Manchester City’s ball number in FA Cup 3rd Round revealed – and who they can play

Manchester City and 43 other Premier League and Championship clubs will join the FA Cup in the third round, with the draw scheduled to take place on Monday night at Stamford Bridge.

The first and second tier sides will join the 20 winners from this weekend’s FA Cup second round ties, with City ball number 23 in the bag for the draw, which will be broadcast on BBC One at 7.30pm on Monday.

The FA Cup third round is scheduled to take place over the weekend of Saturday 5 January 2019.

City have not won the historic cup since 2011, when they ended their trophy drought with a famous win over Stoke at Wembley, with Yaya Touré scoring a winning goal that Blues will never forget.

Potential opponents range from Manchester United to Slough Town, with the draw capable of giving City a Premier League big dog or non-league minnow.
