FA Cup third round draw details revealed as Tottenham Hotspur look to quench their trophy drought

According to Football.London, Tottenham Hotspur will know their opponents for the Emirates FA Cup third round soon as the details for the draw are available. The draw will take place on Monday, December 6, when Antonio Conte will realise the team he has to face.

Leicester City were the winners last year as they beat Chelsea in the final thanks to a belter from Youri Tielemans. Tottenham would hope to challenge for the title to vanquish the drought of silverware.

All the second round fixtures take place this weekend as the lower league clubs try to upset the Championship and Premier League clubs. The FA Cup is the oldest cup competition currently, and it has seen many surprising results over the years.

The draw will be part of the coverage for the local non-league Hertfordshire derby between Boreham Wood and St Albans City. It would get broadcasted on ITV4 at 6:45 PM GMT, where Conte would know whom he would face.

Twenty winners from the second round would get drawn alongside 44 clubs comprising the first and second division. The third round fixtures would occur between January 7 and 10, and the squad depth will get tested as Spurs will be going through a cramped fixture list.

The North London club only reached the fifth round last year when they got knocked out by Everton. The match ended in a 4-4 draw at full-time, and the Toffees scored the winner during the extra time, which sent them to the quarter-finals.

We need to gather ourselves and get ready for the cup competition since it could give us a chance to win the trophy. It is not wrong to say that there are other clubs better placed than us to win the trophy with their impeccable squad depth.

But cup competitions are often decided by other factors as well, such as the quality of the opposition we get in the draw. Not to mention, luck also plays some role in these one-off games.

If we succeed in the cup competitions while achieving a top-four finish and qualifying for the Champions League, this season would be a great start under the Italian boss. However, no matter the opposition we get, Conte should be smart with his squad selection.

We should not disregard the importance of this cup competition. Having not won a major trophy since 2008, it’s not like we can pick and choose what trophies we would want to get our hands on. And it is wise to remember that Manchester City started their decade-long domination of English football with a FA Cup triumph in 2011.
