Stoke City will face high-flying Leicester City in the FA Cup third round following tonight’s draw.
The Potters will host the Foxes in January in what looks a mouthwatering clash with Michael O’Neill’s side hoping to make home advantage count.
It looks a tough draw on paper given Leicester currently sit fourth in the Premier League, but Stoke are having an excellent season themselves with the club currently eighth in the Championship.
And Stoke fans are relishing the challenge of claiming the scalp of the Foxes in what is one of the most intriguing ties of the round.
We took to Twitter to see what they had to say.
Pownzzz: “We’ll give it a good crack.”
Grant: “Round four here we come.”
Harry: “Easy stuff lads.”
StokeMatt: “We always get easy draws.”
George: “Easy peasy.”
No More Laughs: “My 30th Birthday will be spent in lockdown at home instead of watching us beat Leicester.”
While Stoke fans were rather pleased with the draw, Leicester supporters were not in a great mood as it was announced during their 2-1 defeat to Fulham.
Brendan Rodgers’ side were expected to beat the struggling Cottagers but were stunned by Scott Parker’s side at the King Power.
And Foxes fans were not sure about the visit to the Bet 365. Here’s what they had to say.
