Man United v Aston Villa Highlights FA Cup Third Round Draw

Steven Gerrard will take his Aston Villa side to Manchester United in the pick of the FA Cup third round draw which sees the big teams enter the competition.

European champions Chelsea will be hoping to avoid a cupset when they host non-league side Chesterfield – who currently lead the National League table.

Arsenal travel to Nottingham Forest hoping to avoid a repeat of their 2018 upset, Liverpool host Shrewsbury Town once again while Manchester City will travel to League Two side Swindon Town.

Another League Two vs Premier League clash sees Port Vale host newly-promoted Brentford, while Tottenham will host League One side Morecambe.

West Ham will host Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds in another standout tie, while Millwall host Crystal Palace in a mouth-watering south London derby.

Sixth tier Kidderminster Harriers, who are the lowest-ranked team in the competition, will host Championship side Reading, while under-fire Everton boss Rafa Benitez will be hoping he is still in charge for their trip to Hull City.

The other non-league side, Yeovil Town, will be hoping for a cupset against AFC Bournemouth, who are second in the Championship.

But the standout tie is former Liverpool captain Gerrard looking to get a win against old foes Manchester United, in what will be his first trip to Old Trafford as a manager.

The ex-Reds skipper won two out of his three FA Cup ties against the Red Devils, though both were at Anfield.

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal will be concerned about a trip to Championship side Nottingham Forest, which was the third round fixture for the Gunners in 2018.

That match ended in a 4-2 defeat for Arsenal, in what ended up being Arsene Wenger’s final FA Cup match as Gunners boss. The iconic French manager won the competition seven times – more than any other manager.
