By India Today Web Desk: Premier League champions Manchester City are all set to host 2021 Champions League winners Chelsea in the third round of the FA Cup. Meanwhile, Manchester United will host Frank Lampard’s Everton at Old Trafford.

Pep Guardiola’s side clashed with Chelsea in the Carabao Cup this month and will lock horns again at the Etihad Stadium in early January.

In other matches, Mikel Arteta’s high-flying Arsenal will play Oxfrord United in the FA Cup’s third round. Their fierce London rivals Tottenham Hotspur will face Portsmouth, while Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool will get ready for an all-Premier League clash against Wolves.

Liverpool won the 2021-22 FA Cup, beating Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea side on penalties. Meanwhile, Arsenal have won the FA Cup four times in the last nine years.

Interestingly, Chelsea have lost the last three FA Cup finals, losing against Liverpool in 2022, Leicester City in 2021, and Arsenal in 2020. The Blues have actually made it to the final of the FA Cup, five times in the last six years but only lifted the cup once in that time period (2017-18).
