Arsenal Get Very Tough Draw In FA Cup Third Round

Arsenal will kick off their quest to lift a 15th FA Cup title when they host Liverpool at Emirates Stadium in the third round.

The third round draw was made on Sunday afternoon as clubs from the Premier League and EFL Championship joined this season’s competition.

The Gunners last faced Liverpool in the competition back in February 2014 when they ran out 2-1 victors, which was the 17th time both teams have locked horns in the FA Cup.

Current holders of the oldest Cup competition in the world, Manchester City, will host Huddersfield Town and last season’s finalist Manchester United will be guest to 2013 winners Wigan Athletics.
