The FA Cup third round draw took place today with many Premier League teams hoping for a friendly draw in order to progress. Liverpool were among those waiting to see who they would draw they got and fans will surely be happy with the news that they drew AFC Wimbledon.
Liverpool have made a bit of a habit of making life difficult for themselves in the early rounds of the FA Cup. In January of 2013, the Reds were on the end of a giant killing as they crashed out of the FA Cup in the fourth round, losing 3-2 to Oldham. Oldham, at the time, were 55 places below Liverpool, who boasted a strike force of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge. Liverpool fans will be hoping this years competition runs a little more smoothly.
Here’s how fans reacted to news of the draw:

Last time we played a Wimbledon in the FA Cup it went down as one of the biggest upsets of the century. Try and avoid that this time. #LFC
