FA Cup
Fulham will face Bristol City at Ashton Gate in the Third Round of the FA Cup over the weekend of Friday 7th until Monday 10th January 2022. Winning clubs collecting £82,000 from the competition prize fund.

The last time Fulham faced Bristol City was this season September when we drew 1-1 at Ashton Gate. The last time we played them in the FA Cup was back in December 1989 when City won 2-1 at Ashton Gate.

The draw for the Emirates FA Cup third round proper was made on Monday evening, as Premier League and EFL Championship clubs join the competition.

Following the weekend's second round ties, with three still to be decided, there were 67 clubs in the hat for the draw which took place before the final tie of the weekend between Boreham Wood and St. Albans City.

Current holders Leicester City will have home advantage as they play fellow EPL club Watford. There's a further twist as Hornets boss Claudio Ranieri returns to the club where he won the Premier League title back in 2016, while Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers also had a spell in charge of Watford back in 2008.

One eye-catching tie sees new Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard, a former Cup winner with Liverpool, make his Cup bow as a manager with a trip to play Manchester United at Old Trafford.

There will be a couple of local derbies across the country, with south London neighbours Millwall and Crystal Palace meeting while 2013 Cup winners Wigan Athletic will welcome Blackburn Rovers from across Lancashire.

League Two's Swindon Town will welcome current Premier League leaders Manchester City to the County Ground, while there are trips to top-flight clubs for the likes of Chesterfield and Morecambe in Chelsea and Spurs respectively.

And Shrewsbury Town manager Steve Cotterill, whose Burnley team knocked out Liverpool in the third round back in 2005, will have another opportunity to plot a Cup victory over the Reds as his EFL League One side head to Anfield.
