Unlucky Chelsea face Manchester City again in FA Cup draw

Chelsea had faced Man City earlier in Carabao Cup and lost the game.

Chelsea’s love affair with Manchester City continues. They have been drawn to face Pep’s side at the Etihad in the third round of this year’s FA Cup.

Graham Potter’s side are currently sitting at 8th in the Premier League table before the World Cup. Last season’s FA Cup runner-ups will now face Man City in FA Cup third round at the start of January.

The Blues have reached the final in each of the last three seasons but they were beaten by Arsenal, Leicester, and Liverpool.

The West London club have already been knocked out of a cup competition once this season by Man City. Pep Guardiola’s side won 2-0 in the Carabao Cup third round earlier this month.

Jurgen Klopp’s side beat Chelsea on penalties last season to lift the trophy for the eighth time. Reds will face struggling Wolves to Anfield and Erik ten Hag’s men will host Everton in FA Cup.

In-form Arsenal and Newcastle United will play against Oxford and Sheffield Wednesday respectively.

Tottenham will host League One Portsmouth, and Brighton travel to Middlesbrough in FA Cup winner Michael Carrick’s first taste of the competition as Boro boss.

The draw threw up six all-Championship ties between Preston and Huddersfield, Norwich and Blackburn, Luton and Wigan, Bristol City and Swansea, Millwall and Sheffield United and Reading and Watford.
