FA Cup third round draw

Why indeed... Another Manchester derby on the way.

We’ll be treated to another Manchester derby in the third round of the FA Cup, with City drawn to face United relatively early on in the competition.

This will be a rematch of last season’s semi-final, won by eventual champions City.

While I’m certainly confident that United will give City a far better challenge this time around, I’m disappointed this match wasn’t at a later stage in the tournament.

Leicester City will face East Midlands rival and fellow Championship side Nottingham Forest in their third round tie. Matt will no doubt be confident the Foxes can get the job done in this one.
