Manchester City set to face Chelsea – FA Cup 2022/23 third round draw

The draw for the third round of the FA Cup has been carried out.

England’s biggest clubs enter the competition at this stage. All 44 teams from the Premier League and Championship will make their first FA Cup appearances of the season.

Meanwhile, four non-league teams remain in the competition. Fifth-tier clubs Wrexham, Chesterfield and Boreham Wood have all qualified for the third round, while Dagenham & Redbridge could also join them if they defeat Gillingham in their replay.

The most eye-catching tie of the round is between Manchester City and Chelsea. The two teams were also drawn against each other in the Carabao Cup earlier this season, which the Cityzens won 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

Holders Liverpool will begin their defence of the trophy with a home clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers. The last meeting between the two finished 3-1 to the Reds on the final day of last season.

These were two of five all-Premier League ties. Manchester United will host Everton, Crystal Palace will welcome Southampton to Selhurst Park, and Brentford will face West Ham United.

The ties are set to take place around the weekend of January 7, 2023.
