The third round of the FA Cup saw Premier League and Championship clubs enter the fray and fans were treated to some classic upsets immediately.  

Aston Villa’s young side – standing in for their Covid-stricken teammates – put in a valiant effort against Liverpool but they were ultimately swept aside, losing 4-1 at Villa Park on Friday night while Wolves topped Crystal Palace.

The magic of the cup truly came alive on Saturday in the early kick-offs when Chorley defeated Derby 2-0 at home. The win was a remarkable result for the non-league club, who took the scalp of the Championship side in style.  

It was business as usual for the remaining early games, although Everton needed extra time to defeat Rotherham United with Abdoulaye Doucoure scoring the winning goal early in the added period.  Luton Town edged to victory over Reading while Norwich defeated Coventry and Milwall defeated non-league club Boreham Wood.  In a clash between two struggling Championship sides, Nottingham Forest defeated Cardiff City by a goal to nil to move into the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Later in the afternoon, Burnley survived a penalty shootout scare against MK Dons, while Fulham required extra-time to defeat west London rivals QPR. There was finally relief for Sheffield United, too, who ended their miserable winless run with a frantic 3-2 victory over Bristol Rovers. Arsenal required extra-time to defeat Newcastle as Emile Smith Rowe proved his promise once again while Scott McTominay celebrated taking the Manchester United armband by scoring the winner against Watford.
