The third round of the FA Cup will take place from Friday to Monday and so far none of the games have been postponed due to Covid.

The virus has impacted the first game up, though, as Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has tested positive. This means the Spaniard was not present when his side beat Swindon Town at the County Ground on Friday night.

Chelsea and Liverpool are among the other top sides to have been hit by injuries and other absences, though games are expected to go ahead as planned.

Another nine third-round matches are set for broadcast across the weekend as the FA Cup takes centre stage.

Here’s all you need to know about the draw and where to watch those games.
