Leeds United have been handed a potentially tricky FA Cup tie, as they have been drawn away to Crawley Town.

The Whites beat Everton in the Premier League on Saturday evening, but the attention briefly turned towards the FA Cup on Monday night.

The draw has served up a trip to West Sussex for Leeds, as they take on League Two side Crawley in a potential third round banana skin.

John Yems’ side sit 15th in League One, winning just one of their last five league games, but the game won’t give Leeds ideal conditions to play their game.

They were dumped out of the FA Cup by Sutton United in 2017, and will be wary of suffering a similar embarrassment when they head to Crawley next month.

Crawley hero Sergio Torres took to Twitter to react to the draw, with the Argentinian admitting that he is ‘buzzing’ with the clash whilst admitting that he loves compatriot Marcelo Bielsa.

There are always strange connections when these games are drawn, and Torres is one; he played for Steve Evans at Crawley, and Evans wanted to re-sign him for Rotherham in 2012.

Evans went on to manage Leeds a matter of years later, and Torres will now be hoping to see Crawley dump the Whites out of the FA Cup – even if that means Bielsa losing.
