mourinho will take his new Tottenham side to Middlesbrough.
There could be two clashes between Premier League and non-league sides. AFC Fylde have been drawn away to Sheffield United, while Boston United will host Newcastle if they win their replay against Rochdale.
All third-round fixtures will take place on the weekend of January 4/5.
