Many Leeds fans want Chelsea in FA Cup third round; hopeful of victory

Elland Road Revie Stand

The draw for the third round of the FA Cup takes place on Monday evening, so who do Leeds United fans want to face?

This evening sees one of the most exciting and important moments in many a football fan’s calendar, with the draw for the third round of the FA Cup made at 7:00pm (GMT).

Among the sides joining the competition at this stage is Championship club Leeds United, a team with a rich history in the Cup who will no doubt be hoping to go on a run under current manager Steve Evans.

Leeds’ league form has been hit-and-miss to say the least, but they got back to winning ways on Saturday when they overcame Hull City 2-1 to leave them 17th in the second tier with 19 matches played.

Next up for Leeds is a trip to Charlton Athletic and the Whites will be quietly confident of making it back-to-back wins for the second time this season, but before that all eyes will be on the famous velvet bag.

Leeds’ official Twitter account asked fans who they would like to get in the third round and while there were many different responses a large number of supporters fancied a tie with Chelsea.

With Jose Mourinho’s side struggling this season, Whites’ supporters were feeling optimistic that they could cause a shock if the two old rivals are drawn together to play next month.
