The FA Cup third round is one of the highlights of the football season. After the preamble (no offence fans of ‘real’ football) of qualifying, and the first two rounds, the premier league big boys join the draw and part-timers might find themselves walking out at Old Trafford or Anfield.
Whilst there are no massive (read non-league vs premier league) potential upsets in the draw this year, there are plenty of ties that will provide interesting viewing, and a few sleepless nights for managers, particularly if they’re not having a very good time in the league.
Below is a list of the premier league teams that find themselves up against lower league opposition.
Blackburn vs Manchester City
Aston Villa vs Sheffield United
Everton vs QPR
Middlesbrough vs Hull
Southampton vs Burnley
Stoke vs Leicester
Nottingham Forest vs West Ham
Sunderland vs Carlisle
Liverpool vs Oldham
Liverpool in particular will be looking for revenge against a team that knocked them out recently, but do Sunderland and West Ham even want to win these games?
In terms of the offers, the best (for the matches above) is the refund if an underdog wins at Unibet. There are also accumulator offers at 188Bet and Hititbet if you fancy the premier league class to shine through.
For the all premier league matches Manchester United vs Swansea isn’t quite the easy game Moyes would like for his team given their recent home form and trouble in the league.
But the real highlight should be a rejuvenated Tottenham’s trip across north London to rivals and league leaders Arsenal. Offers for this match include cashback on specific markets if there’s a red card at any time (which isn’t a bad edge given the lack of love between them), refunds for a draw or a penalty awarded, and double delight on the anytime goal scorer market.
For full details of all the offers for the weekend’s football, not just the FA Cup, can be found here on the forum or check out the Today’s Offers page over the weekend.
And remember this, if happen to be the manager of a club near the bottom of the table. Lose and you want to concentrate on the league, win and it’ll give you a boost of form you can take into your next league matches. When you think about it like that, everyone’s a winner.
