FA Cup Third Round Resumes This Weekend in England

The third round of the English FA Cup takes centre stage this weekend with the encounter between Tottenham and Aston Villa headlining the fixtures of the oldest football competition in England.

The match will be played at the white hart lane as Spurs welcome Championship side, Aston Villa on the back of a recent morale boosting victory over Chelsea in the previous round of matches in the premiership.

Meanwhile Aston Villa are having a mixed kind of season as results have not been consistent even as they have had some sort of a mini revival under new boss Steve Bruce, after a disastrous start to the season in the Championship.

Other games in this round of fixtures include a return to Old Trafford for former Man United great, Jaap Stam as he would lead his side, Reading to a match against his former club Manchester United.

Stam who won three titles with Man United has said he would come to his former ground hoping to cause an upset even as he hailed Mourinho’s work at Old Trafford.
