Watch Arsenal vs Leeds United in the FA Cup 3rd round
Arsenal and Leeds United come face to face in the world's oldest football competition.
Arsenal have a rich history in the FA Cup, boasting a record 13 victories overall. They won it 3 times between 2014 and 2017 and would love to get their hands on the trophy once more.
The Gunners are languishing in the unfamiliar position of 12th in the Premier League, but are showing signs of life under new manager Mikel Arteta.
They take on another fallen giant in Leeds United. Once a regular top-four contender in the EPL, they have spent years trying to get back into the top tier of English football. Currently vying with West Brom for automatic promotion, the signs are promising. But they have a date with Arsenal first.

Who will win the FA Cup 3rd round match between Arsenal and Leeds United?
After years of trying, Leeds United look like they are finally ready to return to the biggest stage in English football, the Premier League. They sit alongside West Brom at the top of the Championship table with a nine-point lead over Brentford in third place.
Once accustomed to regular showdowns with the Gunners, they will relish this potential early preview of what life back in the top flight will be like.
