2022/23 FA Cup third round predictions

The third round of the 2022/23 FA Cup is upon us with many exciting ties due to be played over the weekend.

Premier League sides join the action at this stage in proceedings as teams up and down England’s leagues eye up a trip to Wembley.

The draw for the third round was conducted back in November.

Some intriguing fixtures have been picked up for television coverage over the third round weekend. Manchester United’s Friday night clash with Everton is available on ITV1, while both Gillingham vs Leicester and Tottenham vs Portsmouth can be viewed via BBC services.

Sheffield Wednesday and Newcastle square off on BBC One on Saturday night, with Liverpool vs Wolves on ITV4 later that evening.

Sunday afternoon sees another clash between Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City and Graham Potter’s Chelsea. That blockbuster fixture kicks off at 16:30 GMT.

Man Utd’s excellent form hints at a strong second half of the season under Erik ten Hag. They face a struggling Everton side all at sea under Frank Lampard and really shouldn’t encounter any issues at all at Old Trafford.

Tottenham got back on track by beating Crystal Palace last time out but have struggled any stodgy lower league opposition, so don’t count out Portsmouth in north London.

Liverpool will hope to have too much quality for Wolves, even if they are enduring a horrible dip in form, while Man City will be confident of securing a third win against Chelsea in all competitions this season.

Arsenal’s trip to Oxford on Monday night rounds off the evening, with the Gunners confident of reaching the fourth round given their sizzling Premier League form this season.
