    Full List of English FA Cup Third Round Draw

    The FA Cup third round draw coughed up one of the best cup draws in recent history as eight-tier Marine FC will host current Premier League leaders Tottenham Hotspur.

    Marine are only the second team in history from the eighth tier of English soccer to reach the third round, as they’ve played seven games just to reach this stage.

    The minnows, based in Liverpool, will be under Tier 2 COVID-19 restrictions in England later this week and as long as nothing changes they will be able to have close to 1,600 fans to see Harry Kane, Jose Mourinho and Co. roll up at Rossett Park, which has a seating capacity of 389 people.

    “It’s an unbelievable draw,” Marine boss Neil Young told BBC Sport who were live on-site at Marine FC and fans could be heard celebrating from the nearby houses which overlook the pitch. “We will plan as best we can. Usually with Jose’s teams, he puts pretty strong sides out. We have won seven games to get here and this is a great reward.”

    Sixty-four teams now know their opponents in the third round of the English FA Cup, after the draw was completed on Monday night.

    Liverpool will travel to face Aston Villa in the third round of the FA Cup, while Manchester United welcome Watford to Old Trafford.

    Arsenal, the defending champions will face Newcastle.
