To back up the scientists claim it's the FA cup 3rd round today
A Cup enters giant-killing stage |
The third round of the FA Cup kicks off this weekend and has thrown up many intriguing ties.
Arguably, the best of the bunch is Manchester United's potential banana-skin of a match away to Conference side Burton Albion.
Cup holders Arsenal host Championship side Cardiff, while six-times champions Liverpool face a tricky trip to Luton.
Meanwhile, League One side Huddersfield will be looking to spring a shock against Premiership leaders Chelsea.
There will also be comprehensive third-round highlights during Saturday's Match of the Day at 2230 GMT on BBC One and live coverage of the fourth-round draw on Monday 10 December.
Middlesbrough face a testing trip to Conference North's Nuneaton, while Aston Villa travel to Championship strugglers Hull.
"Staying in this division is our priority this season, and a lot more important, but I'm sure everyone at the club would love nothing more than to knock Villa out in front of the television cameras," said Hull defender Sam Collins.
Everton, who have won the Cup five times, will be looking to put their Premiership troubles behind them with victory at the New Den, against Millwall.
Graeme Souness will also be hoping for an easy Saturday for his injury-ravaged Newcastle team as they entertain League Two side Mansfield.
"To get a Premiership club and play in a stadium like Newcastle's in my first year as manager is more than my wildest dreams could have come up with," Mansfield boss Peter Shirtliff told the club website.
"We will be going up there and having a go at competing, and get stuck in. We have nothing to prove so all the pressure will be on them."
Wigan, who are in the semi-finals of the League Cup, will be looking to continue their exceptional season by overcoming Leeds at the JJB Stadium.
It's the day when lower league teams get to play against the superstars which always throws up a giantkiller.
