FA Cup third-round draw simulator: Man Utd is given a difficult task, as Liverpool and Arsenal have tricky away matches

In light of this afternoon’s FA Cup third-round draw, SPORTbible decided to run a simulator to check which Premier League teams received the ties.

On Sunday, the FA Cup’s third round draw will take place. Teams from the Premier League and Championship will compete in this highly anticipated cup competition, which gives clubs from all levels of the pyramid the opportunity to play the best teams in England and Wales.

After defeating United 2-1 in the June championship game at Wembley, Manchester City is the reigning champion.

As Pep Guardiola’s squad, United, and the other eighteen elite teams prepare to learn who they will play against in the third round, we thought it would be fun to run a draw simulator and check how each team performed.

The challenging assignment of playing Brighton at Old Trafford, a venue where the Seagulls have performed well in recent years, was given to United by our simulator.

Liverpool, however, will face a challenging road journey to FA Cup winners Leicester City, who are high flyers in the Championship.

Arsenal’s away matchup with Newcastle, a team in the Premier League, presents a challenge for Mikel Arteta’s team.

In other action, holders City will travel far and wide to take on Championship team Plymouth. It promises to be a tough trip for the defending triple winners.

Chelsea has been assigned an all-Premier League matchup against Crystal Palace, while Tottenham will host Sheffield Wednesday at home.
