The Premier League’s big hitters are welcomed to the FA Cup at the third-round stage. Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Co will all discover their fates when the draw takes place this evening.

There will be five non-League sides hoping to land dream ties against a Premier League team.

Kidderminster Harriers, who play in the sixth tier of English football, are the lowest-ranked club still in the competition and will be joined in the draw by Chesterfield, Boreham Wood, St Albans City and Yeovil Town.

The key balls to look out for are 2 (Arsenal), 13 (Chelsea), 23 (Liverpool), 25 (Manchester City), 26 (Manchester United), 40 (Tottenham Hotspur).

Holders Leicester will also be number 23 in the draw. 

Here, Express Sport will bring you live coverage of the FA third-round draw.

  • Paul Scholes was brutally mocked after Chesterfield ace scored FA Cup goal

    Paul Scholes was brutally mocked by a Chesterfield player after he scored in their FA Cup tie with Salford over the weekend. 

    The Man Utd legend is a co-owner of the League 2 outfit and bore the brunt of a joke by Chesterfield players as they mocked a certain viral video of Scholes during their goal celebrations.

    Will there be any dream ties for minnows?

    There are five non-League sides in tonight’s draw, and all will undoubtedly be desperate to land a tie against one of the Premier League big boys.

    Kidderminster Harriers, Yeovil and Chesterfield are all in tonight’s draw while Boreham Wood and St Albans will also be in the draw, though they are playing each other tonight for a place in the third round.


    Ralf Rangnick told he needs to win the FA Cup

    Gary Neville has urged Ralf Rangnick to do his upmost to win the FA Cup as he discussed what could be considered a success for the Man Utd interim boss. 

    Speaking last week, the United legend said: “For Ralf Rangnick, to finish in the top four would be a successful season. If we could win the FA Cup that would be incredible.

    “He has to somehow get those players, who have looked so disconnected and disjointed in the last two or three months, sorted straight away.

    “They have lost all their confidence, haven’t really got a system of play and are not very good defensively.

    “He’s got a big job to do but top four has to be the target for him this season.”
