FA Cup Draws: Tottenham Get Newport County, Chelsea vs Newcastle Potenially


fa cup

The FA Cup draw round of 32 was made in full just a little over an hour ago, and it includes two match-ups where both teams are from England’s top flight. Liverpool versus West Bromwich Albion and Southampton-Watford are the two all Premier League draws with Chelsea providing the opportunity for a third, should they dispatch Norwich City in the replay.

The Blues battled Norwich to a goalless draw on Saturday, while their arch-rivals and current title holders Arsenal fell in the third round, ensuring that this tournament will see a new champion.

It was the earliest loss in Arsene Wenger’s history at the club, as he was forced to play a much weaker side, due to a significant amount of injuries.

Elsewhere among the London clubs, Tottenham Hotspur drew Newport County and Crystal Palace could provide a somewhat compelling fixture if they beat Brighton & Hove Albion, and thus advance to take on Middlesbrough.
