Premier League and Championship clubs will begin their FA Cup campaigns this weekend as the third round kicks off with Manchester City’s trip to Swindon on Friday night.

Four non-league clubs have made it this far, with National League leaders Chesterfield travelling to European champions Chelsea in perhaps the pick of the ties.

Kidderminster Harriers are the lowest-ranked team left in the competition and welcome Reading, while Yeovil entertain Bournemouth and AFC Wimbledon travel to Boreham Wood.

There are three all-Premier League ties — West Ham host Leeds, Watford visit holders Leicester and Steven Gerrard takes his Aston Villa side to Old Trafford.
