The draw for the third round of the FA Cup has been completed – and Manchester City vs Chelsea highlights a mouth-watering round of fixtures.
Graham Potter’s Blues will face a tough task to repeat last season’s run to the final, which they achieved under Thomas Tuchel.
The Citizens, meanwhile, will be hoping to take one step closer to adding to the sole FA Cup title they have won under Pep Guardiola.
Top flight leaders Arsenal, meanwhile, will travel to Oxford United of League One, whilst Newcastle have a trip to Sheffield Wednesday, also of the third tier.
And Antonio Conte’s Tottenham host 2008 FA Cup winners Portsmouth at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Non-league representation is also in round three. Chesterfield host West Brom, Boreham Wood take on Accrington Stanley, and Wrexham travel to Coventry.
Dagenham & Redbridge, meanwhile, will host Premier League Leicester if they beat League Two Gillingham in a second round replay.
