Manchester United will play against Villa for third round of FA cup as they were paired in ties after Sunday’s Draw.United faces similiar situation as last year though not serene this time.Aston Villa have improved their grounds and standards on every basis and were narrowly defeated in their last game against Arsenal.Standing 7th in league and 3 points behind United its not the same situation as United,who won last year against Villa playing at OT will not have same situation.Villa having home game advantage and no-UFEA match stress will try to gain maximum out of this one keeping in mind with that last year’s 2-1 defeat.United were the finalist for FA last year and are the record holders winning it for 11 occasions.This makes us favorite i guess. :)

Tottenham v/s Reading Sunderland v/s Wigan Athletic West Ham v/s Manchester City
All FA fixtures likely to be played on 5 or 6 of Jan 2008.
