Watford to host Bristol City in FA Cup third round

Watford’s FA Cup third round tie is a repeat of their Carabao Cup second round game, with Bristol City the visitors to Vicarage Road.

Marco Silva saw his Watford side dumped out of the League Cup by their Championship opponents back in August and will be hoping for revenge this time around.

Etienne Capoue had given the hosts the lead that day, before Freddie Hinds, Bobby Reid and Niclas Eliasson saw City through, Adrian Mariappa got an injury-time consolation.

The Hornets were dumped out of the FA Cup by League One Millwall last year, after beating Burton Albion in the third round, and will be looking for a repeat of their run to the semi-final in 2016, rather than last season’s exploits.

It is unlikely that the game will be chosen for live TV coverage, meaning it will be a 3pm kick-off on January 6.

Ipswich Town v Sheffield United

Watford v Bristol City

Birmingham City v Burton Albion

Liverpool v Everton
