FA Cup third round draw: Chelsea face Chesterfield, Man Utd take on Aston Villa, Man City travel to Swindon

The draw for the 2021/22 FA Cup third round has taken place with Chelsea vs non-league Chesterfield the standout tie.

As well as the European champions welcoming the side who currently sit top of the National League, fellow non-leaguers Yeovil Town were also handed an attractive tie – with the Glovers set to travel to Championship high-fliers AFC Bournemouth.


Meanwhile, the lowest-ranked team left in the competition, National League North Kidderminster Harriers will welcome second-tier Reading.

Other interesting games include Liverpool vs Shrewsbury Town – a repeat of the 2019/20 fourth round meeting between the pair – Tottenham vs Morecambe, Newcastle United vs Cambridge United and Swindon Town vs Manchester City.

Several all-Premier League affairs were pulled out of the hat too, including Manchester United vs Aston Villa, which will see Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard travel to Old Trafford for the first time as a manager.

The current holders of the famous, old trophy are Leicester City, who beat Chelsea 1-0 in last year’s final courtesy of a wonderstrike from Youri Tielemans.
