Manchester City to face West Ham in FA Cup 3rd Round

Manchester City will face fellow Premier League side West Ham United away in the FA Cup 3rd Round.

This is the second year running that City have drawn a Premier League side away in their entry stage of the FA Cup, with the fixture to be played on the weekend of 6–9 January 2017.

It’ll also be City’s first trip to West Ham’s new London Stadium, with a league tie to follow there on 1 February.

West Ham are currently languishing in 17th place in the league table, but showed against Manchester United a week ago that they still present a challenge when they took a point away from Old Trafford. This weekend, however, they were thrashed 5-1 by Arsenal at home, and City will hope that West Ham shows up next month.
