Crystal Palace vs Everton
Everton team go head-to-head against Crystal Palace in the third round of the 2023-24 FA Cup Showdown. This matchup is scheduled to take place on January 04, 2023, at Selhurst Park Stadium. Both teams are maintaining an average spot in the EPL Standings, where the Crystal Palace is in 15th place and the Everton is in 17th. The Everton side heads into this battle after having three consecutive losses in all competitions. The Everton team has been looking dull in the recent few weeks and they need a little turnaround on their defensive end, which is allowing two or more goals.
Crystal Palace, on the flip side, heads into this clash after a 2-1 loss against Chelsea, where Michael Olise netted the lone goal for Crystal side. The Crystal Palace side is without a win in their recent eight games, where they have ended most of their games with draws. The Crystal Palace side is quite good at scoring, but they can hit harder on their defensive end, which is continuously allowing goals. When compared, both teams look equally competitive, where the Everton side remains unbeaten over Crystal Palace in the prior four meetings. But I don’t think this match will repeat the same trend, where this battle might end with a 1-1 draw.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Burnley
Tottenham vs. Burnley encounter will take place in Round 3 of the 2023-24 FA Cup Showdown on January 06, 2023. The Tottenham team withholds a decent attire from the start of the season, where they are currently placed in the fifth position in the EPL Standings. They have won the FA Cup about eight times in history. Currently, Tottenham remains unbeaten in four matchups, where their last game ended with a 2-1 win over Everton. Tottenham squad is maintaining a well-balanced record on either side of the field, which seems quite impressive. In their previous meeting, Tottenham defeated Burnley, thus Ange Postecoglou’s club should have no trouble handling Burnley this time around.
The Burnley team, on the contrary, heads into this clash after a disappointing 0-2 loss against Liverpool, where Burnley had only 31% possessions and none of their nine shots entered target. The Burnley side is altering with wins and losses from the start of the EPL season, where they are currently placed in the second last position of the EPL Standings. Burnley’s side has been too weak in recent times, which is seen by the fact that they have lost seven of their last ten games. Therefore, the Burnley side needs to take decisive steps, if they want to win this battle. Thus, Tottenham Hotspur remains a better team, and they stand a good chance of winning this battle with at least two goals.
Chelsea vs Preston North End
Chelsea will lock horns with Preston’s side in Round Three of the FA Cup on January 06, 2023, at Stamford Bridge. Currently, the Chelsea team is in tenth place in the EPL Standings, while the Preston team is in 9th place in the Championship. The Chelsea side heads into this battle with a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace, where Mykhailo Mudryk and Noni Madueke netted goals for the Chelsea team. The Chelsea side seems quite improving on either side of the field. They secure a decent home record; remaining unbeaten in their latest five games at home. The Chelsea squad’s scoring capability is decent, but they need a little bit of alterations on their defensive end, which is conceding two or more goals in recent times.
The Preston side, on the other hand, heads into this battle after a 2-1 Championship win over Leeds United, where Alan Browne and Liam Millar netted goals for Preston. In that matchup, the Preston team had 44% possessions, where four of their 13 shots were on target. The Preston team’s recent victory has snapped the two-game losing streaking of them. Despite their losses, the team keeps on scoring in most of their matchups. But they have conceded about eight goals in their last three games, which needs a big bounceback. Both Chelsea and Preston teams look to be equally competitive, and they both fail in their defensive end. So, this matchup is likely to end up with a draw.
Manchester City vs Huddersfield
Round three of the 2023-24 FA Cup Showdown will feature a battle between Manchester City and Huddersfield teams. This matchup is scheduled to take place on January 07, 2023, at Etihad Stadium. Manchester City has won seven FA Cup titles in history, which seems quite impressive. The current form of the Manchester side looks much more prominent, and if they put in still more effort, the team will likely acquire the title this time as well. Coming to this game, Manchester City has maintained its dominancy over the Huddersfield side on various occasions, and that trend is likely to repeat in this matchup as well. In all competitions, the Manchester team remains unbeaten in their recent eight games, and they have lost only one of their ten games. Hence, Manchester City remains much more solid than their opponent and stands a higher chance of beating Huddersfield in this matchup.
The Huddersfield, on the other hand, heads into this battle after a 3-0 win over Blackburn Rovers, which remains the only victory of Huddersfield in the last six matchups. The Huddersfield side has not maintained a prominent form from the start of the season, where they have made only two attempts to win in their last ten games. But they hold a decent record on their home field, which alone is not enough for the team to win Manchester City in this battle. Hence, Manchester City remains a better squad, and they stand a good chance of winning this matchup.
Arsenal vs Liverpool
Liverpool team goes head-to-head against Arsenal in Round Three of the 2023-24 FA Cup on January 07, 2023, at Emirates Stadium. This clash between the two hot rivals is going to be the most enthralling battle of the day. Currently, the Liverpool and Arsenal teams occupy the first and second places in the EPL Standings with two points difference. The Liverpool team heads into this battle after a 0-2 win over Burnley, where Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota netted goals for the Liverpool side. The Liverpool side is making massive stunts this year, where they currently remain unbeaten in their recent six games. They secure one of the best offense and defense in the league, which is quite impressive. Therefore, the Liverpool team will likely put its fullest potential to win this battle over the Arsenal team.
The Arsenal side, on the other hand, heads into this matchup after a 1-1 tie against Liverpool, where Gabriel Magalhães netted the lone goal for the Arsenal side. In that matchup, the Arsenal side maintained about 49% possessions and two of their 13 shots were on target. The Arsenal is regaining its form and enjoying a stunning season, where they are altering between first and second places in the EPL Standings. Arsenal remains the strong rival and the right competitor for the Liverpool side, who remains unbeaten in their recent three meetings. This clash might end up in a draw or the Arsenal team might use their home team advantage.

Manchester United has not enjoyed a strong record in recent weeks, where they have attempted only three wins in their recent ten games. Their home form is much better than their current away records; remaining winless in their recent five away matchups. But this time around, the Manchester United side is expected to make alterations on either end to win this battle over the Wigan Athletic.
The Wigan Athletic team, on the other hand, heads into this clash after a 0-1 loss against Derby County in Football League One. The Wigan Athletic is on a three-game losing streak, which is quite disappointing. The Wigan Athletic is having an awful season, where they are currently placed in the 19th position in the Football League One standings. The Wigan side holds a shaky defensive unit, on which they need a clear bounce back.
