Arsenal draw Nottingham Forest in FA Cup third round

Arsenal draw Nottingham Forest in FA Cup third round

Liverpool and Everton will face each other in the FA Cup next month after the third-round draw was given a derby flavour.

None exactly headlining matches for the third round of the cup, when the 20 winners of the last round are joined by 44 sides from the Premier League and Championship.

The Merseyside Derby is the standout game of the draw and will take place at Anfield in the first weekend of January.

High-flying Championship leaders Wolves have enjoyed a simply stunning season so far as they bid to return to the promised land of the Premier League.

Whatever decision is made on Monday, two appeals will be possible and a final ruling could well only come only after the vote. The withdrawal of the arrest warrant also prevented more than one European jurisdiction overseeing the case, the court said.

But Rosler stressed a need to focus on the first hurdle - beating Hereford, one of four non-league teams left in the prestigious competition, next week at Edgar Street.

It's another all-Premier League cup fixture for the Blues, who have become accustomed to them, against a side they met as recently as October.

Everton did eliminate the Reds from the tournament in 2009 when Dan Gosling scored the only goal of the game to settle a fourth round replay between sides. Fifth-tier teams AFC Fylde and Woking, as well as seventh-tier teams Hereford and Slough Town, are still alive. Cup holders Arsenal are away to Nottingham Forest and Chelsea have also been given a road trip, to Norwich City. The tie will be played between 5 and 8 January 2018 with confirmation of the exact time and day to be announced in due course.
