The FA Cup third round starts on Friday 4th January, and for the majority of English football fans, it’s the ultimate knockout competition. Recognised as the oldest football competition in the world, it gives the minnows a chance to overcome the seemingly insurmountable power of the Premier League teams. Unimaginable footballing history may once again be made if any of the league 2 teams, or even the national league side, Barnet FC, could become the giant killers for this year.

Woking (minnows) v Watford (giants) – Sunday 6th January – Kick off @ 1400hrs
The minnows of the cup are Woking FC, and they’re the last remaining National League South side left in the competition. They have a wonderful opportunity to welcome the visitors, Watford, on home turf, which gives the home side a slight advantage. The Cards are surely going to need a bit more than luck against the Hornets, who are 4 divisions above them in the Premier League. The home crowd will be going crazy in a bid to help overthrow the north London football giants.
Wolves v Liverpool – Monday 7th January – Kick off @ 1945hrs
This is probably the most interesting and is poised to be the most tightly contested match of the third round. Wolves go into this match with a boost in confidence after their win at Tottenham recently. It was a convincing 1-3 win for the Wolves, who came to life after a wonder goal from Tottenham’s Harry Kane in the first 20 minutes. However, it wasn’t until the 72nd minute of the game when Willy Boly put Wolves back in the game. The shock of the goal sent Spurs into meltdown. Tottenham were all at sea after that and couldn’t regain their composure. Two Wolverhampton goals late on sealed Tottenham’s fate.
