Everton will face last years Premier League champions Leicester City in the Emirates FA Cup third round. The game will be played on Saturday 7th January, with kickoff at 3pm BST (10am EST, 7am PST).

The last time that the two sides met the Foxes were officially crowned champions at the King Power Stadium. Ranieri's men ran out 3-1 winners as they comfortably beat the Blues with Jamie Vardy bagging two while Andy King got on the scoresheet.

Kevin Mirallas got himself a goal in the 88th minute but it was a day to forget for Everton, seeing a club like Leicester winning the league while they stumbled to a bottom half finish for the second time in two years.

Everton will now be looking for revenge as they hope to finish break their trophy drought, having not had their hands on silverware for 21 years.

The ties are due to be played between the 6th and 9th of January and the tie will be played at Goodison Park.
