City Draw Watford In FA Cup Third Round

Manchester City will face Watford at the Etihad Stadium in the Third Round of the FA Cup. The game will be played over the weekend of 5 & 6 January 2013 depending on whether ITV or ESPN decide to show the game, live.

Previous FA Cup encounters against Watford

Who remembers when FA Cup replays could be replayed until a team won. No penalty shootouts in those days.

The Third Round encounter way back in the 80's took three matches to finally decide a winner.
