Mark Donaldson and Craig Burley go head-to-head in predicting the midweek Prem matches, as Liverpool look to keep the pressure on Man City.

Liverpool were drawn away to Wolverhampton Wanderers in one of two all-English Premier League matchups in the draw for the third round of the FA Cup on Monday.

Bournemouth and Brighton were also paired in the draw held at the Stamford Bridge home of defending champions Chelsea.

The holders will begin the defence of the trophy on Jan. 5 with a home match against second-tier Nottingham Forest, who eliminated Arsenal at this stage last season.

Premier League leaders Manchester City will also face second-tier opposition in Rotherham as do Manchester United, who are at home to Reading.

Arsenal received an away draw against either third-tier Blackpool or non-league team Solihull, while Championship leaders Norwich City will face League One pacesetters Portsmouth.

Woking, one of two non-league sides guaranteed to be in the third round, will host Premier League team Watford. The other is Barnet, who are away to Sheffield United.

The matches will be played between Jan. 4 and Jan. 7.
