Your Get Down On This Weekends FA Cup 3rd Round Action

With the nation’s most romantic football competition back this weekend, From Mars highlights some of the games to look out for and where you can catch all the action.

West Ham v Man City

The pressure is cranking up on Pep Guardiola, with Manchester City falling behind in the title race and dropping into 4th place. This game will surely be seen as a must win for Pep but his side face stiff competition, with the Hammers coming into some good form recently – particularly on home soil.

Ipswich v Lincoln City

Lincoln overcame League 1 side Oldham in the previous round with a thrilling 3-2 victory. Confidence will be high among Danny Cowley’s men as Lincoln are flying high at the top of the Conference Premier and could shock Championship side Ipswich who are only 6 points above the drop zone. From Mars’ one to watch this weekend.

Birmingham City v Newcastle United

Newcastle are looking great this season and are looking like certainties to go up. Rafa Benitez has won the competition previously with Liverpool and this could be a chance to put Newcastle back on the map again. The two sides met in December with Newcastle coming out emphatic 4-0 winners.

West Brom v Derby County

Both of these sides are in great form with both winning 2 out of their last 3 matches. Add in the fact that this is a midlands derby and you have what could be a great game. Steve Maclaren will hope to upset a strong Premier League side as his managerial bingo marches on.
