The FA Cup third round draw takes place tonight and many are hoping for a smoother road to the final than last year, which saw Arsenal win the competition once again.
The Cup Specialists won their 14th FA Cup in 2020 after winning the final 2-1 against Chelsea in an empty Wembley stadium.
This year, the cup is more open than ever as teams from the top two leagues enter the fray tonight after the draw.
The draw will begin this evening ahead of the Second Round game between Boreham Wood and St Albans City.
Last year Chelsea and Arsenal fought for the cup in a London derby at Wembley Stadium, but with Covid no fan cheered alongside them as the Gunners lifted the trophy.
This season could hold more surprises as fans win the cup and can help their teams take on the competitive goliaths.

- Manchester City 7/2
- Chelsea 6/1

The usual suspects are bookmaker favorites, Manchester City being the clear contenders.
Chelsea and Manchester United are tied according to SkyBet and lead Liverpool in the top three for the country’s oldest cup competition.
Last year’s winners are a whopping 12/1 tied with rivals Tottenham and 2015/16 Premier League winners Leicester City.
Despite their poor performances in the league, Everton are 20/1 to lift the trophy given their talent to return to the squad.
Tonight’s draw will bring together the biggest names in English football in the competition as the wonders of the Cup reserve incredible clashes and surprises.
Further down the odds list, teams like Fulham, Norwich City, Watford, Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest are all 80/1 or higher with struggling Championship teams such as Derby, Huddersfield and Luton are 200/1 or higher !
The odds could change drastically if tonight’s draw pits multiple Premier League opponents against each other.
